A current trend in business software is the generation of Adobe PDF documents on the server. At a central location in a company's network, Microsoft Word templates are populated with data to produce invoices, quotations or reports. The resulting documents can be saved in a number of formats or sent directly to the printer.
LiveDocx offers unrivaled technology to provide such document generation services over a standardized SOAP interface. Hence, different types of software, for example, ASP.NET or PHP web applications, Windows applications or applications from entirely different operating systems can access LiveDocx.
The advantages of centralized document creation are numerous: Templates can be stored and deployed from one single central location. Various types of application architectures can access LiveDocx and can thus generate or convert documents. The generated documents can be displayed directly in a web browser, using the shipped viewer, with no further plugins or extensions.
LiveDocx supports the most popular word processing formats, DOCX, DOC and RTF and the default format of TX Text Control, TXD. In addition, documents can be exported as Adobe PDF files.
The web service can be used free of charge, and allows users to create up to 250 documents per day. Premium account offerings are available to users who need to create larger volumes of documents, at very reasonable rates.
Text Control manufactures software components and services to edit, convert, create and modify standard word processing formats, such as Open Office XML, DOC and RTF.
