Print directly to the final destination from any Windows application and control location file names and columns values. Using robot process Automation RPA this print driver will intelligently classify and extract important document information.

Using Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to Print from a Microsoft Application Directly to the final destination.

As a user, I want to print an invoice from my LOB application to the final destination with a standardized file name, folder location, and column values. In the video example above I will use a Windows application to demonstrate a user printing an invoice out of an accounting system.  Using Robotic Process Automation (RPA), this print driver intelligently classified and extracted important document information.  The Desktop Automation Driver placed the extracted data in the defined columns and posted the document to a folder with a CSV and a PDF image.

Today, it is typically a few manual step process for a user to submit documents to the final destination.  The final destination could be a local or remote folder, electronic storage or fax solution either on-premise or cloud.  First, the user has to print to the Windows PDF printer, then name and save the file to a folder, and if it is a cloud solution then drag the document into the website, and then manually enter the document information.  This process takes too many steps and if there is a typo or the user alters their naming convention, the document may be lost forever.

For a repetitive document where the information changes and the format stays the same, it still leaves the user to manually enter the important reference data after submission.  Using a PDF printer driver a user can place a PDF document into a folder.  With the Desktop Automation Driver a user can train the document in less than 5-minutes so that in two steps (Ctrl-P and then the print button), the document is placed automatically in any destination with all the important information on the document used for filling in the column names.

This print driver streamlines the process by classifying the document, which allows every user to be more efficient.  The document will be placed the same way every time, making document search and retrieval easy and effective.

Windows applications will print a document in two different print formats: vector and rasterized.  A vector format is the best because the text is still text and the rest of the document is still in mathematical representation.  A rasterized format is a representative of dots of colors, basically a photograph.  A more detailed explanation can be found here.  This product will automatically adapt to either format.

This product is a low-cost, high impact solution that will quickly generate improvements in quality, efficiency, and cost savings.
