Transform© is a stand-alone software application which uses virtual-port printer technology to intercept, enhance and redirect text-based report documents. Transform© consists primarily of a "Job Monitor/Processing engine" which is installed onto a server on your network.
Since most businesses today use the popular Microsoft Excel product, you are likely to already posses a copy. By using a powerful product like Excel that you already own, the purchase price of the Transform© suite can be kept lower than many competitors because there is no need to provide graphics, charting and spreadsheet libraries with the Transform© system.
The entire communications process is completely invisible if Excel is minimized to the taskbar. It's also incredibly fast. All jobs are intricately logged for tracing and debugging purposes, as shown in the figure below. Literally hundreds of commands per second can be issued through the communication channel.
The inQ Viewer is a miniature version of the Job Monitor which provides queue management instead of processing. The InQ Viewer allows remote clients to view the Incoming Job queue. This tool can be made available on any Windows machine on the network that can communicate with the main database.
The archive reports screen contains a large amount of search fields allowing browsing and searching of records on just about every single piece of data in the session headers.
The Map Manager screen allows quick and simple changes to be made to the report translation map. This is very valuable for changes to forms and eliminates the need to employ a 3rd party forms printing company.
