What Is a Layout Mapping?


Customers and suppliers usually have a fixed layout for their orders, delivery bills, invoices, and other documents. PDF-Mapper remembers for each layout where to find the different data, how to prepare and validate the data, and how to recognize the sender. This is defined once for each business partner in a layout mapping.

After the one-time layout mapping, each PDF document can be read automatically. The content of the documents can of course change, as can the number of item positions, for example.

Layout mapping can be performed in PDF-Mapper itself or ordered as a service (e.g., as part of our Quickstart service for new customers).
