Transforming Output Management into Customer Communications Management
Jeroen Huinink, Aia Software
Analysts and industry researchers have been struggling with a good name for our industry. It has had a lot of names in the past: Variable Data Printing, Document Output Management and most recently Customer Communications Management. What does this mean for our industry and for our partners and customers?
Document Output Management is often seen as an extra cost and a necessary evil. However, the value and necessity of documents is increasing and rightly will become Customer Communications Management. Organizations can optimize customer communications by combining all output streams and producing multi-channel transactions.
Learn why output management must become business managed instead of an IT or mailroom process. By capturing, manipulating and managing output streams and channels based on information in CRM, more expensive changes to legacy systems can be avoided without a sacrifice of functionality and solutions exist in the market place that can integrate CRM and output management.
