Feature comparison

As we were scouring the web for some potential competitors for PDF Generator API, we came across four platforms with similar features. Here is our take on what makes PDF Generator API stand out from the crowd.

According to Docspring, their solution makes it easy for developers to fill out PDF forms. While sporting many of the same features as PDF Generator API, Docspring does not have the capability to conditionally hide pages, iterate over a list of items nor conditionally format and hide components. Furthermore, Docspring does not offer using the same templates across different workspaces or template versioning. Using Docspring will set you back $49/1000 merges.

Formstack allows you to automate manual processes, deliver solutions quicker, and go from idea to workflow in minutes—all with clicks, not code—using their workplace productivity platform. One of the key features of PDF Generator API is its drag and drop template editor, which makes it a winner in the game. While Formstack does, similarly to PDF Generator API, offer versioning and restoration of templates, it lacks one of the much requested deployment possibilities of PDF Generator API - on-prem deployment. In times of massive data breaches popping up here and there almost weekly, many corporates are looking for solutions that can be deployed onto their own infrastructure. Formstack comes with a rather hefty price tag of $92/150 merges per month.

DocRaptor is the only API powered by the Prince HTML-to-PDF engine and provides powerful support for headers, page breaks, page numbers, flexbox, watermarks, accessible PDFs and more. What makes it different from PDF Generator API is the fact that it is HTML-based and does not incorporate a drag-and-drop template editor. DocRaptor also lacks the ability to embed the editor into the client's own application and conditionally hide pages or format components. It also does not provide the possibility to edit template definitions or components via the API. As also the previous competitor, corporates have to look at other solutions if they would like to opt for on-prem deployment. DocRaptor is priced at $15/125merges.

Eledo helps its users to automate their document creation processes, save time on repetitive tasks, and streamline their workflows. While all of the above-mentioned platforms support using background images on document templates, Eledo does not. Where Eledo does stand out is its ability to conditionally format and hide components and iterate over a list of items. However, Eledo does not allow you to use background images on your document templates. What also gives Eledo a competitive edge over the other competitors is the fact that they are ready to help you with the initial template setup while still evaluating the product. We applaud that! Eledo is available at a price of $6.9/200 merges.
