The Email Module
seamlessly sends AS/400 data (files or spools) directly to
any email recipient, either as an attachment or as an inline
message. When combined with other Papirus Modules, the Email
Module can send documents in a variety of formats, from open
formats like Word, Excel or HTML to "closed" formats
like PDF and TIFF. Above all, the Papirus design engine means
that emails can be formatted with customized fonts, colors,
tables and graphics.
The Email Module allows end-users to send emails manually,
by specifying what to send and to whom. Alternatively, emails
can be sent automatically: Papirus gets the sending parameters
(email address, CC, subject line, etc.) from data fields in
the spool or from external CMG commands.
- Replacing snail-mail with
email it is now accepted practice to send certain
types of business documents, such as purchase orders, pro
forma invoices or packing lists, by email. Instead of using
slow, costly delivery, email it with Papirus.
- Replacing fax with email
- if customers dont require hardcopy,
it is faster, cheaper and more convenient to email them
- Saves communication costs
email is substantially cheaper than fax and mail.
In fact, the cost of sending an additional Email message
is virtually zero.
- Allows sending editable documents
Papirus can send recipients editable documents, in
Word, Excel or HTML format. This is convenient for the recipient
because the information can be copied and pasted,
instead of being manually keyed in.
- Enables forwarding and copying
emails can easily be sent to multiple recipients
and forwarded to interested parties.
- Saves time - emails are
sent instantly; sending a large number of them saves hours
compared with fax, weeks compared with snail-mail. Emails
can also include large quantities of data: a 2MB email can
hold as many as 35 pages of text.
