Go Beyond Printing

PlanetPress Suite allows you to automate your printing workflow & manage the distribution of your documents based upon your existing business processes – how you want it, when you want it, the choice is customer driven.

Product Description

PlanetPress Suite

A PlanetPress workflow solution can be customised for virtually any need and across every industry.

PlanetPress Suite allows you to automate your printing workflow & manage the distribution of your documents based upon your existing business processes - how you want it, when you want it, the choice is customer driven.

By using input from any host system or application, the workflow tools process the documents, following user-defined rules and conditions. You can do anything to the document; split or merge existing files, sort them, enhance the existing layout with barcodes, OMR marks, signature capture zones or targeted messages; all automated, with no human intervention.

PlanetPress Suite then outputs the documents to any printer, locally or remotely, or creates electronic versions of the documents to distribute them using the recipients' preferences, whether by fax, email or regular mail. An electronic archive can be created and stored in any document management system, automatically, with an index file for easy retrieval.

Key Features

Why Planet Press?

Object Oriented Workflow Tools

The PlanetPress Suite workflow tools offer numerous easy to use built-in objects to simplify connecting to and communicating with almost any enterprise application. Advanced programs and scripts can be written for an unlimited level of integration.

Support For A Wide Variety Of Data And Document Input

PlanetPress Suite allows you to work with almost any type of data or document. Built-in emulations include ASCII & Line printer data, CSV, Database, Channel Skip, PDF and XML; you can also implement your own with our embedded script technology - PlanetPress Talk. Once PlanetPress Suite receives the data or document, it drives the document content, distribution and workflow dynamically.

Unique Windows Driver For Input

PlanetPress Suite's workflow tools come with their own Objectif Lune printer driver for Windows. The driver is device-independent, thus ensuring that documents created with any Windows application can be dynamically processed, modified and enhanced before production on virtually any device. The end result is a fully formatted, variable content document driven by your own business rules, ready for printing, emailing, faxing and archiving.

Advanced PDF Handling Tools

Combined with our unique Windows driver, which has the ability to create PDFs from any application for use in PlanetPress Suite, our workflow modules offer many PDF tools to help you optimise production. You can easily split, conditionally process and even merge documents together. Use the documents as they are or add instant value with OMR, colour formatting, scaling and duplication; or, with third party options, perform address cleansing for postal optimisation.*

Support For Windows

PlanetPress Suite runs on Windows Vista, XP and Server 2003. PlanetPress Suite can be installed on one or multiple workstations or servers (physical or virtual) and linked through workflow communication objects to work together and distribute processing across your business.
