Plantrol Systems, Ltd. is a trusted
custom software solution partner for the printing and forms manufacturing
industry. Plantrol provides software and hardware combinations that allow their
customers to manage their business without changing the way they do business.
Plantrol's customers needed to send quotations for their products via e-mail
and fax, while retaining the ability to print the quote. Because each delivery
method requires a unique format, Plantrol was faced with creating three
different output processes.
Plantrol decided to use data2pdf to meet this
specific need. Plantrol created a database to hold the field names, files, and
the positions on the finished document. Plantrol's process sends this
information to data2pdf and the resulting PDF file is then faxed, e-mailed,
and/or printed, based on the customer's need at the time. Sanface's technology
saved Plantrol production time and their customers are very pleased with the
options the PDF allows them to exercise.
Plantrol is currently in the process of offering the PDF output as an
upgrade and they are also using it as the standard in the new releases of their
software. Their Report Program Generator uses data2pdf to create reports as PDF
files that can be viewed, faxed, emailed or printed. They've also incorporated
their document management solution.
