Efficient solutions were needed to reduce the costly administration of child-care contracts. Outsourcing the printing, packaging, and dispatch of invoices and forms is undoubtedly one of the most effective measures. It called for a fail-safe, high-performance PDF conversion solution that was efficiently integrated by our partner company. Products from Pdftools integrated by Advellence have proved to be a very successful solution.
