London, October 19, 2012
  • The fifth Imaging Channel Conference (ICC) in Barcelona from October 8 to 10, 2012 attracts almost 300 experts from the document-imaging channel community from Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)
  • Interactive program of keynote speeches, presentations and roundtable discussions supports channel partners in developing growth strategies
  • Final highlight: Fujitsu Imaging Channel Awards Ceremony

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe, a subsidiary of Fujitsu, hosted its fifth annual partner conference in Barcelona from October 8 to 10 with the theme of “Capture the Growth”. Almost 300 experts from 45 countries in the EMEA region followed strategic updates by PFU executives, user presentations by representatives from the banking and healthcare industries and from government, and the Fujitsu scanner business overview. PFU recognized six channel partners with special awards in various categories.

Distributors, independent software vendors (ISV), resellers, business users and manufacturers accepted PFU's invitation to obtain a detailed view of the world of document capture and management. Many of them had visited previous ICCs, which have become a regular industry platform for the scanner market. 77% of Fujitsu’s partners attending the conference reported that their business was either “growing” or “strongly growing” in a survey conducted at the conference.

Mike Nelson, General Manager, Sales and Marketing EMEA for PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Ltd, announced in his keynote address that PFU has again achieved record results in 2012 following a record year in 2011. He emphasized considerable growth against the backdrop of a weak economy, especially in the euro zone, and thanked partners for their contribution to this success. Nelson stressed that PFU provides stability in uncertain times and is fully focused on helping its partners to develop their businesses and prepare for growth.
