What is PDF-eXPLODE?

PDF-eXPLODE is a specialized software tool, designed to convert your documents to PDF and distribute them to your clients/suppliers via email or web-based fax server whilst also archiving a copy of the PDF for easy retrieval when required in the future, thereby reducing the chore of filing - all with the press of your Print button.


Document Bursting  is a phrase many people use today. But what does it mean and how does  PDF-eXPLODE make document bursting even better

Document Bursting is a feature that runs a report only once yet delivers only selected output to different nominated destinations (or Report Users) based on preconfigured rules, greatly reducing processing times and manual human effort while still ensuring data security. PDF-eXPLODE takes Document or Report bursting to a new level by automatically delivering various sections of the report in PDF format, as an attachment to a customized email message. PDF-eXPLODE can archive the exploded report across several folders to multiple levels. 

For document bursting you just can't go past PDF-eXPLODE for price, service and speed of implementation. 

PDF-eXPLODE is software that automates the task of sending batches of Invoices, Statements, Paystubs and Payment advices or any business document.


What makes PDF-eXPLODE so easy to use?   It installs as a Windows's Printer enabling it to capture anything that would ordinarily print.

What makes PDF-eXPLODE so unique?   It will automatically burst (or explodes) the report output and then collate the report pages by destination, converting them to PDF and then attaching it to an email or even sending it to a hardware printer or just archiving the exploded PDF files to one or more folders as configured.  You will: 

  • save time and money on document processing
  • improve your cash flow
  • AND have spare time to yourself.


Once you have decided which documents will be sent out via PDF-eXPLODE, you can then decide on the list of rules to achieve your desired outcome when sending those documents (like where will the PDF copy be stored, what email message do you want or would you like to password protect the document, etc.). We refer to this as ‘Setup’.


For instance let’s automate Invoicing; based on the setup, you will make a modification to your report (e.g.: Invoice or Statement)  and then run the Invoices from your accounting software and hit the Print button, select the PDFeXPLODE printer  and you can then walk away from your computer or work on other items while PDF-eXPLODE does your mail out.
