    by Alex Woodie

    Over the last few years, people and companies have warmed to the idea of electronic documents. Where once people would have scoffed at the idea of receiving bills or bank statements electronically, today it's becoming a requirement to retain customers. In the iSeries community, software vendors have adapted their forms applications to distribute documents in a variety of ways, and they continue to shape their offerings to meet future demands.

    Customers Benefit from Forms Software in Different Ways
    by Alex Woodie

    If your company is like most OS/400 shops, it's not using a centralized document management system. It's using a good old reliable line printer to generate the checks, invoices, reports, and other documents that your business requires on a daily basis. But many OS/400 shops around the country have stepped up to more advanced forms processing systems that give them better-looking documents that can be delivered electronically, while cutting costs and improving customer service along the way.

    Panasonic Brings OS/400 Support to WORKiO MFPs
    by Alex Woodie

    When Panasonic announced last week that it supports the iSeries with its WORKiO multifunction printers (MFPs), OS/400 shops looking to escape centralized printing prison gained another option. With print speeds ranging from 23 to 60 pages per minute, and list prices from $8,500 to $20,300, Panasonic says, its WORKiO line of MFPs eliminates the need to choose between high-volume centralized systems and lower-end printers that don't offer finishing options.

    Automated Report Distribution
    Delivering what you want, when you want it.

    "Timely financial reporting is crucial to a manager… IBM's iSeries runs the reports on the JDE Financial Application, but had no efficient way of electronically distributing individual reports to individual people. The RJS products solved that problem by splitting report spool files and emailing each person the needed report."
