MC SHOWCASE BUYER'S GUIDE
Bridging the gap between expensive PC-oriented graphical imaging solutions and underpowered spool file manipulation products, is MIRROR IMAGE.
A moderately priced, full featured, iSeries/400 host-based "Document & Report Archival/Retrieval" solution designed to automatically capture, electronically burst, index & store all in-house generated business documents and/or reports as they are produced by the iSeries/400. MIRROR IMAGE provides document-level tracking & indexing for direct end-user ON-DEMAND access for inquiry, reprint, downloading to PC, report mining and direct facsimile transmission.
User defined indices are cabinet-level (i.e. document-level) specific and are automagically lifted from the printed page. No user intervention or manual entry is required.
This is an "industrial strength" solution which handles all iSeries/400 printer output data stream types, including *AFPDS, *IPDS, *PCL5, *ASCII and those "forms merged" spool files produced by third party forms merge software products.
Facsimile integration with several host-attached fax devices, allows users to directly fax retrieved documents, complete with prompted cover sheet, for a professional look.
In addition, MIRROR IMAGE transparently interfaces with a host-attached optical, PC-attached optical, and magnetic tape storage devices, which can be used as alternative DASD storage, micro-media reproduction or historical archiving
