The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work uses the Produce & Publish server platform for producing high-quality PDF documents. OSHA manages their content within the Plone CMS and generates updated PDF documents automatically as part of their internal editorial process. We delivered the Produce & Publish server using the PrinceXML converter and implemented the client-side integration with the Plone CMS. Our solution worked perfectly out-of-the-box with all 22 languages used within the European Union - including Greek and all of the Eastern European languages. In addition, we implemented templates and styles for PDF generation on the basis of the OSHA styleguide. We implemented this project on behalf of Syslab.

ZOPYX oversaw the integration of Produce & Publish services into the Plone CMS of our client EU-OSHA, as well as implementing templates for PDF generation on the basis of the client's style guide. The client is now able to produce well formatted PDF reports "on the fly" in all European languages, including Greek and Bulgarian (Cyrillic characters). Thanks to a smartly structured API, we were easily able to extend the software and build a customised solution on top of it to fit customer-specific requirements.
