Eclipse Corporation Joins Xplor International in Support of Homeless Veterans

Lutz, FL – July 11, 2017 – Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today announced that Eclipse Corporation has joined Xplor International in helping to raise funds for homeless veterans.

Tweet: @Xplor_Int and @EclipseDoc team up to help homeless veterans at @GetVetsHoused. $5 per completed survey from Xplor and Eclipse will match!

Xplor International released two surveys asking its members and the industry to provide input to assist them in determining future programming, the first, released June 15th, the second July 11th. In return for each completed survey, Xplor offered to donate $5.00 USD to Veterans Matter, a non-profit organization founded by former Xplor Chairman Ken Leslie whose mission is to house veterans and their families.

As a result of the request, Eclipse Corporation, an Xplor member and supporter, offered to match the funds donated by Xplor.

“After reviewing this with our team, Eclipse thinks this is a great cause” says Steve Luke, CEO of Eclipse Corporation.  “Eclipse will match dollar for dollar what Xplor contributes to Veterans Matter.”

Since Ken founded Veterans Matter, they have housed 1601 individual veterans and 2432 veterans with their families, which include 606 veterans’ children. For more information on Veterans Matter, visit: https://veteransmatter.org/.

“Each survey, by design, takes less than 3 minutes to fill out and is a great way to help our homeless veterans and their families while providing Xplor valuable information on future programming,” says Skip Henk, EDP, Xplor’s President and CEO.  “I also do want to thank Steve Luke and the team at Eclipse for joining in our efforts to support our homeless veterans and their families.”

If your company is interested in joining Eclipse to support Veterans Matter, please contact Skip Henk at skip@xplor.org or at 813.949.6170.

Xplor to host Keynote breakfast Panel at Print 17

Complimentary registration is now open for the event titled
Exploring the Role of Print in Today’s Customer Journey

Lutz, FL— June 21, 2017: Xplor International today announced that they will once again host a complimentary keynote breakfast panel during the Print 17 event, September 10 – September 14, 2017 at McCormick Place, Chicago. Additionally, the event is now open for registration. Attendees can register for the complimentary breakfast panel here: http://www.cvent.com/d/j5qw5s.

The recent enterprise focus on improving customer experience is strongly tied to reviewing and improving the customer journey. Understanding—and mapping—a customer journey can be as much an art as it is a science. Since that journey now spans many media types, the role of print can get lost in the mix.  A timely communication by mail can secure a new customer, while a poorly-executed print campaign can also spell disaster.

The breakfast keynote session, moderated by Matt Swain of Keypoint Intelligence – InfoTrends, is titled “Exploring the Role of Print in Today’s Customer Journey” and will focus on the latest market trends, best practices, and the role of print in today’s customer journey. End user panelists will share their insights during the event that boasts a lively discussion.

This sponsored breakfast session is presented at no charge, thanks to sponsors Canon Solutions America, Compart North America, and Pitney Bowes. Space will again be limited to the first 200 people who register, so register today as this session has reached capacity each year.

When:  September 12, 2017
Where: McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, Room S105abc (Right by Bus Drop Off)
Time: 7:30 AM-10:00 AM
Registration Fee: Complimentary (Registration Required here: http://www.cvent.com/d/j5qw5s)

Questions and requests for additional information can be directed to Xplor Headquarters via phone at +1-813-949-6170 or via email at info@xplor.org. One additional sponsorship opportunity remains open for the event. For more information on becoming a sponsor, please contact Deborah Green, Director of Sales, at +1-770-444-3845 or deborahgreen@xplor.org.
