|Merrill Corp. receiving the 2011 Technology Innovation of the Year Award|
Last week, Merrill Corp. had the honor of receiving the 2011 Technology Innovation of the Year Award at the Xplor Conference. Before we attended, we had written a short post about the announcement of Merrill receiving the award. However, we would be remiss if we didn't follow-up to share how impressive the entire conference was.
Some of you who follow the Merrill Corp. Twitter page (@merrillconnect) read some real-time thoughts and updates from the event in general. Obviously, the highlight was the award luncheon where we received the award with our partner InfoPrint, but just as enjoyable and fruitful was the ability to network and catch up with colleagues in the industry that we normally don't get to meet with face-to-face.
Additionally, the amount of education that was available in both the general and breakout sessions was excellent. Personally, I participated in a panel discussing the future of Automated Document Factories (ADF) and its links to CRM tools and other electronic media, but also attended others, including discussions of Meware, which could be the next generation of mobile techonogy; and the evolution of Hybrid Cloud Computing which could have a direct link to the regulatory compliance issues that the healthcare industry is dealing with..
Finally, Tampa offered a great atmosphere for the conference and was a great place to visit (especially with the weather we have had up north). Thank you to everyone who help make this award possible, and next time you visit the Merrill Corp. offices, be sure to check out our plaque.
