Celebrating its 100-year anniversary this year, Standard Register has a heritage of innovation. In recent years, the company has transformed its business model and value proposition, and is creating new customer value through the application of technology solutions for marketing, customer communications and product labeling for its business customers. Similarly in healthcare, it is leveraging technology to manage critical communications across the continuum of care, engaging both providers and patients to improve patient care and safety. In addition to continued innovation within its solutions portfolio, Standard Register has increasingly focused its technology investments to drive improved production quality and customer experience. “The foundation for our next generation solutions require we continue to adopt and deliver best-in-class software, secure information and output delivery, as well as digital, mobile and tablet mediums for our customers’ critical communications,” said Joanne Cummins, chief information officer of Standard Register. “Our innovation stems from the strategic needs of our customers and we will continue to develop new technology-based solutions that help companies engage their customers in a meaningful and consistent way to drive measurable business results.” In the past 12 months, the company has extended its industry-leading SMARTworks ® platform to include tablet-based marketing services solutions, digital direct marketing capabilities, and enhanced marketing analytics. Standard Register also launched a groundbreaking new compliance solution for the Managed Care market – MarcomNAVIGATOR ™ – and has created new solutions for interactive product labeling. The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings, spotlighting the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
