Business Managers

Turn every communication into an opportunity to build loyalty and fuel sales

As a business manager, you know that customer relationships are one of your company’s most valuable assets. Organizations invest significant amounts in enterprise and relationship management applications, making customer data easier to capture than ever before. While these types of solutions excel in gathering business intelligence, they lack a simple way of converting customer communications into relevant business communications. Putting this information to work effectively still demands specialized knowledge and tools.

Key PlanetPress Suite Features

Object oriented workflow tools

The PlanetPress Suite workflow tools offer numerous easy to use built-in objects to simplify connecting to and communicating with almost any enterprise application, and advanced programs and scripts can be written for an unlimited level of integration.

Support for a wide variety of data and document input

PlanetPress Suite allows you to work with almost any type of data or document. Built-in emulations include ASCII & Line printer data, CSV, Database, Channel Skip, PDF and XML; you can also implement your own with our embedded script technology – PlanetPress Talk. Once PlanetPress Suite receives the data or document, it can be used to drive the document content, distribution and workflow dynamically.

Unique Windows driver for input from any Windows application

PlanetPress Suite’s workflow tools are delivered with a Windows driver that imports documents created with any application into PlanetPress Suite for enhancement and workflow integration. Unlike most Windows drivers that reproduce a document for printing, the Objectif Lune Windows driver delivers fully formatted documents. You can add conditions, interpret content intelligently, print, email archive or fax.*

Advanced PDF handling tools

Combined with our unique Windows driver, which has the ability to create PDFs from any application for use in PlanetPress Suite, our workflow modules offer many PDF tools to help you optimize production. You can easily split, conditionally process and even merge documents together. Use the documents as they are or add instant value with OMR, color formatting, scaling and duplication; or, with third party options, perform address cleansing for postal optimization.*

Support for Windows

PlanetPress Suite runs on Windows Vista, Server 2008, XP and Server 2003. PlanetPress Suite can be installed on one or multiple workstations or servers (physical or virtual) and linked through workflow communication objects to work together and distribute processing across your business.
