Customer Success Story

Dominion of Canada Improves Customer Service

This large Canadian insurance company needed a solution that enable their network of brokers to easily access electronic versions of their clients’ policy declaration documents. Their goals were to increase broker satisfaction and “go green”, while saving on paper, print and mailing costs. Since it was essential that the integrity of the information in the originating print stream be maintained, they turned to CrawfordTech’s PRO AFP to automatically convert legacy AFP print files to PDF/A documents, which are then stored in their IBM Filenet repository, which is integrated with the brokers’ portals.

Product Details

PCL to PDF

PCL to PDF dynamically converts HP-PCL print files into standard PDF for use with desktops and browsers using Adobe’s Acrobat® Reader. This provides you with a way to move PCL print applications to the Internet or to archival/retrieval environments without making costly application changes.

PCL to PS

PCL to PS provides a smooth migration path for PCL printer clients who want to move their applications to PostScript printers without making costly application and architecture changes. Output is optimized for production speed and performance and superior font handling and fidelity eliminates the need for duplicate printing infrastructure support.

PCL Normalization

PCL Normalizer interprets PCL print files and resources and converts them into standard normalized PCL files. These individual normalized files can then be printed directly to a printer, archived or converted into other formats to optimize applications for better throughput.

PCL to AFP

PCL to AFP converts print streams and resources from PCL to AFP formats. Many solutions today can convert PCL to AFP, but the result is an AFP file that is very large and cumbersome and the print file cannot be indexed for archival and viewing. PCL to AFP performs an object-to-object transformation creating an optimized and compatible AFP file.

PCL to Text

PCL to Text is an ideal tool for customers who want to dynamically convert their documents from PCL format into text files. This allows you to convert legacy desktop printer data into a format that can be used with document composition software as variable data or stored in preexisting data storage applications.

PCL to Data
