Brooks Internet Software
 (www.brooksnet.com) develops TCP/IP network printing solutions that allow Windows-based computers to receive print data from platforms such as Unix and IBM Power Systems. The data can then be transformed, processed, formatted and delivered to a single destination or multiple destinations simultaneously. Its RPM Remote Print Manager supports major print protocols and also modifies data on demand, including deletions, insertions and appends, and can drive many printers directly at higher speeds. RPM can simultaneously send a single print job to multiple printers, format and send emails and archive to disk.
