The first version of the PDF Prep Tool was published in 1997 and has had a strong demand since that time. The name derives from “PDF Print Preparation Tool” which reveals what was originally intended.

Today the 3‑Heights™PDF Prep Tool Suite is a versatile set of tools for the programmer to assemble and personalize PDF documents and fill out PDF forms.

Verlagsgruppe Weltbild creates shipping documents step by step by merging PDF files

Verlagsgruppe WELTBILD has an awareness rating of 85 per cent (GfK 2011) and is the most well-known book brand and the leading book company in the German-speaking market. WELTBILD uses an IRS-ODS software module to manage picking and packaging at the logistics center. Logistical information is not determined until the goods are picked and packaged. Printing out the complete delivery documents in advance was therefore no longer possible; they had to be created step by step. This in turn called for high performance software that could reliably merge and print PDF documents and could be integrated into the existing program code via an API.
