Topic - Modernizing Your IBM Document Design and Distribution

Updating the look and feel of plain-text spool file printouts is one of the most common modernization challenges that IBM i shops face. Today's end users demand modern-looking, graphical documents in electronic formats like PDF.

Join Jon Jeuck, Quadrant Software's Product Marketing Manager, for a virtual presentation on November 17th at MRMUG. He'll review some of the best practices and things to look for when reviewing IBM i document design and distribution solutions, including the ability to:

• Modernize your critical IBM i generated forms, checks and labels
• Create graphical overlays from a desktop WYSIWYG editor
• Automatically archive and email documents as PDF
• Instantly modernize ERP documents with pre-mapped templates
• Capture and merge signatures
• Access documents in a secure web-based portal

Speaker – Jon Jeuck

With 11 years in tech and software, Jon has seen countless organizations maximize the value of their IBM i platform - while improving customer service - by modernizing their IBM i document output processes.
