The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2005-06-09T13:59:00Z Rural Press signs up with ConnXion 2005-06-09T13:59:00Z rural-press-signs-up-with-connxion Key Points: Rural Press Limited has contracted to commence the use of the ConnXion document production and delivery service. Rural Press has upgraded their newspaper subscription system and will now use ConnXion for delivery of subscription notices and other customer communication information originating from the SAP financial system. This further evidences the value of ConnXion for organisations using SAP or any other enterprise financial system. Rural Press is demonstrating leadership within the publishing sector and will now deliver their notices based on customer preference, including paper/post, email or fax. ConnXion is also currently in negotiation with other large Publishing and Media companies in Australia to expand its growing client base. ConnXion Limited [ASX Code:CXN], a leading provider of document production and multi-channel delivery solutions, today announced that it has signed a contract with Rural Press Limited, one of the largest publishers of metro, regional and agricultural news and information. The list of new ConnXion customers continues to grow and now includes leading multi-national, Australian based corporations and Government agencies such as DHL, Schenker, Cummins Engineering, Smorgon Steel, Data Monitoring Services (TAB) and Queanbeyan CC. Subscription renewal for newspapers and magazines is an essential process for every Publisher, in fact for many it is their life blood. The cost of delivering subscription renewals on paper via the post is high and the process inefficient. Those Publishers who offer customers the ConnXion flexibility of communication and renewal confirmation capability will differentiate their business from that of their industry peers and realise significant cost savings. Electronic communication is the answer and the ConnXion service provides a completely seamless capability for publishers to offer multi-channel delivery options. We chose ConnXion because of the ease and speed of integration with SAP and the expectation that we will realise a significant reduction in our cost of managing the subscription renewal process, said Mike Vorias, SAP Applications Manager, Rural Press. We expect that this will result in a greater percentage of subscription renewals. The ConnXion Hosted Service is an outsourced service model which will enable Rural Press to remotely use ConnXion as its communications infrastructure to produce business documents such as subscription renewals, statements and reminder notices and seamlessly deliver them to their customers via email, fax, short message service (SMS) and the post. This is a significant opportunity for ConnXion within the Publishing and Media industry, said David Colvin, CEO of ConnXion Limited. We are currently negotiating with numerous other large publishing organisations within Australia. -ends- About ConnXion Limited ConnXion Limited [ASX: CXN] is an innovative provider of document production and multi-channel delivery solutions.

This enables ConnXions clients the ability to upload one single data feed, allowing for business documents to be printed and posted simultaneously across multiple countries, along with electronic deliveries of email, fax, data interchange and SMS. The signing of these agreements is the first step in recognising ConnXion as an International Service Provider. ConnXion Limited [ASX Code:CXN], a leading provider of document production and multi-channel delivery solutions, today announced that it has signed agreements with both DataPost (Singapore) Pte Ltd (a subsidiary of Singapore Post) and Datamail Ltd (a subsidiary of NZ Post) to further extend its capabilities of printing and posting documents throughout Asia and New Zealand. This signifies ConnXions first significant expansion of operations and capabilities outside of Australia in pursuit of the goal to be recognised as an International Service Provider. Previously, organisations with operations across multiple countries needed separate agreements with individual mail houses, along with separate operations and management processes for each. ConnXion now provides organisations with the ability to upload one single data feed, allowing for multiple documents to be printed and posted simultaneously across multiple countries, resulting in reduced costs and time efficiencies. By partnering with ConnXion, Datamail has extended its operational reach to Australia. This agreement will allow Australian based trans-Tasman corporations to print and lodge business documents into the New Zealand postal system via Datamail, reducing their cost and time of delivery," said David Allen, General Manager, Document Solutions Group of Datamail Ltd.

These business documents are then delivered via multiple delivery channels including geographically dispersed mail houses, email, fax and SMS messaging. Within Australia, ConnXion partners with EDI Post (a division of Australia Post) for print processing and postal lodgement. ConnXion is redefining the way medium to large enterprises deal with mail houses. Print processing and postage delivery is now a commodity service and organisations should avoid getting locked into multiple, complex, costly and long term contracts with mail houses, said David Colvin, CEO of ConnXion Limited. In addition to the benefits of multi channel document delivery capabilities, ConnXion customers will have the flexibility to easily change Mail Houses, lower their risk, speed up delivery and significantly reduce the cost of posting their business documents, added Colvin. Multi-national organisations have progressively moved towards consolidation of their back office systems and services. Now, with ConnXion, they will be able through one system to simultaneously post business documents into multiple markets, while at the same time providing customers with flexibility as they choose to migrate to electronic document delivery.

Mr. Kiernan is a man on a mission. He wants to change the way we think about using paper within our organisations. Ian has engaged local, national and multi-national businesses to change their rubbish creating and recycling habits. His rationale - business has a responsibility to ensure its practices are sustainable. Ian addressed a large group of Chief Financial Officers from some of Australias leading blue-chip companies, urging them to go forth and innovate by using technology to reduce the amount of paper used within their organisations. E-mail has replaced the stamp and the envelope. Printed publications are becoming less frequent, said Ian Kiernan, Founder and Chairman of Clean Up Australia and Clean Up the World. In the last 15 years Ive seen develop and emerge some really clever technologies that have paid real dividends. Its all about translating raw data into real information, and the cost savings are well worth the effort. The easiest place to start is with paper. Cutting your paper bill by 25% might sound ambitious, but many of Clean Ups business partners can testify that its not hard, he added.
