Event Information: SMA is proud to announce that Janice L. Cessna of Pasco-Hernando Community College (PHCC) is the winner of the 2009 Automation Innovation Award. This award is given to the customer who has shown the most innovation and creativity in solving core business problems with SMA's product OpCon/xps. Janice is Director of Management Information Services. Janice has shown exceptional creativity in integrating her Unisys MCP mainframe with her Windows environment. She has seamlessly integrated their document management and learning systems with their mainframe environment not only eliminating headaches but increasing the effectiveness of their systems.

She has removed many complex repetitive manual file transfer processes from their environment which has saved the college time and money. She uses OpCon/xps file transfer features to move files between the mainframe and Windows computers. She also uses OpCon/xps to automatically perform remote file transfers and to start processing when OpCon/xps detects when files arrive from multiple college vendors and agencies. PHCC also uses OpCon/xps to provide 24/7 coverage for key processes. Janice said that "OpCon/xps has really assisted PHCC in automating a lot of our processes that would normally be run manually thus saving valuable operator time".

SMA's CEO Michael W. Taylor and Technical Products Manager Will Pulley will present the award to Jan and her staff. SMA will donate a monetary award of $1000.00 to the charity of Jan's choice. Janice has selected Pasco-Hernando Community College Foundation, Inc., as her charity.
