INTERSECT 2012 Delivers For The Newspaper Industry

RouteSmart’s premier learning and collaboration event returns to Annapolis with new technology for newspaper deliver

Columbia, MD (3/26/12) — In today’s digital age, newspaper publishers and distributors face unique challenges, from managing operations costs to customer service for both regular delivery and Total Market Coverage. Advertisers and subscribers rely on these organizations to get newspapers to the door and into the hands of readers. With hundreds of carriers delivering to tens of thousands of subscribers, efficient planning and management of home delivery operations is vital to an organization’s ability to provide service to its customers and control costs in doing so. From April 22-24, 2012, INTERSECT 2012 can help.

Back in historic Annapolis, Maryland for the second time, INTERSECT 2012 builds on RouteSmart’s effective, affordable solutions for newspapers of all sizes, providing critical insight, hands-on workshops, and in-depth case studies. RouteSmart Technologies’ premier learning and collaboration event also gives attendees the opportunity to connect with peers and experts, discover best practices, and navigate routing success – with repeatable, successful deployments and outcomes of applying RouteSmart vehicle routing technology.

RouteSmart has helped newspapers of all sizes to automate their daily routing processes and address the everyday challenges of both home delivery and single copy distribution. At INTERSECT 2012, RouteSmart will also feature a new Droid-based e-reader app that eliminates paper, and puts turn-by turn directions and delivery instructions in the palm of a carrier’s hand. Using the backlit device also increases visibility and readability for the large number of drivers delivering at night.

Exciting and informative, the three-day INTERSECT 2012 features industry-specific roundtables and lectures, one-on-one consulting, a technology showcase, and available “deep-dive” post-conference training. The event also features a golf outing, 5K fun run/walk, Lunch N’ Learn sessions, a client appreciation dinner, and even an Annapolis pub crawl.

In support of the event, RouteSmart has launched a brand-new INTERSECT 2012 microsite at featuring interactive global success stories, event schedules, travel information, and online registration.
