Building on the growth of personalized printing and multimedia direct marketing, Xerox Corporation has agreed to acquire XMPie for U.S. $54 million. A privately held company, XMPie is a leading provider of variable information software, which enables cross-media, personalized marketing programs. These programs combine communication outlets such as digitally printed direct mail, the Web, e-mail and other methods to reach customers with customized marketing materials that are relevant to the individual recipient and generate higher response rates.

Based in New York, XMPie specializes in software that allows graphic designers, marketing companies and print providers to create marketing pieces with an individual's name along with information and images based on buying preferences and personal interests. In addition to creating targeted print communications like brochures, direct mailers, and catalogs, XMPie software can automatically generate related e-mails that drive customers to Web pages filled with information specifically designed for them. These integrated marketing campaigns rely on digital printing systems like the Xerox iGen3� Digital Production Press to produce customized, high quality marketing collaterals.

The market for variable data printing that depends on software like XMPie to personalize applications is projected to triple in the U.S. at a compounded annual rate of 26 percent from U.S. $5.3 billion in 2004 to U.S. $16.6 billion in 2009, according to industry research firm InfoTrends.

The XMPie software suite is compatible with industry-standard printing technologies from companies such as Adobe Systems Inc. XMPie can develop customized Web sites for online purchases and use a single database to generate both print and Web pages, tracking response rates and Web traffic to measure the effectiveness and profitability of marketing campaigns.

LXMPie will maintain its brand name and function as a standalone software unit, continuing to serve the entire graphic arts market and supporting current customers and business partners as well as Xerox.
