“I thought it was a very successful Duo meeting. Attendance was up, and we had 16 first-time attendees. Both guest speakers, Tom and Dov, were well received. Specifically, I was excited to hear that Dalim Software intends to use the Adobe(r) PDF Print Engine in their workflow applications,” remarks Brent Kantola. “While I personally want to deliver a tremendous ‘thank you’ to Lee Edberg of Brown Printing who, as outgoing president, did a great job to refocus our meetings, I am also looking forward to working with Steven White. For future meetings, I foresee more targeted technology sessions that address very specific user needs. For example, new users have different requirements than experienced users. Larger, multi-site printers have different issues than smaller printers. I would like to identify these groups, break out into smaller sessions, and participate in very beneficial dialogs.”
“I thought this year’s event was very interesting and relevant from our company’s point of view. Many of the areas of product development where Dalim Software is focused-for example, utilization of XMP and JDF and integration into other systems-directly relate to issues we’re trying to resolve or improve. And, Tom Carroll, the keynote speaker, was very inspiring. At first, when I looked at the agenda, I was wondering why an HR professional was addressing our group. What could he contribute? However, everyone thought he had a great deal of useful insights to help us gain consensus in our organizations for new technology projects,” comments Steve White. “As Vice President, I look forward to the challenges of making the US DUO meeting even more constructive next year. In particular, I would like to see more structure to the technology discussions. Saying that, I have to add that at this session, the five representatives from Vertis each received a year’s worth of new ideas to implement going forward.”
