PRO Concatenator

A Smart Approach to Merging Print and PDF Documents

Product Overview

PRO Concatenator streamlines workflows and reduces processing costs by intelligently concatenating, merging and/or re-sequencing selected files into a single, optimized production file. This high performance solution is ideal for organizations managing high volume document processing with varying job types from various sources. Its flexible capabilities allow you to collect, organize and optimize documents to drive greater efficiencies and productivity on high speed production print and inserting systems as well as document archiving systems.

PRO Concatenator delivers superior flexibility allowing providers to achieve nearly countless process improvements without compromising file size or fidelity. This includes the ability to merge at the page level in a specific sequence while eliminating duplicate resources to reduce file size for fast transmission and processing.
