DocBridge Pilot ingests documents from all internal and external sources and optimizes each document for the targeted output file type, regardless of delivery channel or stream. This centralized approach reduces cost and risk while increasing automation and efficiency.

Running a single and centralized output management system helps to mitigate risks and solve compliance issues. DocBridge Pilot provides piece level tracking with a document history and a component check. In addition, it can deliver your output directly to archive, so nothing gets lost, avoiding future compliance problems. You can easily control and optimize your output with DocBridge Pilot.

The DocBridge Pilot solution utilizes a database for document retrieval , converts files only when necessary (to preserve document integrity), applies appropriate rules workflow, schedules as required, then outputs each document to the correct delivery channel for accurate and efficient processing. Additionally, DocBridge Pilot sits on a web services platform, enabling it to talk to your systems natively. It is an ideal solution if you are looking to reduce the cost and maintenance of redundant applications typically required in a legacy workflow or as a result of a merger or acquisition.

The DocBridge Pilot Concept

DocBridge Pilot keeps a small footprint and converts only when necessary. Documents are kept in their native state, avoiding the overhead of extra processing steps, while retaining the document integrity and ensuring optimal output quality.

DocBridge Pilot analyzes incoming documents and simply extracts content from the page, index information or metadata that is relevant for processing. DocBridge Pilot saves the documents in a central repository and stores the exact location of each document for fast extraction. During a job run, the business rules and SLAs determine which documents get extracted, potentially converted and routed to the appropriate channel.

Additional Functions

Re-delivery

Processing does not end with delivery. During print production, documents periodically get damaged and must be reprinted. If a web delivery isn’t accessed after a certain time period, it may get re-routed to print. To properly support the archive, index data and resources must be supplied. And a customer support representative may get a request to resend the latest correspondence. With DocBridge Pilot, you can quickly and easily handle the full range of re-delivery requirements.

Accounting

DocBridge Pilot has an integrated database that allows for all costs and processing to be captured for use by accounting and invoicing systems.

Supported Input and Output Formats

DocBridge Pilot supports the largest matrix of natively delivered input and output formats. This enables highly complex, single pass operations with flexibility and reliability for high availability, high volume environments. A complete overview of supported formats is provided in the Compart Matrix.
