At the center is the JobRouter application itself

At the center is the JobRouter application itself, it is responsible for everything concerning the workflow. By now, there is a wide array of options surrounding the general workflow to handle your daily documents. You are able to constantly adjust them according to your company’s requirements during the entire course of a process.

JobRouter allows you to model all areas of document management. Starting with input management you can automatically import invoices and receipts from directories and email accounts into JobRouter processes using the JobStart module.

Those documents can be divided, merged or converted into other common formats as required using the JobPDF module during the following steps of the process. Afterwards you can use your process to store the documents with corresponding index data in the JobRouter archive (JobArchive module). Of course, documents can be searched using matching terms at any time by employees, based on their individual rights, and displayed in the viewer component JobViewer.

JobRouter - for an integrated document management

JobRouter can get considerably more out of your documents! Because where enterprise content management (ECM) reaches its limit in the world of structured data, JobRouter processes allow you to take on the whole world of structured data. This is shown, for example, with the JobRouter module JobMind.

JobMind allows extracting the whole line item data of an invoice and transferring it to the corresponding sub table without the need for external invoice recognition software.


In the construction sector it is common to change line item data on invoices by hand. In JobRouter it is possible to use the integrated viewer to directly and comfortably make changes digitally on the invoice. JobMind automatically calculates the new amounts and returns them to the corresponding process.
