IBM i Spool files management and archiving

With its module Maarch4i Connector, the solution captures editions of your IBM i server to pour into the Maarch archiving platform:

  • The file attributes automatically become search criteria : file name, user, job, reference, date…
  • The content is read to extract business data and enrich the archiving metadatas : invoice number, customer, total amount, article code, due date…
  • Whenever the spooled file contains multiple documents (an invoicing batch for instance) they can be sorted, merged and split.
  • The document can be enriched with graphic elements and revamped: fonts, logos, tables, overlays …
  • The document is converted to a standard PDF/A format then automatically put into the archive with its metadata and technical informations

As far as we know, Maarch is the only software today that calculates a unique fingerprint for the document at the time it is recorded, to ensure its security and control its integrity all along its life cycle.
