INTEGRAL concept provides comprehensive EDP (electronic data processing) services to their customers. The companys main pillar is their business solution software MECHANIK 3000, an ERP software for the metal industry comprised of more than 50 individual modules that can be combined together. The software is developed and sold by INTEGRAL concept, and has been installed at over 100 customer sites.
Due to recurring problems when printing PDF documents from the ERP software MECHANIK 3000, INTEGRAL concept searched for a new simple API software to integrate in the existing application. Based on the excellent support they received from PDF Tools AG during the evaluation phase, and due to the wide portfolio of PDF software the company offers, INTEGRAL concept decided to implement the 3-Heights components.
The integration of the 3-Heights PDF Producer and the 3-Heights PDF Printer was accomplished quickly and effortlessly. The existing software was replaced with the PDF Printer API and the PDF Producer API. Immediately afterwards, PDFs could be created and printed from all modules in MECHANIK 3000.
