COLD (Computer Output on Laserdisk)
The so-called COLD (Computer Output on Laserdisk) procedure describes a possible way of import into a digital archiving system. Here, spool data (an ERP or PPC system's command) gets stored in a file.
The Document Management System creates image files from the raw data, which look exactly like the actual printed receipts. Similar to scanned documents, these image files will then be added to the archive. The only difference is that the document's entire text and applicable tags from the original raw data are already available and need not be processed by an OCR.
