Sharing your IBM S/3x/400 data is demanding more attention these days. As users become more familiar with power PC based spreadsheets and relational data bases, MIS is under pressure to provide files in a PC format. No sweat with Micro Integration's Monarch and Get Report software, which simplifies your file transfer chores, all at a very reasonable cost.....and the time when Monarch pays for itself quickest is during a migration from the S/36 to a LAN or UNIX based system, such as the RS6000.
The IBM/Lexmark line of matrix printers puts the power of 7 resident barcodes in a printer which is rated by the manufacturer to hammer through 6 part forms. Included are UPC-A, Code 39, Code 128, and even POSTNET barcodes, and the tractors can be positioned either above the print line (better for unattended operation) or below the print line (better for use with the 'tear bar'). The 2 year warranty is icing on the cake, so call to receive a print sample and brochure.

How can this be? If you are serious about communications, call me and let's discuss whether these "IBM beaters" are right for you.
