Our company recently began implementing JacanaForms for solutions to
problems such as this.  The price of this solution fell down to the realm of
reasonableness.  The install was difficult and new forms are not easy to
create.  That said, now that it is starting to operate, we have so many
options as to how the forms will look and where the forms will go
(lasers/email/fax- all in one fail swoop- in theory).  The MAPICS forms are
provided and we just needed to change the address to get started with Laser.
If we needed to do remittance advices, that would probably be easy.  We did
investigate other solutions, they were easier, but your output options are
more limited.  I reluctantly went with Jacana, and (so far) I am really
impressed- it's a whole nether world when it comes to output from the 400.

Subject: Payroll Remittance Advices to Laser Printer

Hi All,

We use MAPICS payroll (at R4, going to R6 next month) for processing
electronic deposits for employee pay and would like to know of a more
aesthetic option for printing remittance advices.   Currently, we use the
standard format provided by MAPICS, which I assume was designed for printing
to dot matrix/line printers on pinfeed forms?  We print this to a laser
which makes it look kind of funky (condensed) and takes up a whole sheet.
Admittedly, I'm a bit weak when it comes to AFP/IPDS/etc., as well as being
a bit ignorant of what 3rd party software is available to enhance printing

Any suggestions you may have for improvement are appreciated.
