Business Need

Canadian Western Bank needed a print manager that could manipulate the formatting on reports sent from an HP-UX system.

Solution: RPM Elite

At the suggestion of the application support team, Canadian Western Bank set up RPM Elite between its HP-UX server and its printers. RPM was then able to receive the print jobs from UNIX and apply the specified formatting, such as changing from portrait to landscape, adjusting the font size, and so on.

Systems and Setup

RPM Elite is installed on a workstation. The host system is an HP-UX server running ABL application software.


Using RPM Elite, Canadian Western Bank has seen the following results:

  • RPM allows for custom formatting of the reports from the ABL application
  • The formatted reports can be sent to various internal and remote printers
