Advanced Digital Document Management

The vision of the paperless office is increasingly becoming a reality in many company areas. Particularly document-based business processes these days usually make use of digital copies of documents which ideally are generated with the help of scanners following postal delivery.

afb’s 'Advanced Digital Document Management' Fast Integration Business Service supports an end-to-end digitisation of document-based business processes when recording, storing and communicating time-critical information and converts the late-scan into an early-scan process.

Features Advanced Digital Document Management

  • End-to-end digitalisation of document-based business processes
  • Business service for transferring, administering, inspecting, analysing and processing electronic documents and information through different stakeholders
  • Integration of various input channels (direct upload, afb-Digitizer-App, via e-mail)
  • Simple connection to various systems via standardised surface and interfaces
  • Optional comfort functionalities such as synchronisation with ECM/DMS solutions, content extraction through optical text recognition (OCR) and automatic allocation through intelligent pattern recognition
  • afb-Digitizer-App: automated processing of scanned documents, read-out of QR codes, secured transfer of document bundles with meta, image and content data

Advantages at a glance

  • More efficiency: the conversion of the late-scan into an early-scan process leads to clearly reduced lead times and more flexibility in recording, storing and communicating time-critical information.
  • More customer satisfaction: the closer interaction and quicker response time have a positive impact on customer satisfaction.
  • Greater quality: the automated processing of extracted data results in a lower error rate in the manual work steps and generates higher data quality.


  • Lower costs: a reduced error rate and increased efficiency through a higher degree of automation result in lower costs.
  • Greater security: extraction, analysis, transmission and processing of data are carried out according to the principles of correctness and security.
