The first option was to scan each print job and save these images in their archive directory. This option, in addition to being very time-consuming, would also have been very expensive.
The second option was to change their existing printing solution to a more efficient way of printing and generating PDFs for archiving.
BlueServer Converts AFP and IPDS to PostScript and PCL
BlueServer was chosen because of its compatibility with its printing process, ensuring that every printed document was properly archived as a fully searchable PDF file, greatly simplifying document searches.
BlueServer Generates PDF Copies of All Printed Documents
BlueServer also offers the ability to rename the PDF file with the specific name used by the IBM Host system, ensuring a perfect match between the archived PDF and the original document from the Host system. BlueServer was a simple solution to the initial problem while providing an excellent return on investment.
