Crawford Technologies' Archive Management Solutions (AMS) division has released a new version of its document archiving software, PRO Archiver 3.0. Now, in addition to having the ability to archive files in PDF format, the new 3.0 software gives users the option of archiving in native print formats such as AFP and Xerox Metacode. This new functionality allows customers to store the print files, offering the advantage that archive files can be used for multiple purposes such as reprints, viewing and repurposing.

PRO Archiver allows companies to use their enterprise content management systems to store computer generated reports and customer documents. As an easy upgrade from the EMC Archive Services for Reports (ASR), PRO Archiver is heavily used by EMC Documentum customers.

PRO Archiver offers users the following functionality:

  • Enterprise-class scalable processing server
  • Support for transforming, indexing and archiving of text, PDF, AFP, Xerox Metacode/DJDE, Postscript, and PCL files containing multiple documents
  • Archiving to EMC Documentum and EMC Documentum High-Volume Server (HVS)
  • Utilizes open standard archival formats including PDF and PDF/A
  • Extendable plug-in based architecture

CrawfordTech's PRO Archiver 3.0 is backwards compatible with EMC's Documentum Archive Services for Reports (ASR) v2.5 and provides an upgrade path for current EMC ASR users.

PRO Archiver makes an excellent solution for new and current Documentum users who want to manage reports and transactional customer communication documents in Documentum.

"This new functionality provides the best solution possible to organizations that need to archive transactional customer data that is traditionally in AFP or Xerox Metacode," said Ernie Crawford, President of Crawford Technologies.

"The benefits to our customers include a highly efficient storage model, fidelity of the original print file and elimination of any file conversion overhead incurred during the archive process. Any viewing of the AFP documents can be done quickly by presenting the AFP in other viewable formats like PDF."
