Process Innovation Awards winners announced

With the AIIM show right around the corner, it's time to present the 1998 Process Innovation Awards. While the official ceremony won't be held until May 11 in the Anaheim Hilton, here's a sneak peek at who came out on top. In case you're wondering, the winners ­ picked from a pool of more than 60 nominations ­ were selected based on process improvements that led to gains in at least one of the following areas: productivity, profitability, ability to adapt to market conditions, or competitive standing/market share. The panel of judges included: Steve Weissman and Paula Boyle of Kinetic Information (Waltham, MA); Priscilla Emery of AIIM International (Silver Spring, MD), Arthur Gingrande of IMERGE Consulting (Arlington, MA); Stowe Boyd of Modus Operandi (Reston, VA); Ray Edwards of Lighthouse Consulting (Kansas City, MO), and Addie Mattox of @doc (Pleasanton, CA).
