Executive: Unsquaring the Wheel. As a business, you have two things you can control: revenue and cost. In order to be truly transformed, you must find a way to double revenue while also doubling your average profit. In a survey of service providers, just 6% were able to successfully transform themselves on their own. The Unsquaring the Wheel evaluation and process breaks down your transformation opportunity into three disciplines, each with three vectors to give you a comprehensive overview of your current status. The keynote presentation will feature an overview of the project and serve as a primer for a working session during Information Exchange where Mr. Bondy will explore each of the three segments of the wheel in more detail.
Technical: Managing Disruption. What happens when your staff begins to turnover and customers demand new and more complicated mailings? This technical track session will delve into managing these major impacts on the business. Attendees will outline the department/business’ desired outcomes. Then, with the guidance of BCC Software’s Professional Service and Product Management leadership, better understand how BCC Mail Manager can help achieve that flow, setting the stage for operational improvement.

Executive: Preparing for the Next Generation of Customers and Employees.

Building off Mr. Bondy’s Tuesday session, you will learn how to talk about the importance of personalization and multichannel marketing to millennials, and how to monetize a “total impact” campaign.
Technical: Planning for Tomorrow. In this session, we’ll examine important ways the production side of the business can streamline costs and maximize workflows. How much operational improvement can you drive with BCC Mail Manager? Find out!
