In-plants Meet in DC for Interquest ForumApril 25, 2014
In-plant managers made up the bulk of the speakers at the event. They hailed from the United Nations, the World Bank, GPO, the University of Virginia, Fairfax County Government, Navy Federal Credit Union and several other government and higher-ed in-plants. Gilles Biscos, president of Interquest, and Toby Cobrin, director, each presented research results showing market trends. Andy Sherman, the GPO's chief of staff, opened the forum and welcomed managers to the GPO.
Content management and multi-channel delivery were key topics of discussion. GPO's Matt Landgraf detailed the success of GPO's Federal Digital System (FDSys), a one-stop site offering authentic, published government information on all three branches of the government. The U.N.'s Narendra Nandoe talked about his efforts to make U.N. documents available on mobile phones and the move to a new content management system. Jimmy Vainstein revealed that, at the World Bank, print and multimedia are under the same umbrella, enabling many channels to be used to deliver the Bank's messages.
