Double Digit Savings? Possible with Archive Considerations
You May Be Ignoring  (Salon F)

When it comes to print and mail operations, Xplorers have a good idea of what they are looking for or the information they need. Archive management can be critical to ongoing customer support, regulatory compliance and disaster recovery.

Do you use a stand alone archive system or an enterprise ECM? What about native print stream storage versus archive formats like PDF/A and PDF/UA? At what point in your workflow should you snapshot your archive data? What retention rules do you need? Do they vary by document? Join this session for a look at the possibilities for archive management for print and mail providers, and the significant savings you can achieve.

Attendee Takeaways:
1. Areas you are overlooking with your archive storage and retrieval (or outputting from ECM) that have big impact on your organization.
2. Figure out what your requirements are and how you should approach assessing your options to maximize your ROI.
