Before data can be formatted and presented electronically, it must be transformed from a print or database format into a web-enabled document. Lanvera's advanced technology group helps you select the best web delivery approach for your eStatements/web invoices. Two primary methods of document web presentment
have surfaced as standards - Adobe PDF and XML / HTML.
We serve a variety of industries including banks, credit
unions, oil & gas, healthcare and general invoicing.
Adobe PDF: Exact Image of Printed Documents:
Companies that require an exact image of the
/ invoice should strongly consider Lanvera's transformed PDF
format. Lanvera, using special software tools, combines pre-printed
paper, front / back printing, multiple form overlays, logos
and special fonts to duplicate the exact image, including
color, of what is mailed - not your original input stream.
The PDF file of your eStatement is then indexed based on your search criteria, (typically invoice number, account number and name) for fast on-line retrieval.
Advantages of Lanvera's Transformed PDF Format are:
- The image is exactly what is printed. Your customers will be more comfortable electing electronic delivery knowing there is one document -- mailed or electronic.
- PDF format has become the standard format for on-line document delivery. Acrobat Reader is available on virtually any platform and is a free download.
- PDF format contains all Windows print handling characteristics so invoice and statement printing is easy to any local Windows printer including "fit to page" capabilities.
- PDF files capture the image at a point in time - a "picture"
of what was received by the customer. "Built on the fly"
database views change with changes made to underlying database
tables affecting historical views.
- Fonts, logos, electronic forms and graphic images can
be embedded in the PDF eliminating any client side software,
fonts or applets, virtually eliminating tech support issues.
- PDF documents are files, so individual PDF documents
can be eMailed, faxed, printed or archived to other media.
- PDF is considered a legal substitute for an original
in many states making PDF a great archiving format.
XML / HTML for Transaction Presentation:
For customers that prefer storing transactions for display
by date selectivity or prefer on-line templates by customer,
customer type or product line, Lanvera provides an XML / HTML
solution for browser display.
The Advantages of XML / HTML are:
- Data is stored in a database format so storage requirements
are much smaller than PDF image files that include embedded
fonts and graphics.
- Statement /
generation is "built on the fly"
using on-line templates for data presentation. Easy to build
templates make different presentations by customer, customer
type or product type relatively simple.
- Rules based processing allows easy implementation of
dynamic messaging or specific client data.
- Statements / Invoices that contain large numbers of pages
are much faster with " page at a time" display using HTML.
PDF file sizes grow as the number of pages grows, adding
to customer download times.

Statement / Invoice History:

or 24 months will reduce customer service calls asking for
copies of old documents. Lanvera will provide the right amount
of history for your company, including conversion of prior
Eliminating mailing costs with eStatements saves money but
also eliminates the ability to market to customers using envelope
inserts. Lanvera will scan marketing inserts, newsletters
or other promotional materials for on-line presentation along
with your e-statements or invoices. In fact, Lanvera will
customize our web-hosting software to present any link or
document you wish to present to your customers.
Lanvera recognizes that our customers make investments of
time and programming to transition to e-statements and at
some point may want to host and/or transform the data in-house.
Lanvera will assist you, at any time, to move to in-house
hosting making sure there is no disruption in your services.
