Collaboration is the key to business success. The 2009 KODAK Executive Summit (KES) event set the stage for success by providing the perfect opportunity for industry experts, channel partners and Kodak executives to share ideas and develop strategies that will help to strengthen their customers' businesses.
KES brought together more than 300 representatives from Kodak's reseller and ISV partners, as well as industry analysts and experts in San Antonio for three days of presentations, educational sessions and networking. Kodak and subject matter experts engaged attendees in discussions on a wide range of topics, including the state of the enterprise content management (ECM) industry, best practices on driving sales, Internet lead generation, SharePoint adoption, market opportunities and trends, and many more. In addition, participants tested the latest KODAK Scanners and Software during demonstrations held throughout the event.
"This is a pivotal time for document management. The changes in the economy and the constant explosion of information create an atmosphere that forces organizations to work as efficiently as possible to stay competitive. Companies will be looking for value; value in the form of solutions that deliver efficiency, cost-savings, productivity and accessibility," said Dolores K. Kruchten, General Manager and Vice President, Business Solutions and Services, Eastman Kodak Company. "Collaboration is necessary to effectively educate the market, determine the need, develop it, deliver it, and service it. Kodak sees document imaging as part of an overall ECM solution, and each component we deliver, whether it is hardware or software or service, is a part of that solution. That viewpoint fosters ongoing collaboration with industry partners, and creates more opportunities for growth for both the industry and for our customers."
2008 was a year of opportunity and growth for Kodak's reseller partners, many of whom were honored for their successes during KES. The complete list of award winners is included on the attached fact sheet.
