Software Development & Integration
What if instead of doing a full-blown integration, what if you could simply add your own handling to a print job before it is output to the printer? Our Virtual Printer Port makes it easy. The Ballistic Echo Virtual Printer Port allows print jobs to be intercepted and redirected at the port level. Once intercepted, the print-related information can be processed locally, output to a file, and/or sent to a web service if desired. Once the processing is complete the print job is sent to the local printer to complete the print job. The Virtual Printer Port can also come with a framework to allow you to inject your own print jobs at any time.
Since 2010, Ballistic Echo has put significant focus into our insurance services practice helping insurance brokers, MGA/Coverholders, adjusters, and industry software providers become more effective. The insurance industry in Canada has been a bit behind when it comes to the adoption of technology. Some of the blame is the insurers, other aspects the brokers, and even some is the apathy of consumers. Insurance is going through major transformation and Ballistic Echo is here to help integrate, automate, and remove the painful manual steps of traditional insurance workflows.
Data Extraction Services
Do you still deal with paper files, scans...or dare I say it, faxes? What if you could just scan those documents and have us do the rest of the work for you? And what if that service cost you just pennies a page? We love automating tasks that “can’t be automated”. But we understand that you have unique processes, and that an off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all solution won’t do the job. That’s why we work with you to build a service that is tailored specifically for your needs.
Products & Tools
Although Ballistic Echo is primarily a bespoke software development company, over time we build tools for our own use that might be useful to the world, or applications that can serve a broader audience. Some of these are free, some of these are things we sell. Visit our products page and the articles and downloads section for more details.
