Automated Document Factories vs Digital Signature Solutions

Posted by Pem Guerry on Thu, Jul 29, 2010

Your output is a critical customer touch point that allows you to complete sales and communicate in a compliant manner important documents. You can’t adjust your output to respond to customer expectations and marketplace demands with an inflexible infrastructure. Manual processes can cause each stage of production—data creation, formatting, printing, finishing and mailing—to be disconnected from the next, requiring manual administration that is prone to error and inefficiency. Many organizations have output systems that lack the flexibility, scalability and resilience to adapt to changing demands. There needs to be a better way.

Many companies turned to Automated Document Facrtory solutions. Automated Document Factory (ADF) solutions are designed to be vendor-neutral, closed-loop systems that can automate and control your entire print and mail operation.

With an ADF solution you can:

  • Make the best use of every dollar you spend on mailings
  • Prove that every envelope is mailed with accurate customer information
  • Maximize throughput and asset utilization at one or more sites with centralized management
  • Improve mailroom integrity
  • Lower postage costs
  • Achieve comprehensive output management

Yet, this still does not solve the issue as well as a digital signature solution can. With a digital signature solution you can sign with confidence as ell as eliminate costly overhead.
