DocYard provides seamless integration of all automatic and manual process steps, whether dealing with digital steps or tracking paper-based ones.
Greater integration of production and automation of operations
DocYard integrates all scan service tasks into a single unified platform. In this case, integration means that tried and tested components and tools can continue to be used with the platform. In this way, individual components become steps in a process. Integrating production with the DocYard platform means all production data is logged at a central location. DocYard is production software for Scan Service Providers.
Standard software, re-use, constant improvement
DocYard modules are reusable building blocks. These building blocks can be arranged in a graphical user interface to create workflows for new projects without any programming. Every project produces new, reusable modules. Setup times for new workflows therefore become shorter every time. Instead of constantly reinventing the wheel, it can be constantly improved.
Central reporting and monitoring
Complete, centralized collection of all production data means that reports dealing with every step of the process can be easily generated. The standard version of DocYard alone guarantees integrity checking and service level agreement monitoring. Further reports provide production data evaluation tailored to the user, in order to obtain data for production planning, costing or billing purposes.
All ongoing jobs managed by the DocYard system are centrally monitored in real-time, in order to ensure cost-effective document processing in the time permitted. DocYard therefore allows constant improvement of ongoing jobs.
Optimal resource usage
Process automation means that all systems operate at optimal capacity, utilizing costly resources as efficiently as possible. Monitoring the process from a central location in the DocYard Cockpit shows bottlenecks and waiting times clearly and intuitively. These bottlenecks can be remedied immediately by reallocating resources in the DocYard Cockpit.
Effective integration of manual tasks with automated steps
DocYard modules integrate automatic and manual tasks (e.g. paper processing) into single unified workflows. DocYard centrally manages and seamlessly records every task in the workflow, from the initial check-in of paper documents, through tracking the paper preparation to the final production of the finished electronic file.
DocYard clearly presents all production tools and resources in a central location, including their capacity usage. New workflows can be created by configuring the available modules and resources without any programming. Resources can be dynamically assigned to ongoing jobs. Error-prone co-ordination processes are dispensed with, since the production manager, operating from a central location, can instantly react to bottlenecks and assign documents and batches to interactive workstations according to priority. Production workers have their tasks pushed to them rather than having to choose the batches to be processed themselves.
Protection of investments
DocYard workflows consist of modular building blocks. DocYard integrates and optimizes existing infrastructure so that it can be used as a single unified system. Introducing DocYard protects and enhances previous investments.
DocYard is highly scalable. It can be run on a single computer, for example to manage an individual project. If the production environment is fully integrated into DocYard, then the DocYard cockpit can also control entire computer farms. It is therefore possible to provide any level of performance capacity required for the diverse functionality of the DocYard modules. Hence, DocYard is equally suited for processing all jobs, whether dealing with small or very large numbers of documents. Additionally, DocYard minimises data transfer between modules, guaranteeing the best possible performance.
DocYard modules for using LuraTech’s time-tested technology, already used by thousands, are optionally available. These include our award-winning mixed raster content (MRC) compression technology and PDF and PDF/A versions.
Quicker Return On Invest
Production environments built on the DocYard platform are seamlessly integrated, are completely centrally managed and achieve a high level of production automation. Scan service procedures are reliable, cost-effective and consistently higher in quality. DocYard’s low implementation and operating expenses from the very first project mean that it generates a very rapid return on investment, considerably increases productivity and ensures lasting competitiveness.
“As a scan service provider that processes thousands of pages a day, we must be able to guarantee 100 percent accuracy in document conversion. A centrally managed platform like DocYard enables us to quickly set up new jobs and track quality assurance at every step of the document conversion process. These capabilities would allow us to significantly lower our production costs, ensuring that we can competitively bid new jobs and ensure our customers’ satisfaction.” - Howard Gross, president, E-BizDocs
