DRV Technologies, Inc., the developer of FlexTools report management, electronic forms and MICR laser checks software, report writer / query tool, and system monitoring for the IBM i, iSeries, and AS/400, has announced the release of FlexTools V6.0 which is the DRV suite of solutions including SpoolFlex, FormFlex, Secure Checks, DBXFlex and MessageFlex.

Many organizations are looking for ways to reduce costs and find paperless report and document processing more efficient.
