What can you use the app for?

DocRaptor enables users to create full XLS and PDF documents with basic HTML. The application simplifies the process by replacing tedious Java development with simple HTML coding. The system is web based so users do not have to install or download anything. The data is also kept secure so professionals can use DocRaptor with confidence.
