DAYTON, Ohio--May 25, 2004-- Standard Register, a leading provider of information solutions, will be showcasing the latest version of its ExpeData(TM) Digital Pen and Paper solution, including uniquely patterned printing capabilities at the Anoto Functionality Conference 2004 in Ystad, Sweden on May 26-27. Additionally, Doug Patterson, Standard Register vice president, Digital Solutions, will be presenting a keynote address, "Carpe Data - Seize the Data." Anoto is a Swedish hi-tech company with unique solutions for transmission of handwritten text from paper to digital media and scanning of printed text. The conference will include more than 60 companies from around the world that use the Anoto-enabling technologies to build digital writing solutions. Standard Register's new ExpeData digital pen and paper technology offers a turnkey solution for digitized data capture that simplifies deployment and helps ensure success. At the heart of the solution is a uniquely patterned digital paper, based on Anoto's digital pattern, which Standard Register produces on digital-output devices. Standard Register meets and surpasses Anoto's printing Quality requirement (Anoto Offset Printing Requirement) and is generating uniquely patterned paper at the rated speeds. "Standard Register has achieved this level of proficiency for digitally printing variable pattern within their print facilities," says Pietro Parravicini, president/CEO, Anoto, Inc. "This is a significant step in making Anoto functionality a reality and will add unique capabilities to Standard Register's products and services." "We are finding that the digitally printed variable pattern document is the key factor to an effective digital pen and paper solution," says Patterson. "Our approach to digital writing requires no change in the way people use paper forms. It is simple, easy and natural, enabling rapid user adoption for customers migrating from traditional paper forms to digital forms." Standard Register has put together a channel partner program that makes it easy for any partner to convert an existing paper-based process to a digital pen and paper application using its ExpeData application. Customers in a wide variety of industries are investigating and using this application including government, logistics, sales and healthcare. Standard Register's new ExpeData suite of digital products and services streamlines workflow, helping eliminate the time and costs associated with data entry, mailing, scanning and indexing. It also helps companies establish greater accountability and control by providing an exact image of the handwritten document and a secure audit trail. Once in a digital format, the information can be made available to back-end systems such as CRM (customer relationship management) and ERP (enterprise resource planning). "We are focused on helping companies increase efficiency, reduce costs, enhance security and strengthen customer loyalty by effectively capturing, managing and using information in their business processes--whether in paper or digital form," said Dennis Rediker, Standard Register president and chief executive officer. "Our ExpeData solution is one more way Standard Register is improving the way business gets done." For more information on Standard Register's ExpeData digital solutions, visit www.expedata.net.
