OKI Data Americas' School Docu Tool Receives Winter "Pick" Award From Buyers
Laboratory LLC for Outstanding Vertical Market Solution: Education

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Jan. 31, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OKI Data Americas has
been recognized by Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI), receiving the analyst group's
Winter "Pick" award for its School Docu Tool solution in the category of
Outstanding Vertical Market Solution: Education. The solution was praised for
its ease of use, unique feature set and affordability, making it one of nine
document imaging software solutions selected as a "Pick" from among dozens
reviewed. School Docu Tool is a software application available as an embedded
solution within certain OKI multifunction printers (MFPs).

The School Docu Tool solution enables educators to prepare bubble sheet tests
with 15, 30, 60 or 100 questions, and an optional essay field. A master sheet
is printed for teachers to populate with the correct answers, which is then
used for grading tests through the School Docu Tool embedded application.
Completed tests are loaded into the automatic document feeder of one of the
versatile OKI MB700 Series monochrome MFPs which then scans and grades each
test quickly and accurately. The solution also provides reports to assist
teachers with analyzing test results by student, by classroom and by test
question. The large touch-screen panel of the OKI MB700 Series MFPs helps make
the process easy and efficient. Additionally, test results can be exported for
use in the school's student information system.

"OKI Data Americas is honored that School Docu Tool has received a Winter 2013
'Pick' award from Buyers Lab as an Outstanding Vertical Market Solution for
Education," said Carl Taylor, Director of Marketing for OKI Data Americas.
"OKI is dedicated to developing valuable tools to optimize the performance of
our customers' printing environments. This award underscores our commitment to
delivering cost-effective document output and management solutions to the
education market, and to serving our customers' unique and evolving needs
through printing innovation."

According to BLI, "OKI School Docu Tool delivers a 'just right' combination of
features, ease of use and affordability, helping school systems replace
dedicated OMR test systems and forms while retaining the bubble sheet
multiple-choice test format many teachers like. Most importantly, students can
benefit from the solution. Teachers will spend less time creating and grading
tests, which makes them more available after class."

BLI, the world's leading independent evaluator of document imaging hardware
and software, gives special recognition to the hardware and software products
that provided the most outstanding performances in the company's unique
evaluations. The coveted "Pick" awards are given twice a year for products and
solutions that rise above the competition in key areas such as value, feature
set, ease of use, ease of administration, hardware compatibility, software
integration, security and support.

history of leadership and innovation. Most of OKI Data's color printing
solutions feature Single Pass Color™ as well as proprietary digital LED and HD
Color technologies. These technologies allow OKI Data Americas to manufacture
