Architecture and Components

DocBridge® Mill Plus

DocBridge® Mill Plus is made up of individual modules that can be combined in a variety of ways. This, as well as the graphically supported configuration interface, which offers a large number of modules, can be used to easily extend existing workflows with additional functions, for example, as new input and output formats are added.

All modules are programmed in an OS-independent code and work the same way on all supported platforms.

All core functions are combined in one basic module. The objects of the input documents and their properties are picked up by format-dependent input filters. All desired edits can be format-neutrally configured, applied and converted via format-dependent output filters into the desired target formats. Mixing and adjusting different formats is done in one go.

KUBRA: Cut Processing Time from 5 Hours to 25 minutes...

KUBRA, the industry leader in digital and traditional billing and payment solutions, is expanding its use of Compart’s DocBridge® software solution to its iDoxs offering for Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment (EBPP).

KUBRA now uses Compart software for two reasons:

  • to improve the print and mail process and
  • to transform files more efficiently for their iDoxs accounts, which is KUBRA’s EBPP solution

"We wanted do the pre-sort, barcode and add or remove messages and whatever else was needed directly in native AFP and send the files to print. Our initial project was just about AFP. But after a while we realized that we could also use Compart software to improve our process for clients who sent us PDF files."

2 Preparation of Formatted Documents for Production Printing ("Re-engineering" of Print Data Streams)

Often, documents can not be printed because their structure and format are not compatible with the parameters of the printing and inserting lines. This concerns in-house printing as well as external service providers.


DocBridge® Mill Plus prepares documents for distribution on every production line without the need for costly changes, adjustments, and enhancements to the production machines or formatting / composition tools.

Benefits for the printing service provider

High flexibility with new customers - print jobs can be quickly integrated and processed at any time ("onboarding") - no investment in new machines necessary.

Benefits for the customer

Relief in document creation - no changes in formatting necessary.

3 Digital Accessibility in the Archive

Digital accessibility in the archive. Making archived documents that have evolved over time in various formats accessible.


An infrastructure that automatically and securely converts all document formats (such as PDF, AFP and HTML) into accessible PDF/UA and accessible HTML5. The focus here is not only on speed, but also on capacity. It ensures that several thousand users can access the documents simultaneously.


Benefits include compliance with current legal requirements, standardization of data storage, improved search and access options and seamless integration into existing systems.

4 Recurring Peak Load for which Additional Resources Are Needed in the Short Term (e.g. Credit Card Billing)

What do you do if, as a company, you repeatedly have to process several times the normal volume of documents at certain times, but you no longer have the computing capacity to do so?


With DocBridge® Mill Plus, companies have a tool that enables them to securely, cost-effectively, and flexibly adapt their capacity by virtualizing the servers within the corporate network. The existing physical resources are better utilized.


This eliminates not only the tedious setting up of new hardware components. Thanks to the distributed virtual server architecture with a central web interface, the user also keeps the overview of all processing jobs. The software also handles the automatic distribution of the different processing jobs to the individual servers, taking into account optimal resource utilization. At the same time, orders can be parallelized.

React faster on tips

The user therefore has the option to add and remove servers at will. In other words, if you use DocBridge® Mill Plus 2.1 for a specific initial volume, but at the end of each month, you need more resources, such as: the credit card statements too print, the solution can expand to these peak times.
