Press release: Merger between MPI Tech and Data Syscom
Convert and Print AFP, IPDS, and SCS Data Streams
The Ultimate Solution to Convert and Distribute IBM Host Data Streams
BlueServer is the ideal solution to convert or print AFP files, IPDS, or SCS data stream coming from IBM Hosts (Mainframe z/OS®), (Midrange or Power Systems, ISeries), Infoprint Manager, or other systems (running AFP composers) on all types of LAN attached single-function printers or multi-function printers (MFP).
BlueServer can fully integrate with existing workflow without any change to existing applications and allows non-AFP, IPDS, or SCS-compatible processes to support these data streams.
It can also distribute the data streams to printer fleets of over 500 devices.
Key Functions: BlueServer
Distribution, Indexing and Archiving
BlueServer can distribute all documents electronically for e-mail or fax, as well as convert AFP or IPDS jobs to TIFF, PDF, or PDF/A to integrate with modern workflows, digital archiving, or electronic distribution of these documents.
Supports Every Printer on the Market
BlueServer supports most PCL and Postscript printers. MPI Tech works extensively with all major printer manufacturers to validate their workgroup and production printers without any compromise in performance and with all printer options fully supported.
Accounting Module and Secure Printing
BlueServer can be integrated with security and pull printing solutions for accounting relative to cost printing and secure printing. As such, BlueServer is compatible and has been successfully implemented with MPI Tech Pull Printing and Secure Printing solution Safe2Printas well as other major Secure and Pull Printing solutions.
BlueServer captures user names and print jobs and then correlates them with users by adding relevant metadata and PJL commands. This enables easy integration with the majority of available print tracking and accounting solutions.
The BlueServer solution is widely trusted and utilized by numerous global and multinational brands.
Want to discover more information about BlueServer ?
BlueServer facilitates the printing process by providing high-quality conversion of the incoming print files/data files. Whether the original file is in AFP (or AFPDS) format or IPDS, PostScript PCL datastream, we guarantee an identical printed output with a complete and perfect rendering of the document data.
An Operational Approach
BlueServer will manage data streams from Mainframe or Midrange servers, ensuring complete integrity from end-to-end with the distribution of the converted data to any physical ( printing device) or electronic destination. It is also possible to duplicate BlueServer to multiple outputs simultaneously; to print for example, the job to a physical printer and generate a PDF copy for an archive of the Mainframe jobs, BlueServer can convert the AFP/IPDS jobs into fully searchable PDF files format with associated Indexing information for storage in a connected electronic archiving system.
