When we left off last time, we had identified two things that “i leaders” need to be familiar with: what makes the i special and what’s up with the Power architecture these days and why it’s a better choice than Intel for the long haul. But that’s not the end of the story. Come on, walk this way.

TLAForms by TL Ashford converts your traditional IBM i spool files into high quality, professional forms.
Use a GUI Designer to create forms using data from a spool file and data from your IBM i files. Forms can be designed with true-type fonts, bar codes – including QR Code and Datamatrix, color images, overlays, lines, boxes and ellipses all in full color.
The software generates your forms as PDF documents that are archived to the IFS, automatically emailed and/or printed. Forms can be printed to IBM i PostScript printers, any printer connected to the network, or any printer connected to a PC. IFS locations, email addresses, and printers can be variable based on data within the spool file, data within the IBM i file or spool file attributes.
No programming is required to generate the new forms from your existing ERP, WMS or in-house application software.
The experienced TL Ashford technical support team will provide any pre-designed templates like the VICS Bill of Lading, and make sure working with the software is as easy and productive as possible!
