Number of EDP Recipients Since Programs Inception
Lutz, FL— February
20, 2013 – Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems
association, today announced that the EDP certification (Electronic Document
Professional) has been awarded to twelve HP employees, the most EDP
designations from a single company in a class since the EDP designation was
created in 1991. Several other applications are pending and awaiting review.
The EDP program, launched by Xplor International
over 20 years ago, is an industry designation awarded to qualified individuals
who have demonstrated broad knowledge of, and experience in digital
communication, whether in print, over internal networks or online-from document
creation to distribution.
“I am certainly impressed how HP took this program
from concept to obtaining exceptional results in such a short period of time,”
says Skip Henk, President/CEO of Xplor International. “It is a testament to
their commitment to their customers, employees and the industry.”
In May of 2012, HP launched a program to fully
fund EDP certification for an unlimited number of employees within their
Graphics Arts organization. HP is the only major vendor in the document
industry to launch such an effort.
The EDP designation is internationally recognized
and specifies a high standard of ethics, knowledge and industry experience for
those professionals achieving certification in the field of electronic document
systems. It serves as a catalyst for quality; professionals improve the
industry through individual growth, knowledge sharing and mentoring others.
