St. Paul, MN – On October 3, 2007, the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities will be honoring Crabtree Companies, Inc. for their efforts in employing document imaging to promote the hiring of people with disabilities. Clay Baer, Crabtree’s lead software engineer, will accept the honor on behalf of Crabtree Companies, the top Laserfiche® value-added reseller in the Midwest for 6 years in a row.

Mary Jo Nichols, Grants Administrator for the Governor’s Council, states that Crabtree Companies has demonstrated a real commitment to this effort, and has helped businesses to think differently about the composition of the workforce. “People with developmental disabilities have a great deal to offer in terms of the skills and abilities they bring to a workplace, and in a wide variety of jobs and work environments,” said Nichols.

“I have traveled the state as technology consultant for the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities to share how disabled persons can be trained to succeed in different areas of technology including document imaging,” said Baer. “It was an honor to speak to organizations on behalf of our disabled citizens.” For more information on this program, please visit www.mncdd.org.

“This is just one example of the many fine people we work with. We are proud to have Crabtree Companies represent Laserfiche’s document imaging products,” said Laserfiche Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Chris Wacker.
