Mimotek Structuriser ZUGFeRD
Building on their experience of extracting content from PDF files, and of PDF manipulation in general, Mimotek is developing a new tool that creates ZUGFeRD/Factur-X files from PDF invoices. The starting point is a plain PDF invoice file. The interactive software analyses the document, making the content accessible to the operator who associates the various data values with the XML tags that are defined in ZUGFeRD/Factur-X schema. Once the xml tags have been populated, the XML invoice is created and embedded in the PDF. Finally, the PDF is made compliant with the PDF/A-3 specification and the required metadata is added, to create a valid ZUGFeRD/Factur-X invoice.
The software can also be configured as an add-on to existing financial systems, in which case it automatically embeds an XML invoice in the PDF invoice and ensures that the result is a valid ZUGFeRD file.
This tool will be useful for organisations who receive or generate PDF invoices that must be converted to ZUGFeRD/Factur-X, and is currently in beta testing.
