Since our software was designed from the beginning to be flexible with complete macro and OLE plug-in capabilities, it can handle any number of applications. Also, since there is no programming required, many custom applications can and have been created on-site! (See our online Help)

The following is a list of some of the ways we have helped our customers meet their imaging requirements, either directly, using macros or by way of OLE applications!
