Global Graphics Launches Jaws PDF Server Centralized PDF Production
Press release from the issuing company
-- New server-based PDF creation software lets network users on PCs, Macs or Unix clients easily create, distribute, publish and archive standardized documents from their desktops
Cambridge, UK, March 4, 2002 - Global Graphics introduced Jaws PDF Server, an easy and cost-effective way to give all members within an organization the ability to quickly create and distribute documents in the consistent and secure Portable Document Format (PDF) file format direct from the desktop.
Jaws PDF Server is a powerful, but highly economical, tool for system administrators that manages the conversion of users' documents into PDF files. The system can be configured as a virtual printer to support any native application and also accepts PostScript, PDF and TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) files directly. A post processing option in Jaws PDF Server can be used to define extra actions after each PDF file has been created. These subsequent downstream processes include enterprise-wide distribution, local/remote printing, Internet/intranet publishing, entry into document management systems and archiving, etc. Jaws PDF Server significantly reduces the cost of multi-user ownership through its competitive Corporate Licensing Programme and provides powerful automatic workflow design capabilities.
PDF files are becoming the de facto standard for corporate document management purposes. Unlike other file formats, PDF files retain a document's integrity since they cannot be altered easily, and their small file size greatly increases file transfer speeds across networks, reduces Internet viewing and download times and maximizes archiving efficiency.
Jaws PDF Server licenses are available to support from 50 to an unlimited number of users located anywhere in an organization on a Local area network (LAN) or Wide area network (WAN) to produce PDF files from PostScript, EPS, TIFF and PDF files created on Windows, Mac and Unix platforms. In addition, Windows users can create PDF files from within any application such as Word, Excel and WordPerfect by printing to Jaws PDF Server's optimized printer drivers across a network.
