New Whitepaper Connects the Convergence of the Automated Document Factory and Multi-Channel Communications
The Manager’s Guide to ADF requirements, challenges & benefits in a multi-channel world
October 29, 2012, Toronto, ON – Crawford Technologies Inc. today released a new whitepaper that describes the requirements and functionality for Automated Document Factory (ADF) systems in today’s fast changing printing market. This document is designed to provide print and mail providers with the an understanding of what capabilities an ADF should be providing for them.
The concept of an Automated Document Factory isn’t new to the transactional print and mail industry; an ADF as originally conceived, however, has significantly changed. Today, print and mail providers must react to their customers’ needs for multi-channel communication delivery and preference management, which requires the need for a more sophisticated ADF solution. The new paper, entitled The Manager’s Guide to ADF Systems in the Multi-Channel Era, explores the keys to success in today’s multi-channel environment and the must have tools that should be a part an ADF solution.
“We are excited to announce the latest and most comprehensive in our continued efforts to bring the most valuable information to the print and mail industry,” said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies.
“On the heels of our six new product announcements last month, this new white paper represents a significant update to the ADF concept, which encompasses the need for an automated production workflow and the need to create, manage and distribute content through a multi-channel communication strategy that matches the preferences of all of the recipients.”
Interested people can discover these trends and new requirements that are facing the print and mail industry, and learn how an advanced ADF system can keep your production environment running smoothly and address the following areas:
- Multi-channel communication strategies
- Cost containment
- Integrity and privacy legislation
- Digital delivery services
- Print suppression
- Environmental concerns
- Uncertain postal service futures
This new white paper is written for print and mail providers who are looking at their current ADF tool sets and may need to close the gap between their current capabilities and the functionality they need to deliver to their customers today and in the future.
