Milwaukee Journal Sentinel project

At the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a regional newspaper in Wisconsin, we have been printing a huge volume of reports from our system for years, in addition to newpapers. Over a million pages a month come off of high volume printers in our computer rooms and a large ammount of labor is dedicated to managing these reports and delivering them to users.

We were looking for a way to make these reports readable online. PDF files seemed to be a good option in attempts to make an uneditable, online readable file.

We found txt2pdf through pdfzone and tried it out. This was a program that we had talked about building ourselves, but that would have taken a lot of time. With just a small amount of programming to clean up the files that were comming off of legacy systems.

We are now using txt2pdf in a major project to develop a web based report reading application.
