Need for Document creation software


Organizations both big and small create a variety of documents as part of their business operations. This includes sales proposals, invoices, Procurement contracts, NDAs etc. Some businesses such as legal, mortgage, and real estate are inherently document intensive and documents play a central role in their day-to-day transactions. Hence they generate high-volumes of documents.


Manual document creation is slow, expensive and error-prone. Missing or entering the wrong data can be catastrophic. Hence organizations that use manual documentation have elaborate processes for document review, thus creating further inefficiencies. Smart organizations use a variety of tools and techniques for automating document generation from enterprise applications and databases.

Document creation software options

Tools such as Tableau, SSRS, Crystal reports generate documents from databases but they lack in document design. Business users still need to depend on IT help for template creation and template changes. Document templates undergo frequent changes due to regulation and business-related changes. Business users then have to seek IT help even for small template changes. Most IT departments are resource constrained and getting a developer's time is difficult and expensive.


Some enterprise applications offer document generation capabilities. They only support certain document types as templates are hard-coded. They can only be used along with the applications they are bundled with. Template and brand governance becomes a nightmare if you are using multiple applications instead of enterprise document creation software.

Traditional Databases to Documents

Please refer to database mail merge on how to go about document creation from traditional databases. Sysadmins can create documents in two simple steps. 1) Execute SQL on your Oracle/SQL Server/MySQL database to retrieve data in XML or JSON format. 2) Populate this XML into templates using EDocGen. You can automate these steps by integrating with EDocGen REST API.

If you are a business user, you can use Zapier to connect EDocGen with SQL Server, MySQL etc. for auto-generating documents. You can set the triggers of your choice. For example, every time a new record is inserted/updated, a new document gets created and emailed.

Alternatively, integrate with REST API for bulk and on-demand document creation. The API integration requires just 10-15 lines of code.
