Template-Based Document Testing: Automatic Comparison Using Templates
Comparing files of different length and structure makes document quality control more flexible
Do your documents comply with the template?
Every company that conducts personalized advertising campaigns knows the phenomenon: the variety of direct mail variants is exploding. It's not rare for one campaign to use several thousand different versions. It would be futile to try and manually compare every document with the template. The risk of error is too high, especially in light of the growing complexity of mailing campaigns. Nonetheless, document quality assurance must be 100% reliable. Tools for automatic document comparison serve as the technological foundation.
One to many: reliably check documents of any length against templates
What do you do if you need to check a hundred different documents against a certain template but the files differ in length and structure? Conventional tools support automatic document comparison only if the "reference" (template) document and the "candidate" (check file) document have exactly the same number of pages.
1:n comparisons are more flexible, and hence better. The principle: An output file of any length and varying page types is compared page by page to a specified template. The advantage of this one-to-many method: the template (reference) and check file (candidate) need not be identical either in scope or page type. So a 100-page candidate file can be checked against a template of just a few pages with absolute reliability and accuracy.
