"We now have a feature in our Agate III product to archive Agate generated reports as PDF documents using JetPCL along with scanned images within our database. For Agate reports, JetPCL enables a way to save electronically, rather than hard copy, month end and other periodic reports that provide 'snap shot in time' reports that can not be reproduced later from the database as the transactional activity of database tables has evolved past that point in time. This is an important feature for us. Adding report archiving to Agate III has already started to increased product sales.
Throughout Agate III we have an option to preview reports on the screen using JetPCL. For example, if a General Ledger journal entry detail report has a report associated with it, such as a an AP invoice or an Agate generated AR invoice, the user can double click the line and immediately view the image using Acrobat Reader. This tight coupling of transactional data to document archiving is what differentiates Agate III from traditional, standalone document archiving solutions.
"JetPCL's reliability and flexibility has put it at the heart of our image processing system. We regularly turn to it first in developing solutions for business problems. Not only are we impressed by the quality of the product itself, we've also been impressed by the knowledgeable and timely technical support by the company.
As one of the world's leading employee benefits providers, Unum helps protect more than 25 million working people and their families in the event of illness or injury. The company uses JetPCL in a Windows-based batch image-processing system, converting PCL to TIFF and PDF files more than 60,000 times each weekday. Called as an executable running in the larger batch process space, JetPCL has proven reliable and easy to use. The productís used to provide documents in a variety of formats and configurations, all on the fly using a robust command line interface. We just churn through documents 24/7 and we never have a problem with JetPCL.
