Crawford Technologies to be Honored for Second Consecutive Year by Xplor International

‘2015 Xplor Application of the Year’ award presented to CrawfordTech and City of Glendale for Riptide® Solution


April 9, 2015, Toronto, ON – Crawford Technologies will be honored for the second consecutive year – and fifth time overall – by Xplor International after receiving the ‘2015 Xplor Application of the Year’ award alongside the City of Glendale for its Riptide® solution. Riptide is an innovative output management platform that significantly extends ECM functionality to improve knowledge worker productivity and increase business process effectiveness.

Utilizing Crawford’s Riptide product, the City of Glendale was able to automate the distribution and output management of case files stored in their repository. In the words of the Glendale city government project manager, “The Riptide solution made all the difference, changing ‘days and hours’ of work into ‘minutes and seconds’ as the tasks of copying, collation, and hand stamping were eliminated. One of the key results was that staff was able to be reallocated to more productive tasks.”

“We are proud to receive this award and see it as a testament to the value our solutions bring to organizations,” said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies. “Riptide truly extends the capabilities of today’s ECM systems allowing organizations to get more value from the documents they have stored in their repositories.”

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 of Xplor International.

“It’s exciting to see a government organization such as the City of Glendale taking a leadership role in implementing new technology to streamline their operations,” said Skip Henk, EDP, President and CEO of Xplor International. “This application exemplifies how the solutions from our vendors can provide game-changing benefits to organizations.”
