Our customers' operations are made easier by having up-to-date messaging

Pros and Cons

  • "The ability to embed, and dynamically repeat, templates within each other is a very simple yet extremely powerful tool."
  • "Version control and restricted access to some users for template editing could be a useful addition."

What is our primary use case?

We are a B2B cloud service provider offering SaaS solutions to the UK energy industry. Our billing products require various forms of end customer communication. If our customer does not have their own solution in place for rendering documents, we recommend Docmosis.

Our software operates in a serverless (AWS Lambda) environment so a web service for this was clearly important and inline with our technology strategy.

We use the product for two main functions:

  1. PDF rendering of bills and other documentation aimed at our customer's customers. Bills in particular can be complex documents that also need to be presented clearly, smartly, and on brand.
  2. HTML rendering for emails.

How has it helped my organization?

Having a robust, simple, cost-effective rendering solution integrated into our own products increases our attractiveness to customers. It is also vital to our architecture that the software follows our cloud strategy.

Our customers benefit by being able to be extremely agile in changing the flat text in any of their communications. Their operations are made easier by having up-to-date messaging. 

During the COVID-19 crisis they were able to author and implement vital messaging to their customers in a single day.

For startups, having a cost model that grows as they do is essential.

What is most valuable?

We mainly use the PDF rendering facility. The combination of the MS Word template and the passing of a JSON data object into a single simple REST API call that returns a PDF document is exactly what we required. 

The ability to embed, and dynamically repeat, templates within each other is a very simple yet extremely powerful tool.

The HTML rendering, in combination with our own AWS SES service, allows a very simple method of producing bespoke emails. 

The storage of templates within the product in a folder structure makes the rendering call simple and also allows for multiple environments to be catered for. 

What needs improvement?

Haven't investigated fully, but the HTML rendering could be a little more sympathetic to multidevices. Perhaps some options are available there. 

Although not a requirement at the moment, the ability to produce charts might be so for some customers. A solution, however simple, for this would be great. As it is not a requirement at present, we haven't fully investigated whether this may well be achievable one way or another. 

Version control and restricted access to some users for template editing could also be a useful addition.

For how long have I used the solution?

One year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Good. Not a single issue so far with thousands of documents. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We don't have a concern for our many use cases, but they are primarily small documents. 

The integration works. Seems flexible about hitting band upper limits but always wise to model this as best you can.

How are customer service and technical support?

On the single occasion that we used tech support, which was for an issue with our environment, they were very helpful.

They are flexible when discussing environments, pricing bands, etc.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Not for this exact scenario. 

How was the initial setup?

Memory of setup was that it was straightforward with some good coding examples to supplement the documentation.

What about the implementation team?

In-house.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Cloud and REST API models keep the setup costs low. 

Price bands are based on pages so ensure you have a good understanding of this if documents are of variable length. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Did not formally evaluate multiple solutions. Selected preferred option on apparent ease of integration and cost, then trialed it successfully.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Easy to make changes to reports using its templates which provides flexibility in our design approach

Pros and Cons

  • "To generate these same tabular formatted reports with a code-only solution would have taken a lot longer to implement than the Docmosis template-based approach. Docmosis templates were easier to design as we were able to use Microsoft Word to create them. The templates made it easy to make any changes to reports and provided flexibility in our design approach."
  • "It would be great to have improved diagnostic and debugging tools. When report templates are complex, sometimes any minor modification needs to be thoroughly tested to ensure that it does not disrupt a previously designed template."

What is our primary use case?

We integrated Docmosis Cloud service into our custom software application developed for medical analysis. We have been using Docmosis Cloud service for the past six years. We were able to generate complex detailed reports to display the results of medical testing. The reports have a complex layout with multiple table/header structures. The Docmosis template based approach was ideal to generate these reports and make any changes quickly. 

How has it helped my organization?

The Docmosis solution was ideal to handle our use case. To generate these same tabular formatted reports with a code-only solution would have taken a lot longer to implement than the Docmosis template based approach. Docmosis templates were easier to design as we were able to use Microsoft Word to create them. The templates made it easy to make any changes to reports and provided flexibility in our design approach. We were able to generate real-time multiple page PDF reports from our application, which were well-formatted. The process of adding any new report is also fairly simple with Docmosis Cloud service.

What is most valuable?

The features we found most useful for our application are: 

  • Template based approach
  • Cloud hosted solution
  • Flexibility to update templates
  • Easy rendering of templates. 

Adding new templates is also simple with the cloud based service. Templates are just Microsoft Word documents, so there is no need to learn other templating. 

What needs improvement?

It would be great to have improved diagnostic and debugging tools. When report templates are complex, sometimes any minor modification needs to be thoroughly tested to ensure that it does not disrupt a previously designed template. 

For how long have I used the solution?

Six years.

How are customer service and technical support?

Docmosis has good customer support and plenty of documentation available along with code samples which helped us to implement the REST API easily. Also, we were able to get rendered reports in different available formats (PDF, HTML, text, etc.).

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The new DWS3 cloud console looks great and user-friendly compared to the older DWS platform. It will be easy to track, manage, and upload templates with new DWS3 cloud console UI.

How was the initial setup?

We found Docmosis Cloud service very easy to use and implement for our application reporting needs. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

Easy to integrate this solution into an existing system

Pros and Cons

  • "Globally, the ability to create document templates in several formats by using a rich syntax is simple and clear to understand."
  • "We are facing new challenges such as internationalization. The next big challenge will be to offer even more date formats and numbers that cover the majority of countries. It will be to also think about features, such as number to text conversion, or the reverse which is currently only available in English but is in great demand by our international customers."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to make it easier for HR teams to generate HR documents for employees via an intuitive user interface and in a few clicks. In this context, we need a document generation solution embedded within our product which allows us to generate documents from preconfigured document templates with a rich syntax (conditional sections, mathematical functions, date, and number). Data is then retrieved from the different HRISs and fetched with the document template in order to fill the generated document. 

The product is currently very complete and meets the majority of our use cases.

What is most valuable?

Globally, the ability to create document templates in several formats by using a rich syntax is simple and clear to understand. 

What needs improvement?

Our business is expanding internationally, as is Docmosis. So, we are facing new challenges such as internationalization. The next big challenge will be to offer even more date formats and numbers that cover the majority of countries. It will be to also think about features, such as number to text conversion, or the reverse which is currently only available in English but is in great demand by our international customers.

How are customer service and technical support?

Our business is in a hypergrowth phase, and Docmosis not only provided us with a powerful library for document generation that has accompanied our growth, but also with amazing support during this transition. We had the pleasure of discussing with experts who perfectly mastered use cases of document generation, were able to provide us with their feedback, and who have been very reactive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had a limited homemade solution to generate documents based on Java technology which was not scalable at all.

How was the initial setup?

It was easy for us to integrate this solution into our existing system. Our technical teams greatly appreciated the technical documentation provided and the reactivity of the support. This allowed us to be live in less than two weeks, which is a big challenge in the software world.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
