BÖWE BELL + HOWELL’s Connectivity Showcase to Display Largest Multi-vendor Online Connectivity Ever
Wheeling, IL—Aug. 15, 2007—As the world’s largest exhibition and conference for printing, finishing and packaging products, GRAPH EXPO 2007 will feature hundreds of vendors displaying their latest equipment and products. But only at BÖWE BELL + HOWELL’s booth will attendees see a unique Connectivity Showcase featuring what is expected to be the largest multi-vendor online connectivity ever displayed at a print tradeshow. This “live and connected” environment will feature Web-based tracking of vendors’ equipment on the show floor in real time, illustrating their open architecture and integration capabilities.
A leading provider of document management and postal solutions, BÖWE BELL + HOWELL will prominently occupy Booth No. 600, located just inside the main tradeshow entrance at GRAPH EXPO 2007. Taking the theme “Starts Here,” the booth will feature postal, sorting and scanning solutions that form the start of new experiences in innovative mailing solutions and new partnerships. This year’s event will take place Sept. 9 through Sept. 12 at McCormick Place South in Chicago.
Centrally located in the booth, the Connectivity Showcase will feature BÖWE BELL + HOWELL’s unique enterprise management software connected to many of the leading finishing, printing, sorting and converting suppliers exhibiting at the show. The showcase will provide a live demonstration of the integration between these products, giving attendees a true representation of how the equipment might operate in a production print or mail center. Some of the participating vendors include BCC Software, Duplo USA, Eastman Kodak, Lasermax Roll Systems, MegaSpirea International, Nipson, Paragon, RISO, Rollem International, Sefas Innovations, Solimar Systems, Taneum, Window Book and Xerox Corp.
“The BÖWE One software suite can provide a single performance-monitoring view across a multi-vendor environment,” said Mike Maselli, executive director, business management. “Attendees will be able to learn how connectivity to third-party software and hardware systems is enabled, and how a single monitoring tool can aggregate and normalize data from multiple sources.”
