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.
Adobe Document Generation API allows you to take your JSON data and easily merge it to create PDF or Word documents. As this functionality is quite similar to the other solutions already mentioned, let's dive into some pros and cons of this solution. It offers mostly the similar functionality as PDF Generator API, naming the hiding of components, multiple pages, custom fonts. It lacks the ability to embed the editor into your own application and you are not able to use version control of your template, limitations also apply in their export/import capability. The main difference is that you are paying per generated document, (0,05$ per one) and it is not possible to have an on-premise solution.
It seems the PDF customization and generation tools market is quite abundant and there are many companies battling it out for the attention of customers. However, we also see that PDF Generator API has some features that are unmatched by any of the other platforms. Among other features, we are the only ones that offer our clients support video calls and last, but not least - we are by far the most cost competitive platform among the whole bunch. Not to mention, the most technically capable. So please - do check out PDF Generator API and sign up for the 3-month, no obligation sandbox account!
