New potential user - looking for guidance

Hi Folks,

I’m a PHP developer, looking for a solution for a client. I’m pleased to find Aspose, and it appears that Aspose can do what I want, but I’m a little lost with all the different flavors.

The project is as follows: For each of 200 customers, mail merge 6 different contracts in MS Word, save into PDF files and then combine into a single zip file for electronic delivery to each customer (200 zip files). I have 2 weeks to get this set up, but need to get going in the right direction ASAP.

  1. Is Aspose the right decision?
  2. Is Aspose Cloud the right Aspose product family?
  3. is Aspose Words sufficient, or do I need Total?
  4. How do I get started?
  5. Is this do-able in the timeframe needed, including learning curve.

Thanks

Jonathan
