For immediate release
August 12, 1999

Chris Courtright, a 1984 Abilene Christian University graduate, now serves as Information Technology applications manager for USAA, one of America1s largest insurance companies. He was quoted in an article titled "Productive Printing" in the July 5, 1999 edition of InformationWeek, a magazine designed specifically for business and technology managers.

In "Productive Printing" several companies such as Reynolds Metals Co. and Owens Corning, discuss steps they are taking to cut back on printing costs. Options such as more efficient printers and printing applications were discussed.

Courtright explained that USAA is taking advantage of the Internet in order to reduce printing costs, be more efficient and be more flexible. Documents can be on the Web, sent in email format or faxed, all of which save on postage costs as well as printing expenses.

John Curtis, service manager for consulting services at Hewlett-Packard, commends USAA on this step saying that keeping information in digital form saves time and money.
