PDF Form Filling & Flattening

PDF Tools AG

The PDF Form Filling & Flattening component is used to create, fill and delete form fields in PDF documents automatically and efficiently.

The component is addressed via the command line. This makes it possible to process PDF documents individually and in batches.

The component is designed to process large quantities of PDF documents automatically. Information is typically retrieved from a source such as a database to create personalized documents, or personalized information is extracted from forms for further processing.

Areas of Use

Creating Portable Forms:
Record customer-specific requirements on site in the field, for instance in the insurance sector, and convert them directly into binding PDF documents such as quotes or contracts. This means it is no longer necessary to first record the information manually on paper, convert it into electronic format at the workplace and then send it to the customer. These tasks are completed on site in a single step by a simple solution.

Automated Form Creation in the Server Environment:
Large quantities of forms require automated server-based processing. Form data can be retrieved from databases or directly from transactions such as input via an intranet or internet portal. Data is entered automatically into PDF forms which are saved as standard PDF documents for further processing.

Other Areas of Use:

  • Completing form fields in batch processing mode, e.g. compiling reports from a database
  • Reading out form fields, e.g. for transferring user data to a database
  • Personalizing documents by flattening form fields
