WANG IMAGING CUSTOMERS WIN TWO INTERNATIONAL IMAGING AWARDS

 WANG IMAGING CUSTOMERS WIN TWO INTERNATIONAL IMAGING AWARDS
 LOWELL, Mass., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Wang Laboratories Inc. (AMEX: WAN) today announced that two Wang imaging customers in Europe have received awards at IMC Document Imaging '92, Europe's largest imaging trade show held in Berlin, Germany, for their implementation of Wang imaging technology. Western Provident Association (WPA) and Bundesanstalt fuer Flugsicherung (BFS), customers of Wang United Kingdom (UK) and Wang Germany, respectively, captured the awards.
 BFS, Germany's federal agency for flight security, won the IMC Award of Excellence awarded by IMC's board of directors.
 WPA, the UK's third-largest private health insurer, and Wang UK's flagship imaging site, competed against 19 other European organizations to win the 1992 European Imaging Excellence Award, for the way it has used Wang imaging technology to increase company productivity and profitability. The award is sponsored by BIS Strategic Decisions, the worldwide information services organization.
 Commenting on WPA's win, Carl Doyle of BIS and chairman of the judging panel, said, "Of all the companies nominated, WPA gained the maximum benefits from its use of imaging. The level of integration of imaging into the overall office system made it possible for WPA to realize its planned re-engineering of the entire business process. This led to numerous cost savings and growth in revenue, particularly impressive in the depressed insurance market."
 On receiving the award, Julian Stanton, managing director of WPA, said, "We have worked closely with Wang to realize the objectives we set when we began to look closely at our business processes. This award endorses the partnership we have and proves that this award-winning technology is readily available to other organizations in the UK who, like ourselves, can therefore benefit from increased productivity and profitability."
 In this, the second year of the BIS European Imaging Excellence Award, five finalists were selected from among 20 nominees. Criteria that had to be met to satisfy the judges included: the strategic impact of imaging on business practices; the realization of benefits to the business; demonstration of cost savings and increase in revenues; and technical innovation.
 Last year, WPA also won the Sunday Times/Andersen Consulting 'Most Effective use of IT' Award.
 BFS, whose customers include 15,000 airlines, collects landing departure fees. This results in an annual total of 48,000 invoices and 12,000 pages of correspondence. Using a Wang image solution, correspondence is sent out electronically and automatically archived. This has improved the quality and speed of workflow, as well as storage of information.
 Wang Laboratories, Inc. is headquartered in Lowell, Mass. Its employees worldwide are committed to providing the highest quality products and services to its customers.
