What is most valuable?

Auditability is a huge part of what we do. Part of that is generating an auditable track record that documents any decisions made along the way. All of the audit documents, all of the competitive… more»

How has it helped my organization?

After years of fighting with Actuate, Brio, and Crystal Reports to produce nicely formatted reports, we finally bailed and built our own reporting engine using Apache POI. Unfortunately, POI did not… more»

What needs improvement?

We've already briefly spoken with Docmosis, and we'll be pursuing this more - we are looking to take our intra-application monitoring to the next level. Really, we've embraced the DevOps philosophy… more»

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

I think it's reasonable. It's a tiered pricing structure, but we've found that the volumes that trip higher pricing align nicely with our own revenue growth.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We started with Actuate, moved to Crystal Reports, acquired a company that was using Brio. We've had the opportunity to try all three of the market leaders and to be bluntly honest, they’re all… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's absolutely fantastic. It's much easier to design your reports. It's fast. It's efficient. It's been fantastic for us. It comes highly recommended.

What is most valuable?

The main benefit is exactly what it provides -- the ability to use word documents as templates, and therefore they can be edited by non-technical people. Also, the placeholders with content work out really well with PDFs. The way we were doing this was cumbersome and this solution made all that… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is a straight forward, cost effective, solution for rendering PDF documents. It saved us time and money due to its ease of use, Java api, and clear documentation.

What needs improvement?

Just one thing, and there is a way to get this done outside of the solution as currently I go to a third-party solution. I render multiple PDFs and then put them together into one document outside of Docmosis. Docmosis then provides the ability to include them, and that would almost work out for us… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously, I used Adobe products, but price-wise this was out of the question.

What is most valuable?

It allows us to use MS Word with dynamic data population, which is a huge advantage. Connecting to a cloud service also is a nice feature

How has it helped my organization?

From an organizational standpoint, it's reduced our need for a developer to be involved in delivering customer reports for customers, so we don't need our development team, engineers, and software developers to customize reports for… more»

What needs improvement?

It's still a bit complex to develop reports and because of that complexity, there are often mistakes that get made. If we get better debugging tools and better diagnostic tools, developing reports would be faster. That process is a bit slow… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did, and still do. We've used another tool for a very long time and we're phasing it out. It's free and solves some, but not all, of our needs. But when we need to develop or generate a more highly-customized report, we use Docmosis. It… more»

What other advice do I have?

It allows documents to be designed without needing a developer or a web designer. Anybody who has expertise in Microsoft Word can do this kind of thing, or even the customer themselves could easily format the document to make changes. It's… more»

What is most valuable?

Compared to the original report-generating software, creation of templates in Docmosis - which can be as simple as a Word document - is the biggest plus for Docmosis. There is flexibility in laying out tables that is akin to UI front-end design. The PDF output option offered by Docmosis is… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Since our initial development, this feature has required very little maintenance. And when changes are requested, it is rather easy to change a Word document template and new staff can be quickly trained to modify a report. A new report’s template creation is very often manipulation of a user’s… more»

What needs improvement?

The challenge in usage when we developed the reports four years ago was the limited logic that can be applied to manipulate and display data. That functionality was largely transferred over to the database layer in creating the data output that was to be displayed.

What other advice do I have?

Development involves creating a template from user document requirements. In fact, the template in most cases can be a clone of the user document, with logic added for recursive or conditional data. We have been using a Word template for this purpose. An XML template sheet maps the database output… more»

What is most valuable?

The transition to LibreOffice was pretty easy after working with Microsoft Office. As a non-tech person, I have been able to contribute to the formatting of our LibreOffice templates which saves the tech staff from getting bogged down doing all the work. In total, we’ve got 17 templates with one fairly complex document template of at least 40 pages long which has a mixture of images, title pages… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Initially, we did HTML web page to PDF conversions of documents and that proved to be a lot of work with hard coding. We persevered for 12 months until it got beyond a certain point. We just didn’t have the flexibility in the formatting that we required. Then we found Docmosis which can do the PDF conversions for us. Now, we don’t even look back at doing it any other way.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No, this was the first PDF converter engine we installed. We had done significant research prior to committing to Docmosis and we strongly believe this has paid off.
