Bell and Howell to Host “Plain Paper Pioneers” Session at GRAPH EXPO

Free Lunch and Learn Panel Session Sept. 27 will Feature Executives from AccuDoc, Broadridge Financial Solutions and Valpak

Orlando, Fla., Sept. 15, 2016 – As many mail-production facilities shift to plain-paper-factory operations, they hope to reap such benefits as reduced inventory and storage costs, time savings, more impactful marketing, and enhanced personalization options. Plain paper factories are mail operations that rely on plain white paper rather than pre-printed shells, forms and envelopes. To help those making or considering the switch, Bell and Howell is pleased to present a free Lunch and Learn session titled “Real-World Lessons from the Plain Paper Pioneers” at GRAPH EXPO on Tuesday, Sept. 27, from noon to 1 p.m. in Room N320A of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

Attendees will be able to hear from an expert panel of executives who have successfully converted some or all of their operations to plain paper factories, and are willing to share their successes and missteps. The panel will feature the following experts:

The panel will address such topics as the rationale for switching, potential savings, impact on the customer experience, and what is involved in migrating to a plain paper factory. No advance registration is required, and complimentary lunch will be provided to the first 50 attendees.

In addition to sponsoring the panel session, visitors to Bell and Howell’s exhibit space at booth 849 can find out more about the company’s cutting-edge systems and service solutions:

  • High-performance mail inserting and finishing solutions that are guided by factory intelligence and increase capacity while lowering costs

  • Access to a single managed maintenance provider that helps reduce costs and risk while improving service uptime for their entire production operation
