Automated document creation is a powerful way to streamline your business processes and make it easier to create great-looking documents. Automated document creation software takes the hassle out of creating proposals, quotes, contracts, invoices and more so you can focus on what matters most—growing your business.

You may not know it, but you and your business are producing documents all day, every day.

  • All businesses produce documents in some form or another. They might be printable or digital, but they’re still a vital part of how business works.
  • There are many different types of documents: from marketing collateral like brochures and flyers to financial reports and legal agreements—just to name a few!
  • Documents can be created manually or automatically (with software). Some people prefer working by hand because they enjoy the creative process; others would rather let their computer do the work for them so that they can focus on other priorities such as client meetings or running errands during lunch breaks. If you choose manual document creation over automated methods—either way is fine! Just make sure that whatever method suits your style best gets done consistently.

It's easy to make your documents look good when they're created by automation tools.

Automated document creation tools are designed to make the process of creating documents easy and efficient. They're built to be simple intuitive tools that anyone can use without too much trouble.

This is a huge advantage for you as it means you don't have to spend time learning how to use a new tool before you get started, or figuring out how your new template works. You just click, enter some information and boom: done! And when you're done with one document simply change the content, tweak the design or structure a little bit and create another one – it's that easy.

Automated document creation software features

Automated document creation software allows you to create documents quickly and easily. The software gives you the ability to design and publish documents that look professional. It can be used for internal and external communications, marketing materials and sales documents, contracts and more.

The great thing about automated document creation software is that it doesn't lock you into one style or template; instead, it provides a library of templates and content blocks with different designs so that your documents always look fresh and current.

Your automation tool creates documents.

The automation tool creates the document, not the content. It is not a word processor or text editor that you can use to write paragraphs and sentences. The tool will do all of the formatting for you, but it won't create the content and fill in all of those tedious details that make up an entire document.

Instead, an automation tool processes what it's told to do by reading data from one or more sources, fills in some blanks with information from those sources, adds pre-defined formatting elements like headers and footers, maybe even includes a few graphics or tables (if needed), saves everything as an individual document —and then waits for your next instruction to share or save!

PandaDoc is one simple document generation solution.

  • Create a template in Microsoft Word or Google Docs.
  • Upload your document to PandaDoc (or create it from scratch in PandaDoc).
  • Add interactive fields to your document template.
  • Review and edit the document options for your template. Be sure to include any required fields for the recipient, who will need to fill out all of these before receiving their order confirmation email from PandaDoc.
  • Test your Automated Document Template!
