Combination of MS Word & ITP for easy document maintenance

ARAG Rechtsbijstandverzekeringen (legal aid insurances) provides legal aid assistance in the Netherlands. ARAG is part of the ARAG Group, which operates Worldwide in more than 15 countries.


ARAG worked with OV/400 for many years. Since IBM terminated their support for OfficeVision/400, ARAG asked Aia Software to support them with the migration from OV/400 to ITP and MS Word.

"We have chosen ITP as the alternative for OV/400 data text merge," said Mr. Pastoor of ARAG. "Aia Software, together with our other partner, has supported us with this migration. For the conversion of our old OV/400 documents and our existing OV/400 templates, Aia used their ITP/Office to Office conversion software."
He added, "Working with MS Word and ITP instead of OV/400 makes the maintenance of documents much easier. Super-users, instead of IT-personnel in the OV/400 environment, can easily edit text and layout. New documents can be set-up easy and in full accordance with the look and feel of the company. Besides this, we can use of all kinds of barcodes to save money on portage costs. Furthermore, these barcodes let us print more efficiently and save money on our printing process. Last but not least, we are now able to easily create documents in PDF format and print documents on line if required."
