ST. PAUL, MN—March 22, 2011—Merrill Corp. has been named the recipient of the Technology Innovation of the Year Award by Xplor International, a worldwide, not-for-profit professional association that recognizes document technology solutions. Merrill was nominated for its record-, page- and piece-level tracking and compliance-driven production environment that enables Merrill’s healthcare clients to effectively communicate with their members.

The prestigious Technology Innovation of the Year Award honors an organization that has conceived and developed an original concept leading to a significant advancement in the document technology industry. Merrill Corp. and its vendor, InfoPrint Solutions, were honored for their sophisticated production platform that produces highly personalized communications within an in-line production method, while delivering a demonstrated record of compliance adherence for highly regulated industries.
