To provide greater support for the generation of complex documents and to simplify the design and development of the document automation process, Qorus Software, a provider of document automation solutions for Microsoft (News - Alert) Office 365 and SharePoint, has launched its revamped document automation platform for SharePoint, Qorus DocGeneration.
When using Qorus DocGeneration, organizations gain access to document automation functionality natively in SharePoint and Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. This function enables users to design smart templates that dynamically merge with live data stored in SharePoint lists, CRM systems and virtually any enterprise system.
Some of the major enhancements debuted in the latest release of Qorus DocGeneration include calculated tags and easily configurable sorting and filtering to support the addition of dynamically generated tables, as well as full support for SharePoint Business Connectivity Services.
“With these latest enhancements, we’ve focused on making it possible to support the generation of even more complex documents than ever before,” said Ray Meiring, CEO of Qorus Software, in a statement. “The new calculated tags feature enables authors to create tables that automatically calculate values, such as pricing, upon generation of the end document based on pre-determined business rules. Authors can also have more freedom in determining how content is displayed in dynamically generated tables using our new sorting and filtering feature for tables.”
Merring further added, “While we’ve catered for the generation of more complex documents, we’ve also made the actual design and development process more efficient. The calculated tags feature not only makes it possible to calculate values on the fly, it also makes it possible to bundle multiple data tags that are commonly used together into one tag (News - Alert) grouping. This saves template designers time and effort in the design process. From a development perspective, our support now of SharePoint Connectivity Services means developers are able to re-use what’s already there in terms of links to data sources being pulled via SharePoint lists, instead of relying on web services to establish a direct link to those data sources”.
