Many of our customers are currently thinking about using Google's G Suite - in parallel or as a replacement for MS Office 365. In this context, the conversion of G Suite documents into the neutral format PDF and the archive format PDF/A will also have to be reorganized.
In this blog post, we outline some use cases for our solution – digital signature – and explain how SEAL Systems integrates it into your business processes.
Office documents can be structured in such a way that they do not reveal their entire content immediately. In other words, embedded files can be "hidden" in Office documents. For archiving purposes, embedded files must be backed up to make sure information is not lost - at any time. Unfortunately, archiving Office documents by themselves is not a solution because archiving cannot take place in an application format. The working documents must be converted into a visually identical, standardized, long-term and revision-proof file format. In other words, any information visible in the working document must also be visible in the archived document, including embedded files. PDF/A can meet this requirement.
A Public Insurance company was looking for a new conversion solution with two main requirements: 1. an extension of the existing conversion processes to include other types of digital documents, in particular application formats (about 5,000 files per working day). 2. on-the-fly conversion of TIFF files from the archive to PDF to enable rapid delivery to customers in a customer portal (approximately 1,000 files per business day). With the Digital Process Factory as conversion server, SEAL Systems solved the challenge in no time at all.
3-D content in PDF has been around for many years. In a PDF, the 3-D object standardized file formats are Universal 3-D (U3D) and Product Representation Compact (PRC). Today, Adobe Reader 7.x. PDF can be used to create 3-D PDFs from some CAD systems via export. For other CAD systems, there are third party exports like Tetra4D. With SEAL Systems’ solution, existing interactive exports can be automatically used by our conversion server. Using our solution, 3-D PDFs are generated on the server-side – completely without CAD. SEAL Systems also provides an automatic conversion with our DPF framework with the 3-D PDF generator server from Prostep.
Our Corporate Conversion Server is a powerful conversion engine that automates all file conversion requirements company-wide. Using flexible interfaces, it can be seamlessly integrated into existing IT landscapes. Numerous additional functions round up the scope of services. Conversion servers from SEAL Systems aim at the improvement of optimization potentials in the daily business of medium-sized and large companies. A uniform infrastructure, for example, can create significant cost advantages! In addition, our conversion servers offer new possibilities to easily configure and control processes and structures in order to carry out transactions in this way that were previously not possible in such a process complexity and efficiency.
With the increasing spread of low-cost 3D printers in businesses and in the field of engineering, certain challenges arise in regard to how these devices are managed and operated. Over the past 30 years, these questions were resolved successfully by output-management systems in the 2D sector. So, it is not too far of a stretch to wonder if the same – or at least similar – technology can be used to resolve the challenges to 3D printing as well.
On 10 October 2018 the iX Cloud Conference 2018 will take place in Berlin. The conference is aimed at cloud users, providers and developers. The conference deals with issues arising from modern technologies such as serverless computing and microservices. Users and providers will have the opportunity to exchange business models and applications in the cloud, optimize and secure the cloud infrastructure, special criteria through the EU-DSGVO, atypical applications, cubernetes, automation and security risks.
As an established, internationally active manufacturer of medical devices, MAQUET is subject to FDA regulations with very high quality standards. This is particularly true in the area of product documentation, where MAQUET places high demands on the quality and security of documents in circulation and archived. In this case study you will read how the medical technology manufacturer MAQUET maps release processes using digital signatures, how the company converts documents to the long-term PDF/A format and how conversion processes are monitored directly from the SAP system.
With Direct Publishing from SEAL Systems, data and files are automatically compiled into a new document. The data for this procedure can be located anywhere, even distributed.
