When document processing is complete, the document can be transferred to Post and Final Processing. This can be viewed as a light-weight output management solution. Post and Final Processing allows the document to be converted to different formats and outputted via different output channels. A diverse range of output channels can be controlled as plug-in solutions.
As well as the document itself, control information is also transferred. In Post and Final Processing, various copies with processing notes are created and printed in accordance with instructions given by the specialist application or the user. In addition, documents generated can be exported into the file system and transferred to the long-term archive. This last stage completes the document processing procedure.
