Production administration takes ownership for print and mail shop production processes

Product Description

The Papyrus Operations Designer with its Automated Document Factory administration capabilities provides businesses with intelligent, end-to-end automation of print and mail shop production processes. Production administrators take control of production process templates for complete centralized lifecycle management - across all platforms - of all document resources from data, formatting, printing and post-processing to multichannel delivery to archiving. Multiple environments (e.g. test and production) can be configured: Papyrus Adapters receive data from external systems and handle their distribution into the workflow queues with the necessary routing rules. Report templates are defined with the integrated Papyrus Reporting Solution including the selection of metadata that shall be queried from the production systems.

Papyrus Operations Designer leverages the Automated Document Factory Framework Solution delivered as standard framework with the Papyrus WebRepository.

Features

Administration Principles

  • Job templates are assembled from a library of task and step components to define the production workflow.
  • Papyrus Process Designer can be used to extend process definition possibilities in a visual way.
  • All document types from batch/online/on-demand production, letters from front office users and any other PDF or AFP document are collected in the central document pool.
  • Bundling, sorting, merging and channel matched re-composition of digital documents at time of delivery is supported.
  • Each document page can be augmented with additional information, such as a barcode, page numbering, a message on available white space and the creation of document copies.
  • Documents are seamlessly tracked from creation over centralized or decentralized printing to final enveloping in the letter shop.
  • Multi-channel output is achieved through the major document architectures such as AFP and PDF.
  • Documents are transformed with Papyrus Server into the target channels at distribution time for utmost channel independence.
