International Online has been using the ScriptX browser add-on for over ten years to enable web-based applications to employ the user interface technology (html) in printing. This is mostly for large-scale printouts for insurance companies and quality control systems for biomedical laboratories. These include printing insurance contracts for life and non-life products, which may span anything from one to dozens of pages each.
Paris Marinakis, IT Director at International Online S.A., said: “We tried using custom code on line printers. We then tested the free version of ScriptX and, after a trial period, we actively purchased a licence.
“ScriptX has impacted productivity extremely positively. For example, we have written print-specific web applications, enabled by ScriptX, which can span pools of printers, supervised by just one person. Also, once a web application’s printable pages are ready for the user interface, they are ready for hard-copy printing too.”
