MEMPHIS, Tenn., - FedEx Corp. today announced that it was recognized with the "Most Innovative New Tech-Enabled Product" award by InformationWeek for new services at FedEx Office. FedEx Office Print & Go and the enhanced FedEx Office Print Online technologies provide convenient access to on-demand printing. The company ranked 13th on this year's InformationWeek 500-a list of the top U.S. technology innovators. The annual list was revealed last week at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference Gala Awards ceremony in Southern California.
InformationWeek cited FedEx's commitment to quality and a positive customer experience. FedEx has made the list every year since 1995.
"Being named in the top five percent of the Information Week 500 is a tremendous distinction because it recognizes the best in innovation, which is a core value at FedEx," said Rob Carter, CIO and executive vice president of Information Services at FedEx Corp. "We have long been known for our innovations in transportation, but this honor recognizes how we are using technology to transform printing solutions, too."
With these two industry-leading solutions, FedEx Office has established itself as the first national print retailer to provide both smartphone and cloud printing. Launched in January 2011, FedEx Office Print & Go allows customers to access and print documents directly from mobile devices and USB flash drives at retail locations nationwide. The next generation of FedEx Office Print Online, which was introduced in 2007, is an advanced and intuitive print management application that has dynamic previewing, archiving, reordering and tracking features as well as the ability to retrieve files from Google Docs.
