Precise product configuration and sales documents made easy

You can ensure that your documents always reflect your product configurator with 100% accuracy. Simply connect your product configurator with ActiveDocs software, and generate your sales and product documents programmatically.

The latest wording of all relevant descriptions, and all associated product parameters, will be included automatically – this means you no longer need to worry about precision in all your communications!

Quality management documentation

From presenting measurements in a report form, to maintaining the full body of your ISO 9000 series or other quality management certifications – we can help you ensure that your documentation meets the highest standards.

Generate and maintain your content with confidence, without losing the flexibility to customize it as needed. Reports can contain individual item data, or consolidated data per batch or a given period. Because our software lets you make edits in one place, keeping your quality management certification documents updated is more accurate, and takes less time.

Product experts maintain the content

Your product experts, and other subject matter experts, can create and maintain document content and its automation. No need to rely on help from the IT team.

All source content in ActiveDocs is managed in Microsoft Word, as are all layers of automation. If you use Microsoft Word, that means your team are already familiar with that environment, and should be able to jump straight into automation. Similarly, your documents can likely be imported straight into the software.

Creating accurate documents for your clients can be easy and flexible with document automation.
