Create any type of email, PDF or PDF/A from AS400, IBM i and distribute / send or archive

PDF, PDF/A & Emailing from IBM i (AS/400) 

Instead of printing all your documents, InterForm400 allows you to create multiple PDF formats. This is done natively via the in-house developed InterForm400 PDF engine. All PDFs are genuinely searchable PDF files that can automatically be archived and emailed. 

InterForm400 Output Management natively supports PDF, PDF/A 1b, and PDF/A 2b. PDF/A 3b is supported through the AdvancedPDF400. The PDF/A format ensures that you are able to reproduce the exact same PDF format and content in the future. Everything that is required to render the document the exact same way, every time, is embedded in the PDF/A file: fonts, colour profiles, images, etc.

PDF/A is in many countries the required file format for electronic document archiving. Read more about our AdvancedPDF400 module that offers features like embedded PDF and PDF Security/Digital signature.

Native IBM i (AS/400) E-mailing

InterForm400 has its own built-in SMTP(S) mail server that makes email distribution simple and transparent. Configuring multiple SMTP gateways is easy with InterForm400.

We know that emailing and logging go hand in hand, and InterForm400 comes with a comprehensive logging functionality that gives you the full overview of all emails sent out.

Emails can be sent via commands or set up in the simple email definitions menu. Email definitions can be used for advanced, automatic emailing without any programming at all. Documents for customers without an email address are automatically included in an "error list" which is automatically printed for "snail mailing."

Use InterForm400 to create plaintext or rich HTML emails, with or without attachments. 

With InterForm400 you can use variables to customize your email's PDF file names and distribution methods based on XML content. You can also dynamically create personalized e-mail content to accompany the attached PDF attachment. 

Sending your business documents via e-mail can save a lot of time and money. Do your own calculation here.
