Paloma Print Products offers true end-to-end document quality assurance solutions. Paloma’s flagship solution — Print Perfect - automates labor-intensive, costly, and errorprone manual document QA processes. Print Perfect compares documents digitally, in a fraction of the time required by manual processes, cutting document testing time/cost by 75% while allowing document applications to be tested more thoroughly, reducing risk for companies that present sensitive customer information in their documents.
Print Perfect consists of three software modules – STREAMdiff, DocDiff, and Switch. STREAMdiff is Paloma’s original print file comparison software which quickly, objectively, and accurately compares AFP, Postscript, PDF, PCL, Xerox© Metacode, and ASCII text files. Because STREAMdiff compares the underlying print file constructs/commands, it provides the user a wealth of information about all document changes, including the exact magnitude of the change. STREAMdiff is used to QA CCM/CXM software upgrades, regulatory and marketing document modifications, bar code changes, nonprinted document changes (e.g., paper tray, bin selection, TLE/NOP changes) and more.
Adding to the STREAMdiff legacy, in 2018 Paloma introduced its next-generation document QA solution, DocDiff. While similar in function to STREAMdiff — it is also a print file comparison software engine — DocDiff is used for overly complex document migration and/or redesign projects. For example, DocDiff is the perfect document QA tool for companies needing to move off older document creation engines (e.g., Documerge, Compuset, or xPression) to state-of-the-art CCM/CXM technologies (e.g., Adobe AEM, Quadient Inspire). Many companies talk about migrating your document content to a new system, but who is talking about ensuring the quality of those migrated documents? Paloma, with DocDiff.
Switch is Paloma’s document QA workflow automation software, used to design and implement automated document quality/testing processes utilizing STREAMdiff and DocDiff. From launching high-volume batch print comparisons to email notification upon completion of comparison jobs and the creation of a time-stamped testing audit trail, Switch ensures the most efficient document quality assurance processes by minimizing the need for manual intervention. Whether you print your own documents or for other companies, Paloma’s document QA solutions save you time and money and ensure you produce the highest quality documents.
“Every day, I read something new about how quickly and easily ‘Vendor X’ can help companies migrate documents to a new CCM/CXM system. But these vendors rarely discuss how they ensure the quality and integrity of these migrated documents. This is where Paloma’s DocDiff software can help. We make your migration faster, less expensive, and of the highest quality.”
