Success story

High-performance creation and printing of PDF documents from ERP system using the 3-Heights™ PDF Producer and PDF Printer

Brief portrait of INTEGRAL concept

INTEGRAL concept provides comprehensive EDP (electronic data processing) services to their customers. The company’s main pillar is their business solution software MECHANIK 3000, an ERP software for the metal industry comprised of more than 50 individual modules that can be combined together. The software is developed and sold by INTEGRAL concept, and has been installed at over 100 customer sites.

Customer requirements

Due to recurring problems when printing PDF documents from the ERP software MECHANIK 3000, INTEGRAL concept searched for a new simple API software to integrate in the existing application. Based on the excellent support they received from PDF Tools AG during the evaluation phase, and due to the wide portfolio of PDF software the company offers, INTEGRAL concept decided to implement the 3-Heights™ components.


The integration of the 3-Heights™ PDF Producer and the 3-Heights™ PDF Printer was accomplished quickly and effortlessly. The existing software was replaced with the PDF Printer API and the PDF Producer API. Immediately afterwards, PDFs could be created and printed from all modules in MECHANIK 3000.

Customer benefits

By implementing the 3-Heights™ products, the speed for creating and printing PDF files out of the ERP system could be increased almost four-fold, while at the same time constantly providing a more stable operating environment. INTEGRAL concept also profited from the extensive PDF knowledge and wide selection of products from a supplier who could answer any questions dealing with PDF technology. The OEM licensing is uncomplicated and the license codes that INTEGRAL concept needs for printing and creating PDF files can be generated and delivered within minutes. The licenses are centrally administered in the MECHANIK 3000 application; only the PDF Producer must be installed on each workstation.

Customer opinion

The stability and speed of the 3-Heights™ products were convincing. The installation was achieved over a simple MSI and DLL installation. Any problems that occurred were quickly resolved by PDF Tools AG’s outstanding support.
