DOCUMENT ROUTINGWith the advent of document workflow solutions, where hard copy and electronic documents are distributed and processed through some level of automation, the document routing ideology forms the core “engine” for the software element of the total solution.
Document routing is normally performed in one of two directions. With hard copy and electronic document entering in to a workflow solution they are routed to various locations based on a combination of their content, and the options a user selected at the time of creation – this is known loosely as document capture.
Documents being produced into hard copy by printing or photocopying are often routed based on the cost of production, security options or perhaps size, speed or finishing requirements (booklet creation, stapling etc).
Document routing form the bedrock for a managed print strategy – a solution that enforces controls for cost, usage levels, speed, efficiency and much more.
Document routing can be applied to almost any input and output device within a network which typically includes, photocopiers, printers, MFD, scanners, multifunctional devices and MFP.
