The Forum will focus on how MFP manufacturers' representatives can leverage document imaging software as part of their solution selling strategies to create new revenue streams and deliver better margins.

The event, which attracts attendees from around the world, takes place May 14 to 17, 2007 at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Miami, Fla.
