Bookmasters Welcomes New General Manager, 6 May 2015 [cached]
Ken Fultz has been named the new general manager of Bookmasters.
Prior to joining Bookmasters, Fultz was most recently the vice president of operations at Thomson-Shore, a leading Michigan-based book manufacturer. Previously, Fultz spent 33 years with The Mazer Corporation in Dayton, Ohio. He last served Mazer as their vice president and general manager of its printing services division.
In his new capacity, Fultz will work closely with David Hetherington, Baker & Taylor's vice president of academic library and higher education merchandising/publisher services, to continue to strengthen the strategic partnership that was forged between Bookmasters and Baker & Taylor in July 2013.
Xinet and the Book Industry, 27 Dec 2003 [cached]
Ken Fultz, vice president/general manager of operations for Mazer, echoes Patterson'spraise for Xinet.He said: "Because of the size of our company and the numberof production workgroups relying on access to the server, our processes don'tallow for easy technological change.That's why we had to be sure of how thiswas going to work before we got started."
For the first phase of the project, the company needed to convert all of thedata stored on a 450 gigabyte RAID with as little downtime as possible.The companyalso had 13 terabytes of archived data to be converted, as needed.
Fultz said to ensure that the conversion ran smoothly, project teams were formedto address testing, change management and rollout issues.The Testing team performedbenchmarking, and developed an accurate prediction of what the conversion processwould look like and how long it would take.The Change Management team developedtraining materials and acted as a liaison between users and the implementationteams.The project life cycle, from planning through rollout, took six weeks.The actual conversion of files from the old system to new was accomplished ina 36-hour period.
"Overall, it went very smoothly," Fultz said."The teams conductedtesting after the conversion to prove our assumptions correct, and thankfully,they were.With Xinet's conversion script and NAPC's added expertise, the processhad minimal impact on our day-to-day ability to meet customer demand."
"And, from a stability standpoint, the amount of ongoing production downtimewe've eliminated by switching to FullPress , alone justifies the expense of theconversion," Fultz said.
Because there are so many features that were previously not available to Mazer,FullPress has given the company a competitive advantage, Fultz said.
