Halcyon’s Document Management System is a comprehensive package of specialist tools to ensure the automated retrieval, packaging and distribution of information located within archived spooled files.

Link archived spooled files to ‘Report Types’ and define up to 15 different index criteria per report type. Extract information by using a fixed position on the page, an offset from a piece of information or a pattern within lines and columns. Create Bundles of segmented information that can then be distributed as packages or hard copies to pre‐defined recipients. Add and edit Highlights, Line Notes and Sticky Notes within archived spooled files.
