Register and tune in on Sept. 5 for an Eclipse-hosted Xplor Webinar. Two companies in contrasting industries with varied interests, McKesson Medical-Surgical and Mele Printing, share case studies illustrating how they use one solution that meets their diverse needs.
What seems like a job for multiple document solutions, comes down to one; DocOrigin has proven itself in banking, commercial printing, government, healthcare, insurance, logistics, manufacturing, telco. The #6 ranked Fortune 500 McKesson Medical-Surgical needed a more streamlined product to cut down on production times and a more integrated approach for their print and mail solutions. Mele Printing, a commercial print service provider, needed one solution that could effectively drive their state-of-the-art Pitney Bowes continuous roll-fed printers at rated speed, could meet the needs of their varied clients and have cost-effective results. See how this can all be done with one dynamic solution for your company. Register here today!

A Lesson on Too Long Implementation Times (7 Years)
We recently came across an article that illustrates perfectly the problems many companies face when replacing their forms software. While this article focuses on a scenario replacing ERP systems there is a lesson to be learned in too long implementation times in our industry as well.
Andrea Cravero, Senior Director for Sales Consulting for ERP, Enterprise Performance Management and Supply Chain solutions at Oracle, took note of the situation at Lidl and shared his two cents. Lidl is cancelling their SAP introduction after already spending 500M Euro and wasting seven years. Cravero says, “The Lidl project was an ambitious transformation project, expectations were correspondingly high (reducing effort for master data maintenance, real time key figures and forecast analysis, etc). All this is now nothing…” He goes on to point out lessons learned from this failure. #1 being the most obvious and important, ERP implementation cannot last seven years.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way for forms software migration. Eclipse’s history and expertise have resulted in a comprehensive set of migration tools and strategies aimed at providing replacement technology for your implementation. Most simple forms templates can be migrated in seconds and be 95 to 100% complete. You can read more about how we can simplify your migration here or contact us for more information.
