Title (EN) A BULK COMMUNICATIONS PROCESS USING MULTIPLE DELIVERY MEDIA
(FR) PROCEDE DE COMMUNICATIONS A GRANDE CAPACITE FAISANT INTERVENIR DES SUPPORTS DE DISTRIBUTION MULTIPLES
Abstract:
(EN) A method (100), a system and, a computer program product for bulk communication of information to recipients via multiple delivery media are disclosed. The media include facsimile, email, surface mail, SMS messaging, and archiving (and is adapted for new media types in the future). A single interface is used to receive information (106, 108, 110) for distribution including one or more template documents (110) and data (106) specific to each recipient. At least one document based on the received information (106, 108, 110) is transmitted using a specified delivery media (144, 150, 156, 162, 168) for each recipient based on the recipients' delivery preferences (122, 176). Escalating (172, 178) transmission of the document may occur using a different delivery media for any recipients for whom transmission by the specified delivery media fails. The escalating step (172, 178) may depend upon status information (176) from a carrier regarding delivery of the document to each recipient.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé (100), un système et un produit logiciel conçus pour la communication à grande capacité d'informations à l'intention de destinataires au moyen de supports de distribution multiples. Parmi ces supports, on peut citer: fax, messagerie de courriers électroniques, messagerie de courriers de surface, messagerie SMS, et système d'archivage (ledit procédé est conçu pour les futurs types de supports). Une interface simple sert à recevoir des informations (106, 108, 110) destinées à être distribuées comprenant un ou plusieurs documents modèles (110) et des données (106) spécifiques de chaque destinataire. Au moins un document fondé sur les informations reçues (106, 108, 110) est transmis au moyen d'un support de distribution spécifié (144, 150, 156, 162, 168) pour chaque destinataire en fonction de préférences de distribution (122, 176) des destinataires. Le renouvellement (172, 178) de la transmission du document peut être effectué au moyen d'un support de distribution différent pour tout destinataire n'ayant pas reçu de document en raison d'un échec de transmission avec le support de distribution spécifié. L'étape de renouvellement (172, 178) peut dépendre de l'information (176) d'état d'un support par rapport à la distribution du document à chaque destinataire.
