Greener, faster, postage – How Zelená Pošta use Quick PDF Library 13

What if you could reduce postage costs by 60%, and never stand in a post office queue again?

Slovakian company Zelená Pošta are making it a reality. The idea is simple: you send your letters to them, in .PDF format, they print them, put them in an envelope, and send them out for you. No more waiting in line, no more digging around for stationery, and much, much less printing – at least for you anyway.

Not just for outgoing mail, Zelená Pošta is also expanding their service in the other direction. You can sign up to receive your paper mail to your email as soon as the sender joins their network.

They are taking the concept of paperless office to the next level.

With PDFs still king of the electronic documents, Quick PDF Library 13 by Foxit Software was the natural choice for their developers. Adrián Csuba, CEO at Zelená Pošta says, “In our scenario, we have a node-WebKit application that starts an external process when processing the PDFs. This external process is implemented in C++ and uses the library to split, merge, print and sign the PDF files.”

“The application downloads this executable file from our server whenever a newer version is available. For us, it’s easier to maintain C++ application than the Delphi one, that’s why we are interested in the LIB version of the Quick PDF Library.”

While Zelená Pošta is working hard to save time and money for their customers, Quick PDF Library works hard to save time (and money) for them. Its efficiency gives them a huge advantage when manipulating large source files.

“We use the library for creating multiple PDF documents from single PDF file. With other solutions, the performance of this approach usually drops dramatically with 1000+ page source documents. With Quick PDF Library, the performance is much better; my test case finished in 50 seconds, which is 60% faster than the workaround.”

Quick PDF Library is regularly updated with new features with expanded functionality, helping companies like Zelená Pošta stay ahead of the competition.

Their verdict? “Your library is awesome and we’ll keep evaluating over the next few weeks to try the newest version.”

    I love the QuickPDF library – my problem is with the blog post. The title suggests some actual content rather than an advertisement (“How” they did they do it?). How about some design detail? Even some serious parameters would be useful – how the pdfs would be organized – disk sizes involved – expected volume which could be handled …
