SPLTOOL allows us to make reports easily accessible to our end-users, while also offering security features to allow them to view and print reports (including printing page ranges!), and not delete them.
Through our menu-based systems, end-users can view reports without having to know 'techy' stuff like OUTQ names, the name of the user who produced the report, etc. Our technical users love the functions like copying spool files to database files, etc. Overall, it provides an invaluable interface for both technical and non-technical users at Zenith. - Scott Lindstrom, Sr Systems Administrator, Zenith Electronics Corp.
