Transforming Print Management Beyond Printing
Mark Gross, NUANCE
Compart's technology is not limited to print. Nuance, a software company that bundles DocBridge Mill into its own offering, is finding very innovative ways to apply the technology. For example, a credit union send Nuance their advertising and statements, and Nuance uses DocBridge Mill to validate that the image sizes and color depth meet a number of requirements --either rejecting the job for a re-do, or accepting it and converting it to an AFP page segment before forwarding on to their print provider. This automates what had been a tedious, manual process for 60+ branch offices. In addition, Nuance has a number of customers leveraging the Compart components to convert what had been printed documents (e.g. reports) to PDF or PDF/A, at which point they are emailed to individuals or written to file for archival – eliminating print altogether.
