Transaction reports, portfolio overviews, etc containing transactional data and more were sent by physical mail to Delen’s customers or posted electronically on the secured website. In some cases there is a need to add generic information to each document (for example tariff overview, fund summary, market overview). Physical inserts of extra hard copy documents containing this information were processed in a physical mailing machine. This additional information could not be added to the online version of the reports.
Delen’s goal was to get a full view of all documents in the electronic archive, whereupon the physical and the electronic version have to be completely equivalent. PDF Documents have to be merged in a fully automated way and the software has to be able to run on Delen’s backend server (unix). Further requirements are a small footprint, stability and good performance. As the PDF Command Line Suite met the requirements, Delen decided to use the PDF Tools AG product.
