Automate document assembly with GroupDocs.Assembly for .NET

GroupDocs.Assembly for .NET provides a comprehensive toolkit, complete with UI, for working with document assembly. It speeds up document assembly and automation. Your users can add form fields to existing document templates (contracts, NDAs, applications, any range of documents) and send them to recipients to fill in. Merging template and recipient data, GroupDocs automatically generates a custom document that looks just like the original template.
