Areas of use

PDF generation

Programmatic creation of any PDF/A-compliant document, whereby its content can stem from any source such as a database or webpage form.

Personalization

PDF documents are used for distributing e-books as well as for creating invoices, contracts and terms and conditions, for instance in insurance application forms. These documents share a common requirement: they need to be supplemented with data specific to the recipient.

Automated reporting

Large quantities of information are stored in databases and DMS systems. PDF Toolbox is designed to receive this information and convert it into distributable standardized PDF documents. It therefore enables the distribution of documents across infrastructures where different technologies and operating systems are in use.
