Paul Garner talks about the Emerge conference

Published on May 24, 2011

Consolidated Graphics hosts the Emerge conference every year. It is a place where leaders in the print industry can get together and discuss the advances in technology. Paul Garner, Chief Technology Officer at Consolidated Graphics highlights some of the events at Emerge

Hi, I’m Paul Garner, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer with Consolidated Graphics.

Emerge is a conference where we bring industry partners, industry partners and customers together to talk about the industry, talk about technology advances that are occurring within the industry.  It’s certainly an opportunity for consolidated to enter into that discussions and be able to talk about advances that we’re specifically making, but more importantly, it’s about bringing our customers and industry partners and vendors together to help promote the print industry moving forward. 

Well for me, I’m the Chief Technology Officer and I run a group called the Technology Services and Solutions Group with Consolidated Graphics. And at Emerge this year, we’re announcing our new Work Smart Suite, which is a suite of products, Streamline, Connect, and Organize that are based on new cloud computing technology that we’ve developed at Consolidated Graphics.

Our Streamline product is an ordering system which allows our customers to order products from all of our operating companies, be it static product, versionable or variable product.  Connect is our new cross-media platform and organizes our digital asset management platform. At the same time, we’re announcing the opening of our new data center in Houston, which is a significant investment in technology, all based on computing.  So the data center is the foundation and the applications that we’re announcing is the realization of the cloud computing technology that we’ve developed. Yeah, we’re expecting over 700 customers to attend this year’s event and we’re very excited about that number is growing each year.
