WebMerge API vs. PandaDoc API feature comparison table
|Embedded Signing and Sending|
|Sandbox API||Test mode|
API – short for Application Programming Interface – give developers a set of coding instructions that can expedite the customization and integration of apps such as the merging of document data into applications. In the case of WebMerge (https://www.webmerge.me) and PandaDoc, the API lets you build on the basic functionality of the two solutions and to optimize their utility within your organization. Both companies offer REST APIs, which represent state of the art technology for this kind of coding interface, but the PandaDoc API offers considerably more fine-tuned functionality to customize and personalize your document workflow.
Both companies allow you to customize your documents to include elements like logos, images, corporate colors, and fonts so that you can stay on-brand. The PandaDoc API provides a significantly richer set of controls than WebMerge so if branding is important for your organization, you’ll want to take this into account.
Embedded sign and send
Typically companies offer the ability to embed electronic signatures within third-party applications, and the PandaDoc API functionality is far superior to that of WebMerge API. The REST interface allows developers to embed robust paperless eSignatures and sending functionality into existing workflows and software like CRM and other sales and marketing software tools.
PandaDoc and WebMerge distinguish themselves by providing an unlimited number of templates for expediting form and document creation. That means you don’t need to start from scratch when you want to create a new doc: you can simply modify an existing template. However, at the API level, PandaDoc allows templates to be edited programmatically on the server side rather than being modified on a one-off basis by end-users.
