Tarrytown, NY, and Baltimore, Md. (PRWEB) October 5, 2007
Datacap Inc., the leading provider of flexible capture and forms processing software solutions, today announced that its third annual Cycle Faster program to raise funds and awareness for the Lance Armstrong Foundation will make its debut at the ARMA (American Records Management Association) International Conference and Expo in Baltimore, October 7-10, 2007.
Since its inception in 2005, Cycle Faster has brought together the leading scanning, capture and ECM (enterprise content management) organizations to contribute more than $40,000 to such worthy causes as the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the Tyler Hamilton Foundation. At the AIIM Conference earlier this year, Cycle Faster also raised $5,000 for Boston's Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
At ARMA, Cycle Faster sponsors include Fujitsu, EMC/Captiva, Böwe Bell & Howell, Kofax, DocuWare, Kodak, Parascript, Filebound and Canon, whose contributions and efforts are essential to the success of fund raising efforts.
Playing off the business-to-business (B2B) focus of the ECM industry, Cycle Faster B2B 2007 began in Boston in April and will wrap up the cycling season at Datacap's booth #721 at the ARMA Conference. Sponsors and individual donors will compete on a virtual trainer on the Expo floor and race against each other to post the best time on a one-mile ride. Donations to the Lance Armstrong Foundation will be made on behalf of the winning organizations.
"We started Cycle Faster in 2005, and the program quickly took on a life of its own as our partners and friends got involved," said Scott Blau, Datacap CEO and an avid cyclist. "We are grateful to our sponsors and proud to bring our industry together to help raise awareness for the Lance Armstrong Foundation and other great causes."
ARMA Conference attendees can monitor rider progress on the virtual course on a large flat-panel screen and can enter to win a $900 gift certificate from International Bike (http://www.internationalbike.com), donated by Fujitsu. A Cycle Faster donation site at Datacap's booth is available for attendees to make contributions and receive LIVESTRONG bracelets, Cycle Faster t-shirts and water bottles. Custom Cycle Faster cycling jerseys will also be raffled off throughout the event.
