MONARCH BEACH, Calif., Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DST Output today announced that it placed 167 on this year's InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. The 2011 list was revealed last night at a gala awards ceremony at the exclusive InformationWeek 500 Conference taking place at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Dana Point, CA.

"We at DST Output are honored to be recognized for our postal processing technology and pleased to be included among the technology leaders named by the InformationWeek 500," said Frank Delfer, executive vice president of technology and chief information officer.  

The company's Postal Solutions integrate a number of technologies and complementary processes to benefit its clients and keep their First-Class Mail on the move. Client benefits include speedier mail delivery and opportunities for reduced costs. Fewer postal touch-points and faster delivery enhances customer satisfaction and expedites receipt of payments and other customer replies.

"For 23 years, the InformationWeek 500 has chronicled and honored the most innovative users of business technology," said InformationWeek Editor In Chief Rob Preston. "In this day and age, however, being innovative isn't enough. Companies and their IT organizations need to innovate faster than ever before to stay a step or two ahead of their customers, partners, and competitors. This year's ranking placed special emphasis on those high-octane business technology innovators."

InformationWeek identifies and honors the nation's most innovative users of information technology with its annual 500 listing and also tracks the technology, strategies, investments and administrative practices of America's best-known companies.  Top winners have included:  The Vanguard Group, CME Group, Conway, National Semiconductor, Kimberly-Clark, Hilton Hotels and Unum.  The InformationWeek 500 rankings are unique among corporate rankings as it spotlights the power of innovation in information technology, rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.
