My company uses the Lionheart system in much the same way. However, we do
seem to have more than our fair share of PostScript problems. I believe
this is because the Lionheart system uses a PostScript clone, whereas
Docutech uses an Adobe-licensed interpreter. I've had files that wouldn't
print on the Lionheart print flawlessly on the Docutech. The main reason we
stick with Lionheart is the value added service our vendor provides.
