ASPOSE as an alternative to VSTO programming


I work in a consultancy company and we are trying to help a customer with a product development. Currently they have developed a Microsoft Word AddIn with VSTO that performs kind of document customization depending on what the user types in. They have defined content controls with fields inside to connect them with values they extract from a back-end database. For example the user opens a document from a predefined template and types in a person id number. The VSTO Addin detects that and searches that information in the database, completing the document.

So, they use Word as a surface for user interaction with the back-end systems.

They are currently experiencing a lot of problems with the Word Interaction, memory leaks, problems printing images, etc, and we are studing to propose diffrente alternatives to do the same thing, but without word.

The cuestion is, is ASPOSE an alternative for such an approach?
