OctoTools™ is a document management tool designed by JBM Systems, located in Peabody, MA. OctoTools encompasses Forms Design, Report Formatting, Electronic Distribution, Printing, and PDF conversion. Once set up, OctoTools runs automatically to provide high volume throughput without operator involvement. OctoTools is composed of two main modules: OctoTools RTE (Run Time Engine), supporting input, processing, conversion, and output; and OctoDesigner, providing forms design and report formatting.
OctoTools Run-Time Engine
OctoTools RTE (Run Time Engine) is the heart of OctoTools and incorporates the functionality of JBM's reliable PDF generating software, OctoPDF™ and the report bursting functionality of OctoBurst™. An easy-to-use GUI (Graphical Users' Interface) has been developed to simplify installation and support visual access to data and variables. The run time engine has the capability to generate PDFs and assign variables for automatic email and web access addresses.
Document Management Capabilities
Document management capabilities include web path addressing, assigning input and output locations, and report bursting (drill down). In addition, Windows print drivers are used to print to any PostScript™, PCL printer, digital copier or production class printer including Xerox Docutech™ and Docuprint™. The run time engine interfaces seamlessly with OctoTools forms builder, OctoDesigner™.
