A point of sale system is printing a receipt and I want the solution to capture the data, save to PDF and other formats

Hi,

I want to be able to capture all receipts that a point of sale system sends to the printer and send them to an external system. I have seen some limited information on line about the "VeryDOC Printer Capturer" that seems to do the job. Can you send me further information about that?

I need the following:

1. a point of sale system is printing a receipt and I want the solution to capture the data.

2. convert the data to a specific format

3. send the data to a web service

4. the receipt shall be printed like before.

I am unsure which product I should use, the SDK or the docPrint Printer Capturer.

How is your licence structure? Is it a one time fee that I can distribute to as many point of sale units that I want?
