Brian Platte Lifetime Achievement and Xplorer of the Year Awards Presented at Xploration® 18

Lutz, FL — April 17, 2018: Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, today named the recipients of the 2018 Brian Platte Lifetime Achievement and Xplorer of the Year Awards. These awards were presented at Xplor’s Annual Conference, Xploration 18, on Tuesday, April 17th during the awards ceremony.

Tweet this: Brian Platte Lifetime Achievement and Xplorer of the Year Award Recipients Recognized at Xploration® 18 #Xplor18 #Awards http://bit.ly/2HnpF0R

The Brian Platte Lifetime Achievement Award was established in 2007 and is given to an individual, or individuals, whose efforts and contributions have significantly changed the course and development of the digital document industry. This award is open to Xplor International members as well as non-members.

This year, two Brian Platte Lifetime Achievement Awards were presented.

The first recipient is Basit Hamid, founder of Elixir Technologies. Basit is an innovator in customer communications and has transformed the lives of young professionals while spear-heading humanitarian initiatives around the globe.

As a member of Intran’s development team, he helped design the company’s impressive font and image editing system, which culminated in the release of MetaForm, the first commercial WYSIWYG document composition solution. In 1984, Mr. Hamid and his business partner, Eric Searle, left Intran to found Elixir, launching ElixiForms, the first WYSIWYG forms system on a standard PC, in 1987.

For the past fifteen years, Elixir has partnered with a major medical hospital in Pakistan to administer the TELMEDPAK project. This initiative brings medical help to remote areas of Pakistan affected by the Afghan war by conducting seminars for healthcare professionals and offering concept lectures at medical conferences and institutions.

The second honoree for the Brian Platte Lifetime Achievement Award is Bob Gullikson.

Bob began his journey in early 1990’s running a transactional print operation. He was challenged to develop a plan for the future and help engineer new technology that would give his company a competitive advantage and drive revenue.  The initial concept his team developed included many presentation modes that didn’t exist at that time and he had to make believers out of skeptical executives in order to garner support for his vision which not only included printing on paper, but also the electronic delivery of documents.

The system simplified the design process to minimize Cobol hard coding and shorten the development time for new documents and changes.  Once approved, FDR’s Enterprise Presentation platform was designed and implemented in 18 months.

In addition to Bob’s professional achievements, he has been a consistent supporter and volunteer to community organizations and charities.  Bob is an honorably discharged U.S. Air Force veteran who served during the Vietnam War.  He was chosen to serve on Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey’s Military Academy Nomination Committee and participated for several years.

The Xplorer of the Year honors individuals or companies that have demonstrated significant service to the association, dedication to the Xplor mission, and recent notable achievement promoting the interest of the electronic document systems and customer communications industry.

This year’s Xplorer of the year is Scott Draeger, M-EDP.  Mr. Draeger served on the International Board of Directors, retiring two years ago. He is the number one supporter of industry certification and is responsible for the certification of over 35 EDP’s and 150 EDA’s through the EDP Challenge, which Quadient has supported for the last four years.

Scott’s out of the box approach has incubated the idea of the Xplor University Design Competition as well as many other changes to the association in response to an ever-evolving industry.

“I’d like to congratulate Basit, Bob and Scott for their achievements as they are well deserved.” says Skip Henk, EDP, President/CEO of Xplor International. “Our industry as a whole, and the world around us, are better places due to each of their efforts.”

Other Xplor annual awards, recognized and announced at Xploration® 18, include:

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. This award is open to members and non-members alike.

Xplor will award two honorable mentions in addition to the 2018 winner.

  • The winner of the 2018 Xplor Application of the Year is UNUM / Crawford Technologies for their innovative approach in consolidating several data centers, automating over 2000 applications, and creating a process for ensuring efficiency and document integrity when outsourcing. The solution utilized Crawford’s QA in the Cloud and Operations Express products and demonstrated a significant collaborative effort between both companies.
  • An Honorable Mention is being awarded Volusia County Schools / RICOH USA, Inc. for their WebCRD with QDirect implementation that automated workflows and increased time and efficiency, allowing Volusia to take on work from local governments and non-profits to help drive revenue.
  • A second Honorable Mention is being awarded to Broadridge Customer Communications and Compart, NA for their patent pending “Rapid OnBoarding.” This application significantly reduces the time-consuming steps of producing a factory-ready file and document, all from a proprietary point-and-click user interface.

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 multiple honorable mentions, in addition to the winner of the award, due to the large number of submissions.

  • The winner of the 2018 Xplor Technology of the Year is being awarded to Crawford Technologies for their Auto Tagger for Accessibility product. Auto Tagger allows all types of PDF files to be automatically tagged and converted to Accessible PDF (WCAG 2.0 and PDF U/A) or Accessible HTML5.  Auto tagging saves time and opens the door to making all electronic documents equally accessible to any and all users.
  • An Honorable Mention for Technology of the Year is being awarded to Solimar Systems for their SOLitrack 2.0 with Batching and Mobile Modules. Solimar’s SOLitrack™ product, is a database-centric output management system that uses a PC client view interface to control and track print files on desktops or allows them to be viewed through a web-based interface on mobile devices with SOLitrack Mobile. The Batching Module creates rolling-queues based on mailpiece aggregations that dynamically schedules jobs.
  • An additional Honorable Mention for the Xplor Technology of the Year award is being presented to Racami for their Alchem-e CCM Platform. The platform ties together all other software and hardware within a company to form a master system that forces standards in companies necessary for automation, quality control, and speed to market. The platform reduces IT costs and has many features that assist employees so they are more informed, make better decisions, and run the business more efficiently.
  • An additional Honorable Mention for the Xplor Technology of the Year award is being presented to Indellient for their flagship product BlueRelay. BlueRelay offers a powerful suite of workflow and document management tools that simplifies document approval processes and improves quality and compliance of customer communications. The efficiencies gained at one of Indellient’s clients allowed them to experience “an increase of over 300% in workload without increase to headcount.”

“Once again, the awards committee had a tough time selecting winners from the volume of submissions we received,” said Skip Henk, EDP, President and CEO of Xplor International. “I’d like to thank all who submitted and congratulate our winners and honorable mentions.”
