Xplor to Present Lounge & Learn Session at ISA International Sign Expo 2019

Pat McGrew, M-EDP, of Keypoint Intelligence/InfoTrends to Deliver Session on Show Floor

Lutz, FL — February 26, 2019: Xplor International today announced that Pat McGrew, M-EDP, will deliver a Lounge & Learn session on the ISA International Sign Expo 2019 show floor on Wednesday, April 24th from 3:15 to 3:45pm. The title of the session is “The View from Xplor: The Converging Trends of Two Print User Communities.”

As much as the printing industries are segmented by technologies and user intent, today’s print shop is likely to be producing documents, commercial assignments, and wide format work under one roof or in partnership with like-minded partners. The convergence in the printing world means that all parties need to learn a bit more about the other areas to expand and partner successfully. In this talk, Pat will look at where the hot spots are in digital printing, where the crossover opportunities are, and offer some ideas on how to go after them.

“Pat is a recognized authority on all aspects of print, whether commercial, digital, wide format or transactional,” says Skip Henk, EDP, President/CEO of Xplor International. “Her broad background and years of experience in the industry make her the perfect person to speak about our converging worlds and particularly how we can learn from each other and create opportunities.”

Xplor Announces 2019 Technology and Application of the Year Award Winners

Recipients to be recognized at XPLOR19 in Las Vegas on April 23rd

Lutz, FL — February 20, 2019 – Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today announced the recipients of its 2019 Technology and Application of the Year Awards. The awards will be presented at a ceremony Tuesday, April 23, during the XPLOR19 event at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Tweet this: @rrdonnelley has won the #XPLOR19 Application of the Year Award and @Quadient has won the Technology of the Year Award! Honorable Mentions include: @EclipseDoc @TECMAILING @directmail20 A BIG Congratulations to all!! https://bit.ly/2GBMPTz

Application of the Year Award:

The Application of the Year Award is presented to an individual, a company or an organization to recognize outstanding achievement in the imaginative application of current technology and/or unique implementation of existing document and communication systems.

Xplor will award two honorable mentions in addition to the 2019 winner.

The winner of the 2019 Xplor Application of the Year is the RRD / Hosted Customer Communications Management On-Demand Service, an integrated, real-time, communications delivery system that leverages a single platform to manage all composition, design templates, business rules, and static/variable content. In turn, clients are reporting significant savings in duplicate software and hardware costs with additional soft dollar savings from reducing the staffing resources needed to maintain their current templates and business rules.

An Honorable Mention is being awarded to Legal & General America / Eclipse Corporation who consolidated datastreams, implemented multi-channel print and digital document delivery, and added customer engagement capabilities and centralized document management. The result of their DocOrigin implementation included an 80% reduction in development and processing time as well as 60% lower document maintenance costs. A total ROI was also achieved in less than 12 months.

A second Honorable Mention is being awarded to Santander Corporate Banking / Quadient for their implementation of Digital Customer Onboarding which greatly improved the bank’s customer experience and satisfaction, creating a monetary savings of almost £2 million (2.58 million USD) was reported.

Technology of the Year Award:

The Technology of the Year Award honors an individual, company or organization that has conceived and developed an original concept leading to a significant advancement in the industry.  This can be a new program, product, or technology that notably enhances the capabilities of document and communication systems.

Like the Application of the Year award, Xplor will present two honorable mentions, in addition to the winner of the award.

The winner of the 2019 Xplor Technology of the Year is being awarded to Quadient for their Omnichannel Coordination. Omnichannel Coordination breaks through the barriers of managing the distribution of regulated, as well as promotional documents, across the entire range of delivery channels. Each installation replaces several single-channel document delivery systems with a single system that coordinates the delivery of documents across the entire suite of communication channels.

An Honorable Mention is being awarded to DirectMail2.0. DirectMail2.0 is a direct mail technology/platform that tracks, enhances and reports ROI of direct mail. It provides for a 30-50% lift in the ROI of standard direct-mail using 7 digital technologies in conjunction with direct mail.

A second Honorable Mention is being awarded to TEC Mailing Solutions for their TEC’s Web Services API. TEC’s Web Services API allows the user to move data quality functionality to the submission stage which allows integrated CASS and National Change of Address to provide greater insight to potential conflicts with address quality and insights regarding potential return mail issues. It is the first (and currently only) cloud-based solution to be supported by the USPS for full-service mail.

“Our judges were impressed with the quality of the submissions making it difficult to select three award recipients in each category,” said Skip Henk, EDP, President and CEO of Xplor International. “I would like to congratulate all of our 2019 award recipients as thank all of those who took the time to apply for an award.”

Xplor International will also be announcing the recipients of additional awards at XPLOR19 on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 during the awards ceremony.

Xplor International to Co-Locate with ISA International Sign Expo 2019

Two Organizations Expand Their Event Relationship

LUTZ, FL – November 29, 2018 – XPLOR19 and ISA International Sign Expo 2019 will co-locate in Las Vegas, bringing together the worldwide electronic document systems industry with the sign, graphics and visual communications industry. This marks the first time in 12 years that Xplor has been on the West Coast.

Xplor International and ISA have partnered for the past few years in educational sessions to help their members see where the two industries intersect. But 2019 will mark the first time that the two have co-located their complete events.

Both will be held in April at Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. XPLOR19 will be April 23-25 and the ISA Sign Expo will be April 24-26, with a pre-conference day on April 23.

“We have been excited to work with Xplor these last few years, and look forward to deepening our relationship in 2019,” said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. “It is clear that there is overlap from both an attendee and exhibitor standpoint, so the co-location makes it easier and more beneficial for all. More importantly, though, this provides an opportunity for each of our respective attendees to explore where synergies exist.”

Xplor’s conference and vendor forum brings together end users, analysts, consultants and industry experts who share the best practices and trends in customer communications and digital documents. XPLOR19’s unique single-ballroom configuration is designed to maximize exposure to conference attendees and drive booth traffic. The XPLOR19 vendor forum is limited to 40 exhibitors. ISA International Sign Expo typically features more than 600 exhibitors and 20,000 attendees representing the breadth of the sign, graphics and visual communications industry.

“The overall excitement about this event has been overwhelming,” said Skip Henk, Xplor International’s president and CEO. “There is a lot of technology and information at the ISA Sign Expo that will be of interest to our members and vice versa. Bringing XPLOR19 and ISA International Sign Expo 2019 to one location will increase the likelihood that sign companies, printers, in-plant executives and end users will need to leave the office only once to attend a show that has it all.”
