DocumentBurster can burst, split and email reports for Microsoft Excel 2010, 2007, 2003, 2002, 2000 and Excel 97. You can read the Burst and Email Excel Reports documentation here.
You need to burst a different email subject, email body or PDF file name for invoices
and a different set of email configurations for the statements? Using the new Configuration Templates you can easily define custom email messages for all your different report types no matter if you send invoices, statements, payslips, purchase orders, school and student reports or «You Name It» any other report type. You can read the Configuration Templates documentation here.
You are now probably quite happy with how DocumentBurster is distributing hundreds or maybe thousands of reports to your customers. And there is no reason for you not to be happy. DocumentBurster was all the time a reliable piece of software. Still, one of our customers once said:
“I’m concerned with sending misdirected mass email.”
This valid concern was the clue that it can be done even better.
When dealing with reports and financial documents, misdirected mass email is a legitimate concern which people might have before deciding to implement an automated report delivery system. DocumentBurster‘s quality assurance mechanism is the new tool intended to address exactly this concern, thus greatly reducing the risk and increasing the confidence of doing mass report distribution. You can read the Quality Assurance documentation here.
4. Improved FTP, FTPS, SFTP/SSH/SCP, HTTP/WebDAV, File Share report upload capabilities
Uploading support for reports is not something new to DocumentBurster. What is new is that we simplified the configuration and we did it straightforward. You can read the FTP, FTPS, SFTP/SSH/SCP, HTTP/WebDAV, File Share documentation here.
DocumentBurster can be configured to upload reports to Microsoft SharePoint enabled portals. You can read the DocumentBurster SharePoint Upload documentation here.
Using DocumentBurster it is possible to implement conditional report delivery. While bursting the reports, DocumentBurster can check and can distribute only the pieces which meet a specified user defined condition and can be configured to skip the delivery for the reports which fail to meet the condition. You can read the Conditional Report Distribution documentation here.
Did you ever have to batch print PDF documents? DocumentBurster can be configured to automate and batch print PDF reports.
Use Case Example for Batch Printing PDF Documents
“We purchased a printer which can staple documents. The main reason we chose to do this was for our invoice printing. Here is the situation:
We have two (2) copies for each invoice and we need to staple the copies together. We send both copies out for delivery, one gets signed for and returned to our offices and the other stays with our customer. We are printing many invoices each night so automating this stapler capability can save a decent amount of office labor.”
In order to automate the above scenario, DocumentBurster can be configured to batch print PDF invoices which will get stapled by the printer. Both copies of the same invoice will be sent as a separate print job so they will get stapled together. Further more, all the invoices will be processed in a single and automated flow which can be scheduled to happen during the night. You can read how DocumentBurster can Batch Print PDF Documents here.
We continuously update DocumentBurster to:
- Keep the software up to date with the latest features, performance improvements or fixes for all the issues raised by our customers
- Keep DocumentBurster software compatible with the latest operating systems versions like Microsoft Windows 7 or Microsoft Windows 8
- Keep DocumentBurster software compatible with the latest versions of Adobe PDF or Microsoft Excel files specifications
As you can see DocumentBurster got a good number of new features in the latest versions. Each new feature was implemented starting from a real customer need. We are pretty confident these are useful features and we hope you will find the same.
