Compart - Document- and Output-Management

Accessible Documents Are also Omnichannel Documents

Make a Virtue of the Obvious

Barrier-free Documents More and More Often Obligatory

Documents should be able to be used without restriction by people – without regard to their abilities. This is regulated by law and already binding for many industries.

The Problem

Often the documents lack important structural information necessary for a correct reproduction.

The Solution: DocBridge® Impress

With DocBridge® Impress, you can create omnichannel documents, barrier-free (WCAG standard PDF/UA) while taking advantage of the opportunity to streamline your document creation process.

Our Software: Main Functions and Concept

Architecture and Components
Supported Formats

Document Designer

designs the templates interactively in Impress Designer or directly as HTML5 and makes them available to the text administrators from the specialist departments.

Text Administrator

knows the business processes and defines text modules based on them and the basic rules for communication.


uses the templates provided to create and send everyday customer communication efficiently and error-free.

Architecture and Components

DocBridge® Impress

The architecture of DocBridge® Impress separates design and composition. The web-based editor (Impress Designer) and the actual composition engine (Impress Engine) can be used in concert or separately. Thus, depending on the application scenario the components can be shared or a direct connection between the Impress Engine and existing applications can be realized via web services.

Document Composition with DocBridge Impress

DocBridge® Impress Designer

With this tool, the user (e.g. text administrator) designs the document (template) via an intuitive user interface and, if required, supplements it with information on the layout for the digital channels or the print output.

The user can define rules for the business logic and determine whether the document should be generally accessible (accessibility according to WCAG standard PDF/UA) and in which languages it should be available.

Also possible:
  • Insertion of a variety of supported barcodes and control characters (OCR, OMR, IT franking)
  • Preview of the document for all conceivable output channels
  • Conversion to desired target formats - any format supported by Compart is possible (HTML, PDF including specifics, ZUGFeRD, AFP, PCL, PostScript etc.)
  • Transfer to other DocBridge® products such as DocBridge® Pilot for further processing and dispatch via the corresponding channels (paper, web, smartphone, tablet, fax, archive)

DocBridge® Impress Engine

The Impress Engine merges the templates created in the Designer or already available elsewhere with the variable data ("raw data") from business applications and creates the finished documents using the defined rules and the provided resources (images, text modules, etc.).

These can be transferred to other DocBridge® products, such as DocBridge® Pilot, for further processing and distribution or dispatch on the desired channels. Of course, storage in archive systems or return to a business application is also possible.
