Printer Utilities

With a vast percentage of our user base transmitting documents by email in PDF format we would recommend installing one of a range of PDF creation programs. Our recommendation is PDF Factory: This inexpensive utility acts like a windows printer and creates a PDF page for each document requested in the system but within a single file. There is an option to link to your email client with the attachment logged into a message. A trial version of the software can be downloaded from www.software-partners.co.uk The working version costs approximate £40 per license.

Pre-printed documents

Dangerous Goods Notes:This is a prime example of having aligned documentation, in that contrary to many people's belief the form is not mandatory nor the need to be printed in red, merely the data. Many customers used to fax DGN's which are obviously meant they were recived in black. However the colour is becoming less of an issue as most users now have access to colour printers and we print just the flashes down both sides in red, with the format and data in black. If you do not have access to a colour printer you could obtain red flashed printed paper and use the options in Formwise to print just the form outline and data.

If you would still prefer to use the pre-printed forms, then they are available from:-

Testimonial

Outokumpu Stainless, Sheffield: Mike Roome of the IT section wrote that "I found the Formwise product was a breath of fresh air. It is packed full of useful features and competes very well with much higher priced offerings. Formwise is so easy to integrate with other systems. This part of a project is often underestimated by businesses when buying packages. The cost of using implementation can be much higher than expected and require days / weeks of consultancy from a package supplier for development and testing. In contrast to this, Formwise was a dream to implement, support form the Formwise team was and is nothing short of excellent. Their response to a query or new customisation is truly impressive. I would recommend this product to anyone evaluating export documentation solutions, it is a gem." The system was installed in May 2006.
