Crawford Technologies Introduces Six New Products

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

New product releases give CrawfordTech customers exciting edge over competition

Crawford Technologies has today released a record-breaking six new products at one time. This exciting multi-product release is in response to customer requests to push software capabilities beyond industry standards.

"Our customers have asked and we have listened. Listening to the needs of current and potential customers has been the foundation for our research and development team since we opened our doors 17 years ago," said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies.

"The six products we have announced today represent a significant improvement for print and mail providers who produce high-volume transactional output. By adding new and improved features to our solutions that lead the industry in performance and customer service, we are giving our customers the edge they need to do business in this competitive market environment."

Among the highlights of today's announcement is the release of PRO Designer, a new intuitive graphical interface which allows users the choice of configuring the CrawfordTech software with their own tools or using  CrawfordTech's innovative new GUI when designing transform and indexing configurations. It is also the first software of its kind to fully support all types of print-stream formats, including AFP, PCL, Xerox Metacode, PDF and PDF/A. For existing CrawfordTech customers, PRO Designer is completely compatible with existing CrawfordTech configuration and index command files, providing backward compatibility and ongoing co-existence.

Another key announcement, the CMOD SDK is an exciting new option for IBM Content Manager OnDemand (CMOD) users that want to quickly and easily integrate CrawfordTech transforms for content conversion and display. This new product innovation supports the retrieval, conversion and display of many different print-streams including AFP, PCL, Xerox Metacode, PDF and PDF/A. The CMOD SDK empowers CMOD ECM users to extend the use of the content they already have stored in their repositories, far beyond what they can with other available options, using a simple Java API.

The powerful PRO Office is a high speed solution that converts large volumes of Microsoft Office documents such as MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint and other popular Microsoft Office applications into PDF or PDF/A without the need for those MS Office products to be installed. This can be combined with the PRO PDF to AFP product to provide a quick and easy process to get Office documents converted into AFP for high volume printing and archiving needs.

The new PRO Spooler is a production printing and multi-channel delivery management platform with industry leading capabilities. This solution extends the breadth of CrawfordTech solutions to meet expanding customer requirements including seamless integration into the PRO Production Manager ADF solution. As a standalone solution, PRO Spooler provides a tool to simplify Enterprise Output Management for organizations seeking to automate operations for the growing challenges in their non-IPDS production printing environments.

Another major advancement is the release of PRO Production Manager 2.0, a major update to the world's first affordable end-to-end Automated Document Factory (ADF). This new version of our Automated Document Factory solution represents significant upgrades including a new Management Dashboard and workflow design Graphical User Interface. Along with the new PRO Designer, the improvements incorporated in this version makes implementing an ADF even more cost effective and easier than ever before.

The new PRO Channel Manager v1.1 solution has been upgraded to provide a complete integration on-ramp to Digital Mailbox Services for transactional documents. The modular solution set includes print-stream conversions, manifest creation, secure document transmission, recipient preference management, workflow management, document re-engineering, host capture and document tracking components. Customers can license and configure only the components they need for technical integrations with Digital Mailbox Services providers such as Zumbox, doxo, Manilla and Volly.

Crawford Technologies will be demonstrating these products at GRAPH EXPO in Booth #2839 at the McCormick Place South in Chicago October 7-10. To learn more ahead of the show, join our September 27th webinar at 1 p.m. EST for an online demonstration of PRO Designer. Sign up today.
