When these two large insurance companies merged, they needed to standardize and consolidate workflow processes. Each company had implemented completely different print architectures, with one relying on metacode to drive their Xerox devices, and the other using AFP. The decided to leverage print transform software from CrawfordTech to standardize on a single platform and to use AFP. Using the JES PRO Spool Extraction Facility, they were able to automate the entire process on their z/OS based mainframe. Data is converted to AFP, and automatically placed back in the JES2 AFP output queues for printing. The automation and efficiencies gained from the new process allowed them to eliminate duplicate printers, realizing a sizeable savings, and delivering ROI in less than a year.
