Automated company brochures!
As we’re a multi-disciplined agency, me (Darren) being a developer (albeit a rusty one), I noticed a repetition of tasks in what we were doing, and the little grey cells began to fire.
Within a quote lots of the pages; About us, Terms of sale, Team profile etc. were the same from quote to quote. Some parts of the document have to be individually written, the Price, Timescales, Requirements etc. but the text changes involved were minimal and most of our effort went into making the document ‘look pretty’.
An idea formed in my head… can we have a web page with a small number of input fields, that, when saved produces a high-quality PDF we are able to send to clients – reducing the time to produce a proposal from around an hour, to under 15 minutes.
The answer was yes, we could.
