Cross Border Chomper
Jaws is finally being released in Canada.
No, not the movie version that kept summer vacationers out of the water 25 years ago, but the PDF product line from Global Graphics Software. Available in the U.S. since 1994, the company recently entered into an agreement with EMJ Data Systems of Guelph, ON, to distribute its suite of software tools that make creating, manipulating, distributing and printing files in a standard PDF easier and with less training time.
Global Graphics develops and supplies high performance RIPs, PDF document, workflow and color solutions to a customer base of original equipment manufacturers, including digital pre-press systems, large-format color printers, color proofing systems, copiers and printers for the corporate market.
The company chose EMJ to become an integral part of the infrastructure established to support its PDF sales corporate marketplace, says Alan Wheeler, vice president of corporate sales development at Global Graphics.
"The Global Graphics family of Jaws PDF products provides more for less," says Jim Estill, president and chief executive officer of EMJ Data Systems. Estill referred to PDF Creator as an example of a system that requires far less training and IT support than other PDF creation technologies. "With a value proposition like that we anticipate the entire Jaws product will be very successful in the Canadian market."
The Jaws brands include PDF Creator, PDF Editor and PDF Server. Global Graphics developed PDF Creator as a simple solution that builds PDF files to standard specifications. PDF Server is a centralized, server-based software solution for standardized PDF file creation, optimization and distribution on a corporate scale. The final piece of the puzzle is PDF Editor, which edits and marks up PDF files for the business and small or home office user.
"Our products are not aimed at competing with alternative products that offer a high level of editing capabilities," adds Wheeler. "Jaws PDF products have a simple but efficient approach with comprehensive security and comprehensive options, ideal for the creation and distribution of documents for e-mail and the Web."
