eDoc Suite

eDoc Suite is a set of Microsoft Office add-ins for Word, Excel & PowerPoint that lets you use your data in MS Office with ease.

The Challenge

Every organization has business data available in a number of databases & systems. This data is normally available through reports and web dashboards, but it is difficult to access and use this data directly from within Microsoft Office Documents.

Users are forced to manually create excel tables and/or copy paste data manually into documents and presentations. Obviously, when the data changes, the documents are no longer correct.

Also, while Excel tables are useful for creating flat lists, they are not very effective when dealing with master/detail datasets and where formatting flexibility is needed.

The Solution

eDoc Toolbar is your solution for creating freely formatted documents combined with complex tables based on data from various data sources. You can source your data either directly from databases, from SharePoint or from web services: we call these data sources data lists.

You can use a combination of Excel tables, Excel Graphs and complex master/detail Word tables with flexible formatting. You can even create a master table from a data list from one database and a nested table, linked to the master, from a data list coming from a completely different database.

And that’s not all, the eDoc Toolbar takes care of the content sync as well. You can set your data update options to automatically update the data list content whenever you open the document or with one click of a button; the eDoc Toolbar does the rest.

Generate Your Documents in A Few Steps

Generating data connected documents has never been so easy.

You can create your own document for individual use (and share it with your colleagues or clients) or you can create a document template and use it for generating personalized documents just like Mail Merge.
