Secure Data Input

Bringing your unique output to fruition starts with integrated input practices that encompass accessibility, flexibility and compliance as you upload your data into FSSI’s secure environment.

  • Extensive File Formats Any composed and raw data input files are accepted from any source (flat files, XML, PDF, AFP, PCL, mainframe, Medicode and Postscript)
  • Unlimited Data Streams – One or multiple input data files can be used to accurately compose and format documents
  • 24/7 Availability – Data can be uploaded into FSSI’s secure data environment at any time, day or night, and your job will start processing immediately

Whether you send raw or pre-composed data from your own systems, our team can create a custom program based on your business needs and creative design. We can also often re-work your print-ready data to help enhance the branding and design.

File Transmission Protocol

For maximum security, FSSI supports and recommends SFTP (Secure File Transmission Protocol) to safely transfer files and PGP data encryption for files at rest, or when they’re being temporarily archived. During the onboarding process, we work with you to set file-naming standards. Once files are received into our secure network and the data validation process is successful, production processing immediately begins. Multiple tests are conducted in the production environment to ensure quality at every stage.

Automated Processing

FSSI creates automated processes that encompass procedures and notifications regarding file transmission, data processing and archival, including:

  • Sending emails to confirm file receipt, with the name, size and date
  • Sending email notifications for missing files, if needed
  • Routing files for immediate processing
  • Creating a PDF Approval File for client review and approval
  • Sending email notifications that the PDF Approval File is ready for review
  • Archiving, then destroying input files based on business rules

Secure PDF Approvals to Validate Data

When it is time to review documents prior to printing or ePresentment, there is a secure portal to validate that the data is as expected and an opportunity to approve or reject the sample documents. You’ll experience a fast turnaround from the time your data is processed to when you’re notified via email to view a sample PDF.

Never miss any pending files for approval with clear-cut notifications and quick access. Easily review PDFs and mark them as “Approved” or “Rejected,” receive an email of the approval status and track the history within a secure, user-friendly interface.

Online Tools for Quality Control

Data handling and security of sensitive customer information are of the utmost importance. FSSI monitors a comprehensive file tracking system to guarantee that the appropriate action is taken for every file that is received.

Our internal job tracking and scheduling tool ensures we have full attention of all jobs in all stages of production. The client-facing, audit-ready dashboard to track file receipt history, PDF proofing and reporting provides transparent job monitoring for complete quality control.

Secure Data Storage and Archival

Convenient storage and digital media archiving options offer quick and secure document retrieval.

At FSSI, we can convert and securely host copies of your printed documents as indexed PDF images, which are available to you online or offline in compressed digital media formats, in addition to presenting electronic statements that differ from the print versions.

These archiving options save you time by increasing document retrieval speeds and accessibility to your documents.
