Press release from the issuing company

40+-year-old operation successfully transitions to "integrated solutions provider"

Lexington, Kentucky USA -- WhatTheyThink announces the opportunity for industry professionals to benefit from a free educational Webinar. Assimilate Or Die: Real Life Transformation Stories will be led by WhatTheyThink Senior Analyst Richard Romano. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, December 12th, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST (-5 GMT and is sponsored by PODi.

No-charge registration is available by visiting WhatTheyThink.com and selecting the Webinars tab.

"For the past several years, we have been hearing that printing companies should change with the times and adopt new technologies to go 'beyond print,'" says Romano. "In this session, we'll hear from one company that did just that-and how they prospered as a result."

Romano will be joined by Paul Strack, President of CustomXM, a second-generation, 40+ year old printing operation that transformed itself to become a successful integrated solutions provider, taking advantage of emerging technologies to significantly increase new business in tough economic times. Mr. Strack will share the steps his company took in navigating that transition, detailing some ideas that worked, and some that didn't. He will talk about how being ahead of the curve can be messy business, but is the only way to move forward to future opportunities. You'll also learn that there are many pathways to change-but the first step is creating a culture and an atmosphere of change.

"WhatTheyThink is pleased to join PODi in bringing this important session to our audience," says Eric Vessels, President, WhatTheyThink. "This is a not-to-be-missed Webinar for savvy print providers who want and need to know how to take full advantage of cross-media trends."

Attendees will be able to ask questions live during the event. The presentation can be viewed and listened to using a standard Internet browser with audio streamed via computer or tablet.
