Welcome everyone, and thank you for your time today. It's a pleasure to be here. I appreciate this opportunity to talk about KODAK’s Channel Momentum, and to tell you a little bit about what Kodak is doing with our channels and what we are doing to help be the best partner and help channels be successful. It’s impossible to go over everything Kodak is doing, so today I’ll be giving you a quick overview of who we are, what we are doing, and share a few examples.
(Review the agenda)
Fierce competition Need to position the Kodak value proposition at the business and strategy levels to align Kodak's and the channel's business strategies. Shift focus from "you must ..." to "grow the pie" Sustain and build channel loyalty through identifying and capturing incremental revenue streams. Sharpen focus of channels on end customer segments and Kodak solutions. Help channels to transition to new technology. Seize the initiative and grow the business. Deploy best practice channel management and consistent go-to-market planning processes, methods and tools. (THIS IS RELEVANT TO KODAK, NOT CHANNELS) Engage channels proactively in a high quality joint go-to-market and sales engagement planning.

The strategy of that core company – of Kodak Today – is to: - Lead change in commercial print and publishing markets with digital print solutions, while expanding and leveraging our leadership position in offset. - Drive and accelerate long-term growth in sustainable printing. - Build a services portfolio that adds value to enterprise content.
We are confident we will deliver on that strategy, because we have strengths to deliver on it. First of all, we have a portfolio that addresses the current and future needs of the marketplace. - Our digital printing solutions are helping transform markets traditionally served by analog solutions. - Our solutions in packaging and functional printing are addressing evolution in those large and growing markets. - And we have a number of annuity based businesses and services that support customers in these and other areas.
