With 4 different editions available, there’s an AutoDoc to suit every need

Lite, Standard, Server, Enterprise.

AutoDoc HSE is available in four separate versions, each designed to improve the way you deliver your documents and save you money in the process. Listed below is a brief description of each version and its key applications, and the Feature Comparison allows for an easy check of whether specific functionality differs between versions.

You will also find that AutoDoc HSE is possibly the most competitively priced product on the market, with most applications offering this functionality starting well above our Enterprise version, with extra cost for the functions we include as standard. There is also an easy upgrade path between all versions, which means AutoDoc HSE can grow with you as your needs change. See the Price List for details.

If you are already using an earlier, non-HSE AutoDoc product (for example, AutoDoc 1.0 or AutoDoc 2.0), you may like to see how the new AutoDoc HSE product compares to earlier products.

Lite

Single User Automated document delivery for Home or Small Business. The Lite edition provides the core functions required to achieve automated document delivery, without the load handling capacities of larger versions.

The Lite edition includes powerful context-sensitive delivery capabilities, and the ability to use document text in the delivery itself.

Server

Designed for network installations, the Server edition is ideal for the small to mid-sized operation with more complex delivery requirements, or needing a server-based solution. The Server edition comes with 5 network users initially, and can be expanded to a maximum of 20.

It also includes support for XLS, XLT and TXT type attachments in emails, and the number of variables available during processing is extended to 20 per form.

Standard

Ideal for the Small Business with more form requirements or RAW/PCL support. Includes support for DOS based printing from older applications and also non Windows-based applications such as Linux or AS/400.

Still limited to single a user, but with many of the functions of the higher versions.

Enterprise

Offering document delivery efficiencies for larger organisations, the Enterprise edition caters for heavy print loads, and supports the extra complexity in configuration required by an organisation with more users and a wider variety of outputs.

Features unlimited users, maximum number of forms extended to 99, XML archiving and attachments, multi-thread operation and the ability to add additional ‘virtual printers’ make this the Flagship AutoDoc HSE product.

Number of forms
Determines the number of distinct combinations of preconfigured delivery settings you can store. For example, one form may store settings to email the document, CC the document to another user, fax the document, and create a PDF to archive in a certain location, while another form specifies that the document should only be emailed, and not CC’d to another user.

Number of variables
Determines how many discrete pieces of document text (‘strings’) AutoDoc HSE can dynamically store to use in the delivery content. e.g. an invoice may contain a customer’s name, and the invoice total. Both these pieces of information could be reproduced dynamically in the body of the email, by using two AutoDoc HSE variables to store the information.
