Böwe Bell & Howell

“The Arrington Group’s Attention to Detail is unsurpassed.”
— Dan Parenti, Project Manager, Böwe Bell + Howell

Abstract: Spanning three years from 2002 through the middle of 2004, The Arrington Group helped Bell & Howell (later to become Böwe Bell & Howell) implement a project to centralize reporting for over 1,000 MERLIN postal verification systems in the field.  The project had been attempted by several groups, both inside and outside of the U.S. Postal Service, but the project hadn’t succeeded.  While Bell & Howell constructed the MERLIN equipment, The Arrington Group worked with the internal development group to ensure a scaled, centralized data environment was properly provisioned, tested, and would work with the J2EE/Oracle deployment. The Arrington Group continued managing that environment until moving it to Merrifield, VA, its final home.
