Retire your Printer!
Aloaha PDF Suite is a very powerful tool if you need to retire a printer. Consider the case that your major Network Printer is out of order. You do not want to go to every client in your comany to reconfigure their desktops to connect to another shared printer. Here you can use Aloaha PDF Suite. Install it in Server Mode and monitor the printer queue of that printer. Convert all printed documents into PDF and email them back to the user, archive them to disk or autoprint them to another printer. Please have a look at HowTo Retire my Printer.
Aloaha PDF Suite together with Google Desktop is the unbeatable QA Management tool.
I am the QA Manager of a small testing department with 30 testing engineers. The Aloaha PDF Suite saved us of investing thousands of Dollars into a test case database. The PDF file format was designed for document management and workflow – exactly what is needed in a modern QA environment. We draft the test plans and cases in Microsoft Word and convert them with Aloaha into PDF. The automatic bookmark generation of Aloaha makes these PDF Test plans extremely easy to navigate and allow the testers to execute their tests in a very structured manner. Since Aloaha is probably the only PDF Suite which allows multiple digital signatures per document every test result can be signed by the tester. Even better is the “Sticky Note Feature” of Aloaha. The tool is that smart that it allows testers to comment the results without invalidating any existing digital signatures. One other great advantage of this solution is that the resulting PDF Documents are getting indexed by the Google Desktop so I have access to all results and information in a matter of seconds. – posted by Anonymous
