Anvil for HR tech

Easily build scalable employee onboarding experiences

HR techs use Anvil to launch customized digital workforce management solutions. Quickly build mobile-friendly, multi-lingual Workflows to complete new hire forms and update records.
The challenge

difficult for companies to build a delightful and streamlined digital experience

for both the employee and employer.

The solution

A single, developer-forward platform that

captures reusable structured-data, prepares documents and collects e-signatures

. Anvil's pre-built library of components can be easily assembled and integrated to accelerate software development for any paperwork process.

Is Anvil customizable?

Yes. Anvil can dynamically determine which questions are asked in a webform and which PDFs get filled, style the entire form filling experience with CSS, determine the order in which e-signatures are elicited, and even format the output of the final documents. If you find something not customizable, let us know.

How does Anvil help my team build and scale faster?

Paperwork is table-stakes for many businesses but carries an opportunity cost for developers working on core, differentiated features. Our SDK jumpstarts the software development process for documents so you can launch new products faster, saving your engineers months of document-related development time.

How much is Anvil relative to building it all in-house?

It depends on a number of variables (such as the number of developers resourced for building in-house, their salaries, etc.), but we’ve observed customers reducing costs, including time saved, on the order of 3x up to 10x.

Can Anvil be used to complete government forms?

Government forms such as the I-9 or W-4 are right within Anvil's wheelhouse. These forms are standardized and often available as fillable forms that can be easily used to create templates for filling over API or as part of a Workflow. Anvil has many of these forms already built as document templates that can be easily copied to get started.

Government forms often get updated every year. Rather than having to create an entirely new template, Anvil allows you to easily swap out the underlying form but keep your fillable configuration.

Can Anvil be used to complete non fillable PDFs?

Anvil makes it easy to add validated, fillable fields to any PDF with a simple drag and drop UI either as standalone templates or in the Workflow builder. Anvil's builders also support text tags, allowing you to create templated PDFS from .docx files.

Can existing information be used to pre-fill or complete forms in Anvil?

Anvil Workflows allow you to pre-fill Webforms with your own structured data in addition to any new data you need to collect from employees and/or employers. This can be done over API or with no-code UI URLS and Zapier. One or more Webforms can contribute to a set of documents in an Anvil Workflow.

What if I have multiple documents that need to be generated?

Anvil Workflows can fill multiple documents from a single submission of data. If information is replicated across documents (such as employee name, address, etc.) you only need to provide or request that information once. Anvil Workflows also allow you to add document selection logic to determine which documents should be filled and included in the Workflow output.

Can I collect one signature for multiple documents?

With Anvil Workflows, a single signature (from any number of signers) can be applied to an entire set of completed forms.
