Easy document generation

Challenge

When working with Microsoft Word, you may often need to employ resources such as data tables, templates, emoticons, and so on. Rather than using built-in resources, the client sought to create a bespoke plug-in that could offer a variety of customized templates, emojis, and unique data tables to utilize in the file fitting exactly with industry rules. Developing such solution without affecting quality and consistency was quite a challenge for the developers.
