Document Automation

Electronic documents are the lifeblood of modern business, and the effective management of them is essential to how your organization runs, performs and delivers. Within regulated organizations, these management processes are structured, well-defined and must be adhered to in all instances. Deviations from the processes not only cause errors, but can result in large fines or costly delays.

Redesign, optimize, and automate document-centric business processes with GCI Document Automation

You need the ability to create agreements, proposals, presentations, policies, standard operating procedures, or quality documentation quickly and effectively. Often these documents are combinations of fragments, phrases, graphics, and/or other documents.

Four steps to successful document creation

The Global Cents solution for document automation collects, compiles and publishes all the files you need within a few clicks directly within the Content Suite and Extended ECM platforms. By taking advantage of the powerful and robust feature set of the GCI PowerTools Suite, we enable you to automate your document creation in a secure, fast and efficient manner.

We accomplish this through four simple yet effective steps:


The Global Cents suite automatically finds and collects relevant files that are required to make the assembled document, taking the data needed to locate these from SAP, another ERP system, or elsewhere. You can even select exactly what you need from a checklist made available within Content Suite. It then delivers them to a workflow which routes them for an initial review, and compares the documents gathered to identify any files that are still missing.


You can add or adjust pagination, signing and other options. You’ll also be able to adjust common formatting variables, such as font, color, size, style and the general layout and design, including headers, footers, chapters, terms of conditions and watermarks.


Once all the documents are collected, they are collated and a template is used to set cover pages, headers, footers, etc. The Table of Contents is auto-generated and reflects the document order.


Once the content has been selected and the structure and formatting finalized, the individual documents are rendered into an output file ready for external use in one or more PDF volumes. Global Cents’ solution for document automation allows users to completely automate this process.
