Best of The Exari Blog, Part 5
About this series: The Exari team has worked for nearly five years to make this blog a complete resource for information about contracts and document assembly. With more than 180 published articles, we thought we would introduce our newer readers to the most popular articles from the archive.
The year 2010 marks the 10th anniversary of Exari’s founding in Melbourne, Australia (officially, December, 1999). Back then, Exari’s founders saw the potential for XML to deliver a more powerful, controlled approach to automated contract drafting, and in 2001 Exari released the world’s first online document assembly system built on Java and XML.
Today, Exari is the only enterprise document automation solution that can easily automate all documents across the business document spectrum from highly complex to interactive to high volume communications.

But anyone who tells you that it is simple (presumably by consuming whatever snake oil they are selling) is lying. Some document composition tasks are, by their very nature, highly complex, and some will make your head hurt. The challenge is to find the simplest and most effective way of dealing with them, so that you can fully reap the rewards of automation. Which begs two obvious question: what do we mean by complexity and does it affect your documents?…read full post
