Document assembly and automation company TheFormTool today released version 2.0 of its document-assembly software Doxserá. First launched in January, Doxserá is a Microsoft Word plug-in that simplifies the creation of multiple or repetitive documents, such as when preparing a company formation or bankruptcy filing.

Today’s upgrade adds the ability for documents to “create themselves” by intelligently selecting external text or graphics from multiple external sources and incorporate them into customized final documents. Here is how the company describes it:

Doxserá users can now enable a document to intelligently “create itself” from external libraries of text or graphics using new “Fetch” and “Folio” functions, and to select and simultaneously complete multiple documents with just a single data entry via its “Form Sets” feature. Doxserá is also capable of managing hundreds of math equations, thousands of variables, and hundreds of thousands of words in one or more documents.

Doxserá builds on the company’s core product, TheFormTool, but with a focus on multi-document automation. I reviewed TheFormTool in a 2012 post and again in 2013, when new features were added. Last November, I reviewed a beta version of Doxserá, when it was being called REACH.

With this latest version, the company is two-thirds of the way through its planned development of Doxserá. Sometime this summer, it plans to roll out version 3.0, which will be able to access information from databases such as SQL, Excel, CSV, and Outlook. All current subscribers will receive the upgrade.

A video showing the software’s features is available on this page.

An annual subscription to Doxserá is $89 per user, with volume discounts available for enterprise users.
