DRM Workflow

DRM workflow


The Hot Folder module allows the automatic conversion of PDF documents. The PDF will be stored in a folder on a server that is continuously monitored by the software. When the user adds a PDF document in the folder, the conversion starts automatically based on predefined settings of design and reading rights. This function is not limited  to any number of employees and even across different locations, it is possible to convert PDFs into FlipBooks.

This allows an optimal workflow and ease of use for all employees and a company-wide consistent look-and-feel of FlipBooks can be achieved. Each hot folder can be assisgned a unique output path. It can also be configured as a multiple-user hot folder, so that different users and different publications settings can be used as required.
