So it’s Thursday afternoon and you’ve just wolfed down your tuna fish sandwich and cup of cold coffee from the morning. You dread sending 24 invoices to customers. Even if you use email, a word processor and PDF you’ve got to do it one by one – attach, email, attach, email.
Of course if you use Quick Books or some other financial program, they often have built in tools to make it easier to create invoices but sending them is still a royal pain.
PDF-eXPLODE, of The Outbox Inc, has a real cool solution.
Simply with the click of the printer button, PDF-eXPLODE e-mails individualized documents and reports in secure PDF format to each customer, vendor or employee in a single batch. And used in combination with a scheduler, it allows for true hands-free delivery. So businesses will no longer have to print, stuff, collate and stamp mailings – or send out e-mails one by one.
PDF-eXPLODE functions as a Windows printer and works with most existing software. It captures a report or a document being printed and, instead of printing it, converts it to a master PDF.
It then “explodes”, or bursts, the master PDF into individual PDF attachments and sends them based on e-mail address tags embedded in the original report or document. These tags identify where the PDF attachment is to be sent and the subject/message to be used. Documents can be sent to multiple recipients, and multiple documents for the same recipient are combined into a single PDF, streamlining communications.
PDF-eXPLODE can distribute individual PDF attachments through various communications channels. In addition to sending through e-mail, it can send documents to shared network folders for employees to view. In the near future, PDF-eXPLODE will have the capability to send PDF documents to FTP sites for Web publishing.
PDF-eXPLODE costs $349 per license and is licensed to a specific computer. A free 30-day trial version also is available.
