Submission process of Security Transaction Note#

The first step in digitalization is to collect those notices, preferably merge several input channels to one, e. g. one email inbox. Paper-based documents can be scanned individually or as stacked scans. Stacked scans have the disadvantage to require a split up afterward.

Konfuzio can connect via Mail forwarding, SMTP, or API to the selected input channel to create a DigitalNote.

Definition of a DigitalNote

By DigitalNote we refer to one achievable PDF containing one Note and one machine-readable file, which could be CSV, XML or JSON. One machine-readable file can refer to multiple DigitalNotes. The PDF will be named uniquely, e. g. by combining the day of the note, the BLZ or BIC, and the bank account number, so it is easy to find.
