Papyrus Business Designer

Product Description

Papyrus Business Designer enables business administrator teams to work and collaborate in a WYSIWYG drag & drop fashion, using intuitive GUIs, to design business documents from reusable document elements. This guarantees a substantial time reduction throughout the whole document design phase. Users handle change requests directly in a fast and managed way.

The smart design approach enables consolidation with a modular, cross-channel document design (AFP/PDF/HTML) for all personalized output an organization has. Document templates and resources are defined only once, irrespective of document type, batch, online, ad hoc or interactive for any needed output channel.

Business Designer leverages the Business Correspondence Framework Solution delivered as standard framework with the Papyrus WebRepository.
