We are a multinational distribution service for a company across the other side of our country. A proposal was forwarded to us to store and distribute their stock, the problem was that all the invoicing and shipping/ customs documentation was generated interstate and we couldn't wait for express airbags to arrive as prompt delivery on generation of orders gets return trade.
Setting up a remote networked printer here to print out invoices and documents generated interstate was not an answer as there was no accountability/ confirmation that all printing had completed and successfully at that.
As we received over 100 invoice documents in .pdf form a day, the number of mouse clicks to get a final print were 8, and scrolling slowly one by one down through an email list, you could actually end up missing one or two, which then gave you disappointed customers missing deliveries.
I discovered Autoprint email from Namtuk shortly after getting this contract and searching the web for something to automate the printing of our invoices and other documentation, without adding exorbitant costs of software development to our business.
Through some continual correspondence with Jean Claude throughout development of Version 3 of Autoprint email we arrived at the needed solution to our business, now we can determine the invoices arriving and discard the header page saving paper and ink, print other particular filtered documentation and have a confirmation log and cross check system that we are then able to send back to head office to confirm reciept of documents and print completion.
Overall it has reduced about 60 man hours a week of receiving and printing each document down to 5 minutes at the end of day to check the log and send it back to head office.
Well Done Jean Claude ++++++++++++
