Fdata Document Builder is a powerful tool that builds templates from sections. This allows you to assemble a variety of documents (templates) from prewritten blocks of text (sections) that are stored in the Fdata Document Builder document repository. For example, Fdata Document Builder would allow you to quickly and easily assemble contracts for a variety of employees, such as office workers, construction workers, and managers, from prewritten clauses that are specific to each employee type.

Fdata Document Builder can also be used to create cases, patient records, quotes, certificates and many other documents. This saves time, increases accuracy and creates documents that are professional and consistent across your organization.

Note:
Currently, sections (blocks of text) appear in the template in the order that they were added to the database. In future releases of the Fdata Document Builder, sections will appear in the order that you add them to the template.
