Incoming mail

Incoming or scanned PDF documents received as mail are thoroughly analyzed and repaired on the basis of a customized profile. This process subjects PDF documents to a strict quality control check before they are released for use in document management systems, workflow and other business processes.

Outgoing mail

It is also possible to use the PDF Analysis & Repair component to apply quality controls to outgoing mail. Documents are checked prior to conversion to a print format such as PCL or Postscript to avoid rejects and idle time, thus increasing efficiency.
