Mead & Co launches ScriptX Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner Program

New channel initiative benefits ISVs through tailored support and cost-effective pricing

30 April 2014 - Mead & Co today introduced the ScriptX Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner Program. Created to support and extend channel deployments of ScriptX, the world's favourite add-on for controlling the printing of browser-hosted content, the program benefits ISVs through a combination of powerful technology, personalised support and tailored pricing.

ScriptX is the de facto global standard for providing total control when printing html and PDF documents, labels or bar codes from client and server computers running Microsoft Windows. It ensures that printed formatting and appearance is consistent, whatever the actual browser settings on the individual computer. Over 2 million licensed users print more than 2 billion documents that use the advanced features of ScriptX every year. Millions more use the basic free version.

ScriptX has already been deployed by thousands of developers and ISVs across the globe, and the new program formalises the benefits that ISVs receive, enabling them to easily deliver the power of ScriptX to their customers and grow their revenues. It includes full email-based support, ongoing maintenance, direct access to the development team, early view of new versions and options, as well as generous margins, whether integrating ScriptX with the ISV's own software or managing licenses on behalf of customers.

"We rely on ScriptX as part of our market-leading healthcare applications. Through our Independent Software Vendor per-customer deal we can easily buy and manage client-side licenses for our end customers, giving us complete flexibility. This is combined with the peace of mind that comes from ScriptX's comprehensive support and future-proofed development roadmap. Joining the ScriptX ISV Partner Program is delivering real benefits to our business moving forward," said Ian Hodges, Development Lead - Clinical Products, Ideagen PLC.

The partner program is dedicated to two main channels. The Independent Software Vendor ISV-class license is aimed at ISVs that want to directly incorporate ScriptX into their web application products and distribute to customers through a single, company wide authorization. This enables ISVs to redistribute ScriptX within their software without restriction or the need for end customers to purchase their own ScriptX licenses.

Alternatively, the ISV per-customer license is aimed at ISVs who want to acquire and manage individual ScriptX licenses on behalf of their customers, providing a flexible and cost-effective solution to managing browser-based printing. Through the ISV per-customer license, developers benefit from joined-up support and a tailored discount program.

"ScriptX is the market leader when it comes to controlling browser-based printing, with a global installed base already in the millions," said Jerry Mead, CEO, Mead & Co. "Whether it is ensuring consistent printing of intranet content, within mission-critical applications such as producing patient labels or creating logistics documentation, ScriptX is the de facto standard. Our new ScriptX ISV Partner Program delivers significant benefits to developers, making it simple and cost-effective to control printing within their applications and consequently boosting their revenues."
