Xenos announces XML2PDF Merge

Xenos announced that it has developed XML2PDF Merge. It provides automated online merging of XML formatted data into PDF documents for Internet distribution, viewing and printing. Insurance and financial services companies require fast, simple, on-line solutions for their agents and customers to access and complete forms in real-time for policy and account applications, quotes, requests for information or trade confirmations. Xenos XML2PDF Merge provides an answer to these requirements. XML2PDF Merge implements ACORD forms standards. In a typical insurance application process, a customer meets with an insurance agent to purchase a new policy. The agent, connected to the insurance company’s network, fills out an application for the customer by entering all the required data on a Web form. This data is captured in XML format by the insurance company, processed and approved. Xenos XML2PDF Merge software fills in the fields on the PDF form with the appropriate XML data. The PDF document is then immediately returned to the agent over the Internet.
