Neutral and exchange formats are required at various stages during the lifecycle of a product. Neutral formats provide secure versions of original files, and ensure time- and license cost savings by allowing for company-wide access to relevant information via neutral formats - without the need of using original applications, such as a CAD system or Microsoft© Office.
Neutral formats may be stamped with watermarks, stamps, barcodes and current SAP data. These additions ensures optimal data preparation for the end user. Exchange formats enable the collaboration across the enterprise using different standard applications.
CIDEON Conversion Engine allows for significant time and cost savings by fully automated generation of neutral and exchange formats. The creation of conversion jobs occur automatically with a document status change in the SAP DMS (Document Management System). The underlying client-/server architecture allows for optimal scalability, reliability and relieves the SAP job system substantially.
The time- and resource controlled processing strategy ensures the fastest possible execution of the conversion jobs. The conversion then is carried out by using original applications. This achieves best quality results.
