Email Invoices, Statements and Payslips. Mail Merge PDF Files and Reports

Are you familiar with the mail merge feature in Microsoft Word? This allows you to take a document template, like an invoice template report, push in a set of company names or some other data, and combine (merge) everything into a final list of personalized documents. You can also use mail merge for sending a customized email message to each of the intended recipients.

DocumentBurster software can be used to achieve the same for PDF reports. Using DocumentBurster it is even simpler to mail merge PDF reports. No report template is required and you can use DocumentBurster to email invoices, email statements, email payslips or to distribute your existing PDF reports. Do you currently generate PDF reports using Crystal Reports or any other report writer engine? Are you looking for an efficient, simple and secure method to email legacy PDF reports? DocumentBurster can automate all your report distribution requirements.

For the sake of example let’s say you are looking for a method to automate the distribution of payslips to employees.

Let’s assume you have generated one big PDF report (tens, hundreds or even thousands of pages), for all of the employees, containing all the payslips for the current month. Each separate page of the big report contains the payslip for a single employee. What you would like to do is to have this big report cleverly separated into multiple individual pieces, with each piece being a one (1) page PDF report containing the payslip of a single employee. You would also like the corresponding payslips to be securely distributed to the correct employees.

Is it difficult to achieve this requirement?

With DocumentBurster it is simple to email PDF reports; the scenario is supported almost out of the box. It only requires to include the corresponding email addresses into the pages of the input report, if this data is not already included in the report.

While the previous example demonstrated how to burst and email PDF payslips, DocumentBurster is very flexible and can process any type of business report.
