We'd been using Win2PDF to convert our printfiles into PDF so our document recipients
can use Acrobat, but it'd been messing up our fonts, putting whitespace inside people's names, etc."
Were viewing expense reports on the company's intranet. We tried to work with PDF but we didn't
have much control over it. SwiftViews pulled us out of a bind. Accounting is married to this spreadsheet
and the only way we can view it on the intranet is in PCL with the SwiftView plugin."
Your product did a nice job of viewing the PCL report with none of the idiosyncrasies I saw in the PDF
We prefer PCL because all our customers have HP printers, not all of which support PostScript/PDF.
As our documents are information-sensitive, we're very concerned with true WYSIWYG and our customers need confidence that
the files they get from us are the originals. The nice thing about PCL is that we're using the exact original.
Also, if my printer dies at document #180 out of 200, SwiftView will show me the point at which it broke."
We've been given access to the agencys datastream before printing. Using SwiftView, we can make these
documents available through the web to clients interested in seeing them, as well as being able to print them as needed
without the massive filesizes and the additional conversion step of PDF. Viewing is the important piece, but
printing is also needed. The printing would occur on the huge variety of clients printers, basically whatever
they can do through the Windows printer drivers they have. Readability is key throughout."
This looks good. I was looking for a product to view PCL files that I have been trying to encode. The
use that you intend is much better than Acrobat files and I look forward to seeing this replace PDF as a common file
PCL doesn't cost anything, it's easy to do, there's no training and it prints anywhere. For architects
to put specs in PDF, it's a nightmare inside a nightmare."
PDF files are profoundly less efficient the bigger they get. Large PDF files are unbearably slow to
I am quite pleased with the functionality of SwiftView, it allows me to view multiple file formats quickly and
easily. We had thought of going to PDF files but this requires additional software and is proprietary. I
like what I have seen thus far and am going to propose that all imaging applications utilize this viewer."
We've got seven thousand users just in Texas, everybody posting documents from all kinds of software, and we can't
afford to buy SEVEN THOUSAND copies of PDF Writer."
PCL is easier to handle and print our home lending apps remotely. PDF alters the format."
[Alter format, alter content . . .]
PDF is absolutely out of the question. PDF has absolutely horrid print quality."
This big PS [PostScript] wrapper grinds out horribly verbose files in an arcane language that few people understand.
PCL and SwiftView are preferrable."
SwiftView's light in its system impact. It's fast and easy to use on PCL, which is a whole lot easier to
create than PDF which is sizable and sluggish. With PCL, just print to file and it's done."
Thanks a lot for pointing everything out. PCL and SwiftView are good alternatives to the bloated Adobe
