This is an exciting time for CrawfordTech! We have completed another record year of growth, and for the sixth consecutive year, we have been named to the Canadian Business PROFIT500 List of Fastest Growing Companies in Canada. We officially marked our 20th year in business on November 27 and have been celebrating it all year. More importantly we have launched two exciting new products which are highlighted in this issue of the Crawford Courier.

The most groundbreaking new announcement is Voiceye maker for Operations Express. This joint effort between CrawfordTech and the Asian Voiceye company has resulted in a simple way for organizations to facilitate their paper documents to be read by blind and vision challenged individuals using a smartphone. This can reduce or eliminate the need to create Braille, large print and e-text versions of documents, saving a lot of costs and hassle for everyone. This is a very cost effective way to be in compliance and embrace all of your customers.

Our PRO Inkjet Express has ignited interest in all corners of the market as print shops are scrambling to take advantage of the power of inkjet presses brought to market by print manufacturers all over the world. PRO Inkjet Express combines all of the software components needed to achieve fast ROI and fully take advantage of the capabilities of inkjet presses.

We have been in the forefront of the exciting new inkjet market revolution, and have helped many of our customers make the transition. At the Inkjet Summit earlier this year, one of our customers mentioned that they are able to get a new inkjet press up to full volume within 2 weeks of the time it is on the floor. How do they do this? In a word - preparation! We have included an article on the secrets to the successful purchase and implementation of inkjet presses in transactional print shops. It will help you understand just how they can achieve this.

We have included a very interesting and controversial piece on the importance of paper. You may or may not agree with it, but you will see that it raises good points to consider as you plan your customer communications strategy.

CrawfordTech sponsored an AIIM survey earlier this year which looked at a number of trends in the archiving market. We have included an article that summarizes the most surprising findings of the survey, that I am sure you will find interesting and informative.
