Riptide Server®

Riptide Server

Riptide Server is an output management solution for IBM content repositories. Integrating with IBM ECM repositories through IBM Content Navigator (ICN), CrawfordTech Riptide Server manages, bundles and distributes output from all IBM repositories: IBM Production Imaging Edition, IBM FileNet Content Manager, IBM FileNet Content Foundation, FileNet P8, IBM Content Manager OnDemand, and IBM Content Manager. Riptide Server can be deployed as part of a new content management implementation or as an add-on to an existing IBM ECM repository to support common sophisticated bundling and distribution use cases.

Content extracted from content repositories is assembled, converted to industry standard PDF and packaged along with user designated tables of contents, watermarks, annotations and other Document Management System artefacts. Output is multi-channel enabled so it can be directed to multiple devices and or systems for multiple delivery options – print, FTP, e-mail, BOX collaboration folders, fax, and much more.

Riptide Advantages

  • Easily convert multiple disparate documents and document types into a standard format.
  • Pull content from different content repositories.
  • Distribute in a standard format for multiple destinations.
  • Track output delivery by user and job.
  • Eliminate bottlenecks retrieving content from ECM systems for output. Easily and economically comply with customer requests for information as well as legal and regulatory discovery demands.
  • Maintain compliance with HIPAA, GLB and other regulations through redaction of specific content and using Signed PDF as a delivery format.
  • Easily and economically comply with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

Riptide collects disparate documents from multiple content systems, formats the documents as a PDF files and delivers those documents for output in print, FTP, e-mail, delivery to a BOX collaboration folder and more. Users no longer need to open and download each file in the originating application to generate output. You can simply select the documents needed within the user interface – no matter what format or repository – and then with a mouse-click – dynamically bundle the documents into PDF for distribution to potential multiple destinations. Riptide maintains multiple output queues for distribution to multiple local and distributed printers, FAX, FTP sites, BOX locations, network file shares and even CDs and DVDs. Riptide Server can also be integrated with applications via a RESTful XML API.

Riptide Benefits

  • Save time and cost by eliminating the need to manually retrieve, print and package requests for information
  • Rapidly respond to customer, government and legal requests for information
  • Federate document search, retrieval and response across multiple disparate document repositories
  • Insert tables of contents, notes and watermarks to selected documents to better explain information to recipients.
  • Riptide works with any document type in nearly any ECM system. In short: Riptide makes it easy to find the documents you need and rapidly distribute them in a universally accepted PDF format using multiple delivery methods.

More Efficient Case Management and Distribution

A police department in a medium sized city is responsible for almost 210,000 residents spread out over 23 square miles. They needed a more streamlined process for case management, which typically involved multiple departments, and required labor-intensive processes, involving printing, copying, collating, hand stamping and the use of couriers. Crawford Technologies Riptide was deployed to automate the distribution of case files stored in the IBM FileNet Content Manager repository. Based on templates, documents in the case file are now automatically retrieved and consolidated for distribution, saving the city time and money.
