InfoTrends/CAP Ventures Partners with ALL Associates Group

Press release from the issuing company

WEYMOUTH, Mass.--April 18, 2005-- Imagine getting a highly reasoned estimate of your company's entire enterprise-wide document expense in hours rather than months. Imagine comparing your figures against those of your major competitors. Through InfoTrends/CAP Ventures' highly innovative Predictive Modeling Services and ALL Associates Group's robust statistical techniques you now can. InfoTrends/CAP Ventures has been working with major corporations over the last 10 years, helping them solve their document issues. Today, InfoTrends/CAP Ventures announced the expansion of its enterprise document assessment capabilities through an exclusive partnership with ALL Associates Group. The partnership gives InfoTrends/CAP Ventures license to ALL Associates' Enterprise Document Assessment Methodology - EDAM(R). Organizations are continually looking for new ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Many organizations struggle to understand and quantify their true enterprise-wide document lifecycle costs. "We are responding to the needs of the marketplace," commented Charles A. Pesko, Managing Director at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. "Through our partnership with ALL Associates Group, we are now able to offer an expanded portfolio of services to corporations that deliver a rapid, cost-effective, and objective view of their overall enterprise document costs." EDAM is the result of a decade of work on document-centric statistical analysis and modeling. It is an internationally-recognized and proven methodology that is fast becoming the defacto standard for predictive document assessments and analysis. EDAM goes beyond the traditionally narrow view of visible hard costs and quantifies the total burdened expense of the entire document lifecycle. The process quantifies the base costs, which include equipment, consumables, and service. It then examines the less tangible costs such as associated IS support and infrastructure, administration, procurement, document distribution, and management. "By utilizing the EDAM model and pairing it with the industry expertise of InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, corporations can now gain the insight and decision support necessary to develop a cohesive enterprise document strategy, which encompasses their office, production, and outside commercial printing," commented Jim Hurst, Chairman of ALL Associates Group. Charlie Corr, Group Director at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, stated that, "The combined value of a predictive model, our data on total market output, and our understanding of technologies and methodologies to achieve super-efficiency not only make this offering unique, but promises to provide quicker results with higher net present value to our clients."
