It is a high-performance, highly scalable, server-based document transformation solution with an intuitive drag & drop interface that performs any-to-PDF (and any to any) conversions.
installed on-premise or in your private cloud, is centrally administered, and runs in the background.
DocShifter can be integrated with a number of document management systems or to systems via
API/REST Services, and picks up the documents to be rendered at set intervals.
existing systems can be easily coupled to DocShifter. This removes the need for standalone software
on the desktop. Workflows are easily set up, to specify the output to comply with your specific
DocShifter centralises and standardises this process, ensuring consistency and reducing the risk of
errors. Existing processes are simplified, and drastically sped up.
You can create PDF to any required version (1.4 – 1.7 or PDF/A) depending on the need, control specific
features (OCR, bookmarking, etc). With the intuitive, web-based drag & drop interface, DocShifter
offers the unique ability to save & configure fully automated workflows.
The solution is developed in-house by DocShifter.
The DocShifter product can be deployed on premise, in Windows, either directly onto hardware or
using VMWare. For future reference it is also possible to deploy in Linux environments and using
Docker / Kubernetes infrastructure.
DocShifter allows for fully automated OCR from any file format supported; this includes all the image
formats listed in the RFP (plus many more). The accuracy of the results depends entirely on the quality
of the images being OCR’ed so there is no way to guarantee 90% accuracy unless the quality of the
source content can be guaranteed.
A number of methods are available for tracking processing errors in DocShifter.
● If a job was submitted via web services any errors or warnings will be returned via the
response message for immediate action. Different HTTP status codes are returned depending on the type of issue.
● Notifications can also be configured to send alerts via email, SNMP, Webhook or to another
database. These can be configured specifically for each workflow created and differently
based on whether it is a fatal error or a warning only error.
● There is an Error Log feature in the administration Console that lists any jobs that have failed.
● Detailed job logs are also available to provide much more detail for the cause of any issue.
Where appropriate, a job will retry, but depending on the error this will not always occur.
DocShifter has been designed to work in regulated industries where extremely high-quality and high-
fidelity results are expected. All formatting and content will be included in the results. Some configuration will be required to ensure the results are as required, and it is important to ensure that
any fonts used are available (otherwise formatting may change based on the font substitutions
required when a font is not installed).
In the specific case of Excel (and OpenOffice Calc) files, DocShifter has a number of options available
to ensure any hidden information or wide sheets are formatted appropriately in the results.
DocShifter Insights (metrics and reports) provides clear visibility into the number of incoming conversion requests and the number of successful and unsuccessful results. This information can be
filtered and viewed in a number of different ways- both tabular and graphically.
We understand that you might have some questions regarding security and confidentiality.
By its nature, the software we use to convert your documents (DocShifter) does not store any data or documents during conversion.
Moreover, as conversion takes place in your hardware/infrastructure, no one from the DocShifter team is able to access the content of your documents.
We value your privacy. And that of your documents.
