Tokyo, April 14, 2009

OKI Printing Solutions (brand name for OKI Data Corporation) today announced it has joined the SAP® Printer Vendor program as a gold-level member. OKI's customers will enjoy high-quality printing that is optimized for use with SAP systems.

SAP launched this program in collaboration with other printer manufacturers to optimize support for devices that operate within customers' SAP solution-based environments.

Customers using SAP applications in conjunction with OKI Printing Solutions' products will now have full access to functions such as stapling as part of the finishing process, image adjustment and print confirmation.

Additional benefits resulting from the SAP Printer Vendor program are as follows:

- Makes it easier for IT staff to locate and assign the correct device types since the device types are included in the standard SAP software, which also has a wizard for this purpose.

- Helps ensure that device types have been properly tested, and then validated by SAP to function as advertised.

Hitoshi Sekine, Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer of OKI Printing Solutions says: "We are delighted to join the SAP Printer Vendor program, through which we will offer support for print options in SAP business applications. This is one of the most important ERP programs in the world. Joining it allows us to reassure our customers that our firmware will be seamlessly integrated with SAP software. They will benefit from improvements in flexibility and efficiency as a result."

OKI Printing Solutions will drive innovation aimed at simplifying the user experience and printing process for users of SAP applications by developing device types for those products most suited to working in an SAP solution-based environment.
