"Great program!!! I created thousands of pdf files over the holiday week for our EMR conversion this week. I created 5 crystal reports to pull patient data like vitals, meds, lipids, problem list, etc,. Then put the tags for the file name and the patient group in the page header and it created separate files for each patient. Our EMR vendor had said if we could get the data in a doc, pdf, jpeg.. they could migrate it to the new system."

Kay Marcum, Applications Manager, Blount Memorial Hospital TN USA


"PDF-eXPLODE from 3000AD SYSTEM has been a huge time-saver for us. We were processing 4 separate reports each week which needed to be split up and mailed out to 75 different people. It took one person almost an entire day each week to do this. PDF-eXPLODE allowed us to combine all 4 reports into a single report, separate it into the 75 different pieces and email them all out each week. Now it only takes 1 hour to process everything!"
