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 & Publisher server using the PrinceXML converter and implemented the client-side integration with the Plone CMS. Our solution worked out-of-the-box perfectly with all 22 languages used within the European Union - including Greek and all East-European languages. In addition we implemented the templates and styles for the PDF generation based on the OSHA styleguide. We implemented this project on behalf of Syslab.

ZOPYX implemented the integration of the Produce & Publish services into the Plone CMS of our client EU-OSHA, as well as the template for PDF generation based on 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 letters). 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.
