Really, any company that needs to manipulate .pdfs or create them  
should consider using pdftex or xetex (or the up-coming luatex).

I regularly use it to create printouts of art programs or lists of  
graphic files or to otherwise batch process .pdfs (Adobe Acrobat's  
capabilities for this are a bit limited).

Similarly I've used it to develop typesetting backends for a telephone  
book line ad generation system as well as one for personalized  
children's books --- it's a lot less expensive than licensing InDesign  
Server and in many ways more capable.

It's used even more by previous employer. Nifty on-line demo here:
