As a result, customers can quickly distribute information through external Web sites or corporate Intranets without learning new tools or spending additional time and resources reauthoring documents into other formats. "We have thousands of pages of corporate information and hundreds of pages of insurance forms and benefits materials," said Joe Small, Advanced Technology Group lead at Source W, a Westinghouse division that provides electronic and multimedia services to the company. "We started out using HTML to put this information on-line, but were spending hours reauthoring documents which, in the end, looked nothing like the original. With Acrobat software, it takes just minutes to output documents to PDF and then make them available to employees over the Intranet. Employees can print what they need when they need it. In addition, the time and cost savings of not having to reauthor documents is substantial."
