PdfCompressor - A Complementary Technology
PdfCompressor is a great fit in any current document imaging implementation. It sits between your capture and document management and helps optimize the performance of both applications. It helps your capture software to output higher quality, more usable files, and your document management software runs more efficiently because it’s utilizing less storage space and offering smaller files for download.
PdfCompressor can be integrated directly with leading capture application like Kofax Capture and OpenText Captiva (formerly EMC Captiva) through pre-written connections. PdfCompressor can be integrated with other capture and document management applications on the command line level. It can also be configured as a standalone process, which automatically ingests and converts files from watch folders and outputs them into a file system.
PdfCompressor is a fit for both new and existing document imaging applications. For a new user of document management technology, it offers the opportunity to have a system optimized for storage, as well as for downloading to mobile computers. For a legacy user, it offers a relatively inexpensive way to modernize and refresh a system without having to invest in a whole new document imaging system.
Transferring to Cloud Environments
PdfCompressor is also a great tool to help with moving legacy applications to cloud environments. If you have been hesitant to transition from an old document management system, even one for which a vendor is providing minimal support for, to a more modern cloud environment because of the perceived cost of storing all your legacy documents in the cloud— PdfCompressor can be used to significantly reduce cloud storage costs.
Optimizing Scanner Use
Implementing PdfCompressor will also better enable you to take full advantage of the most advanced scanner technology. Most high-speed document scanners are now able to produce high quality color images at the same speed with which they produce bi-tonal and gray scale images. However, many organizations do not take advantage of this capability to create and store the most accurate representation of their documents because of concerns about having the store the larger color files. With PdfCompressor’s ability to reduce color file sizes by more than 95%, storage concerns about color should become moot and you can start taking full advantage of your scanners.
