Tour DME and Discover How it Automates Variable Data Production

Attendees will see the amazing automation built into DME, a trendsetter in cross-media marketing solutions. Well before every consultant began touting the virtues of becoming a marketing solutions firm, DME had already established itself as a marketing visionary, helping marketers build their brands by leveraging data, talent and technology to communicate highly personalized, data-driven marketing messages (see DME case studies). Founded in 1982, DME evolved from a direct marketing company and now employs 500 people and uses a fleet of digital presses and related production software. [Personalized wrapping paper is just one of the interesting examples of DME's personalized offerings.]
