Document Capture Technologies Announces New Leadership Team

Company to Accelerate Deployment of Next Generation Information Management Technologies

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2013) - Document Capture Technologies, Inc. (DCT) (OTCBB: DCMT), a diversified provider of document capture and information management technologies today announced changes to its management team in a move to accelerate execution of its two-year old strategy to broaden its offerings and expand its target market. For more than ten years, DCT has been a market-leading Original Device Manufacturer (ODM) of mobile scanning devices and has shipped more than 4 million products worldwide.

The new leadership team will be led by industry-veteran Michael Campbell who assumed the roles of President and Chief Executive Officer in January of this year. Karl Etzel was promoted to Chief Marketing Officer and will have responsibilities for strategy, product management, communications, and sales and business development. Previously, Etzel was Director of Product Management and Business Development. Carolyn Ellis will remain Chief Financial Officer and Martin Boliek will remain Chief Technology Officer. Other legacy members of the management team include Pim Blom, Vice President of EMEA Business Development, and John Shih, Vice President of Materials. 

Campbell is a four-time CEO and a seasoned business development and marketing executive who has led several businesses through strategic transitions, turnarounds, growth and exits. Campbell is a decisive executive focused on customer and market engagement. "We are excited to have Michael Campbell navigate our company through this important phase of DCT's evolution," commented Bo Dietl, Chairman of the DCT Board. "DCT has a rich history in this market and a strong nucleus of dedicated employees that will thrive under Michael's leadership."

Commenting on his new role Campbell said, "I'm excited by the challenge to fine-tune the strategy and accelerate DCT's efforts to transform the company from a niche provider of portable scanners to a leader in information management technologies. There is a large, unmet demand for document and information management solutions, particularly in the $50 billion small- and medium-sized business (SMB) IT market. In 2013 we are focused on a three-part strategy to dramatically alter our role in the market and add value to customers, partners and shareholders:

Innovate: The core of our product strategy this year will be a software platform that complements new hardware and application offerings we expect to launch later this quarter. Our new platform will be unmatched in architecture and functionality.

Enable: The legacy of DCT has been to enable OEMs, ISVs and VARs with products that become part of solutions. We embrace this role in the market and will deliver new offerings that provide next-generation tools that allow our customers and partners to create and sustain competitive advantage in their respective markets.

Execute: The size of the market opportunity is matched by the challenge to execute more quickly and effectively. We have taken important steps to align resources, programs and personnel against our business goals and market engagement."
