DocuWorld 2008 – Beyond Boundaries
The Las Vegas Hilton was chosen for DocuWorld, the annual Authorized DocuWare Partner meeting. DocuWare resellers from North, Central and South America were in attendance. Agenda items included speakers John Mancini, President of the AIIM Association, presenting “Why Does This Seem to be so Hard?” and Darrell Amy, President of Dealer Marketing Systems, speaking about maximizing profits in solutions transactions, as well as Kevin Diday of Kodak. Other speakers included Authorized DocuWare Partners, Neil O’Mahoney, Document Imaging Manager at Toshiba Business Solutions – TX/NM, located in San Antonio, TX, and Giles Scott, President of Scott Technology Group, located in Rohnert Park, CA.
DocuWare Partners had access to alliance vendors ABBYY, AnyDoc, Business Technology Association (BTA), Böwe Bell & Howell, Canon, Datacap, Dealer Marketing Systems, eCopy, Fujitsu, InfoTrends, Integrated Data Services, J & H Office Equipment, Kodak, Kofax, Panasonic and PrintFleet.
Prior to the DocuWorld event, the DocuWare Diamond Club Advisory Board (which is comprised of the top 10% of DocuWare’s resellers from each of the Americas) took place on Monday, February 18, also at the Hilton. A celebratory dinner followed at Trader Vic’s.
Directly following the event, Partners were able to recertify their DocuWare authorized reseller status by participating in two days of training.
Thomas Schneck, President of DocuWare AG (the parent company of DocuWare Corporation), was featured in the Document Management Power Hour Session during ITEX 2008, presenting his topic: “So, You’ve Selected a Document Management Solutions Partner. What’s Next?”
DocuWare exhibited during the show, demonstrating its latest version of document management software, version 5.1a. DocuWare’s booth was featured as a “Technology Hotspot,” as well as a stop on the “Technology Tour,” both of which were designed to drive groups of event attendees to vendors’ booths. They are part of an elite group of vendors whose technology/internet-based products gave attendees the resources to increase profits, continue to grow core business and branch out vertically into new markets.
In addition to exhibiting, Greg Schloemer, President of DocuWare Corporation also hosted an Owner’s Meeting at ITEX. Business owners had the opportunity to learn how DocuWare can help them transition from selling hardware to selling solutions by hearing about DocuWare’s go-to-market strategy, proven business model and structured tools.
“Our DocuWorld event enables Authorized DocuWare Partners to learn first-hand what is new with DocuWare as a company, allowing them to remain aware of the direction that DocuWare is heading,” Schloemer said. “Our Partners were able to network with peers and explore additional DocuWare possibilities with our alliance sponsors as well. Having the event in conjunction with ITEX was a very good experience – the DocuWorld event exceeded our expectations with record attendance and sponsors.”
