FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTROL OF SMART DM
Markham, Ontario – May 2007 – Cover-All Computer Services Corp. has ﬁnalized the purchase of SMART DM, located in Etobicoke. The deal will create a single umbrella organization that is capable of servicing all the mail communication needs of existing clients and new prospects alike.
Cover-All has been a respected name in data management & processing, and laser imaging services for 40 years, with specialties in the transactional market and variable colour segment. SMART DM has decades of experience in large volume letter shop and specialty ﬁnishing.
“The unique aspects to this arrangement” commented Mike Coverdale, President of Cover-All, “is that Cover-All and Smart DM will be running on ‘like’ platforms with the ability to move workload between facilities and enhancing each organization’s business continuity and disaster recovery plans. Ultimately it allows clients access to two separately managed, stand-alone facilities, yet with combined expertise going back decades.”
Management in each organization (which have both been family owned by Canadians) views this as an opportunity to bring added value to both client groups as there is limited overlap and clients can beneﬁt from a single source for transactional mail, large volume mailings, colour laser and specialty ﬁnished products. Although there will be some efﬁciency in process and management across the two plants, the intent is to maintain two distinct facilities – both offering transactional and promotional communications. “If you communicate through the mail on any level, Cover-All and SMART DM can now provide solutions.” said John Leonard, V.P. Sales and Marketing for SMART DM.
Clients and industry colleagues are encouraged to contact their representative for added information on how this could beneﬁt their mailing requirements.
