Indianapolis, Ind. -- The Indiana Health Industry Forum (IHIF) and Merrill Corporation have signed agreements for Merrill Corporation to become an IHIF Preferred Provider. Building on the strength of IHIF's existing member discount and benefit program, the partnership includes discounts for eligible companies on two new services -Virtual Data Rooms and Translation Services.

IHIF President and CEO, Kristin Jones, says, "Merrill Corporation was chosen over other providers of similar services due to Merrill's extensive range of supporting corporate services, their existing relationships with companies already in Indiana, their global capacity, and perhaps most importantly, their ISO certification for security.
