Eliminate pre-printed stationery by composing variable print data within documents created using any DTP, design or word processing package

Using pre-printed stationery presents four problems:

  • Storage - Reams of pre-printed stationery take up significant storage space.
  • Waste - When details such as telephone numbers and names change, reams of pre-printed stationery often become redundant.
    Cost - Press-ready artwork and printing costs can be substantial.
  • Printers - Pre-printed stationery loaded into a particular printer for one job, restricts its use by other jobs.

By taking advantage of today's digital printers, the requirement to use pre-printed stationery has become less of a necessity. Despite this, the print data output from certain mainframes and servers cannot be modified to include the pre-printed stationery element of the output. Furthermore, many document composition packages are too complicated to setup, maintain and operate - so much so that their advantages do not outweigh the cost of training staff.

To resolve this, Funasset's FormServer software module can be included with a TN Interface so pre-printed stationery can be quickly and easily replaced by an electronic equivalent.

The distinct advantage of FormServer is its ability to use documents created using any Windows-based DTP, design or word processing package such as Quark, Illustrator and Word.

Using third-party applications to generate the documents used by FormServer has three distinct advantages:

  • The cost of training staff is kept to a minimum.
  • Existing electronic stationery can be used.
  • The cost of FormServer is kept to a minimum because no WYSIWYG page layout functionality or support is required.

FormServer works by analysing the print data received by a TN Interface, and automatically conditioning and applying it to an applicable document overlay. The completed document is then output to a designated printer or can even be saved as a PDF.
