    DocBridge® FileCab provides a comprehensive, rule-based quality check, so the company can be more secure that you are complying with internal and external standards and practices, which includes individual correspondence sent from satellite offices or remote locations.
  • Postage Savings

    Your business, your rules, your business rules.
  • Preview in Real Time
    DocBridge® FileCab includes a tool (Viewer) to visually control the document to be sent.
  • Corporate Design
    With DocBridge® FileCab, a layout check can be established according to predefined criteria, so that every Office document is only sent if it complies with the corporate design.
  • Sustainability
    Reduction of paper and other resources (ink / toner / electricity) by saving on local hardware (printers/multifunction devices in the departments).

An Easy Interface between Staff and Central Output Management 

DocBridge® FileCab is software for collecting, reviewing and submitting Office documents to a company's centralized document processing. Clerks can then check their correspondence created at the workstation (PC, laptop) against various criteria and rules defined by the company before forwarding them to central output management. The check takes place immediately after the creation in the Office application. This significantly increases the process quality.

Optionally, the central collection of individual correspondence can be combined with a release workflow, which is made possible via the Document Desktop add-on module, a web application. As a result, the formal, rule-based examination can be supplemented by a visual, content-related quality assurance

Architecture and Components

DocBridge® FileCab

DocBridge® FileCab consists of four components:

Printer Driver

A printer driver that acts as an interface between the Office applications and the FileCab client.


The FileCab client, which performs the formal, rule-based quality check and, in the event of an error, provides the user with visual feedback. It also extracts metadata needed for further processing (archiving, mailing, e-mailing). In addition, the FileCab client allows custom attachment control and additional metadata capture, if desired.

Document Collector

The Document Collector, a central server unit that collects the entire individual correspondence of all connected FileCab clients. It selects the documents to be checked for the release workflow and transfers the released tasks to the connected central print processing at defined times.

Document Desktop

The Document Desktop, a web application that presents the review pending transactions and records the decision.

1 WWK Life Insurance Reduces Production Costs per Shipment
Central Processing of Office Documents

Achieving greater productivity and process reliability was the primary reason for WWK to embed its individual correspondence in batch processing. A plausibility check is integrated into the workflow so that the agent's risk of creating faulty documents tends to zero.

The central hub is an output management system (OMS) based, among other things, on DocBridge® Pilot for the preparation of documents for printing and dispatch. This OMS "cooperates" with the software DocBridge® FileCab, which "collects" all locally created correspondence, validates and transfers it to the OMS.

„Compart has an excellent reputation as a data stream specialist and multi-channel output management."

2 Central Document Printing with Many Advantages

Hundreds of customer inquiries must be answered daily. The goal is to relieve employees of non-specialist activities (printing, signing, inserting) and at the same time ensure the compliance of the reply letters with one hundred percent.


With DocBridge® FileCab a central document pool is established. The clerks create the letters, which are checked directly in the Office application according to predetermined criteria, then stored on a web server and, if necessary, released by another instance ("four-eyes principle").

Finally, the documents are transferred to the central output management and sent on the desired channel.

  • Admin: free your support resources up to take care of business, not just the BS work
  • Reduction of postage costs
  • Ensuring compliance (compliance / corporate identity)
