I need a Custom Printer Driver to capture or forward the printing jobs for my invoice printing application

Dear Sirs,

I've been asked from a customer a very specific request that I think can be
accomplished by you with a custom application or driver.

The goal is the following:

  • An application (can be any accounting software) prints an invoice to a local or network printer
  • The document must not be really printed at this moment
  • There is the need to intercept this printout, analyze the content and grab some fields (it is an invoice, we need to find out some fields such as date, invoice number and total amount)
  • The grabbed fields must be sent to another application (via API, via files or other method) and wait for a result code / signature
  • Once the result code is received, it must be added to the original printout in an empty area both as a QR code and literally
  • The modified printout is sent to the printer

I need following functions:

  • It can be a custom printer driver to be installed on the system in which it is possible to configure / select the printer to which the printout is finally printed. So the accounting application sets as printer the custom driver.
  • Or, the program can monitor a specific selected printer and do the job
  • Note that the printout can have multiple pages (for long invoices)
  • A configuration tool should be developed for selecting the position of the fields to be grabbed and the position for the QR Code to be added to the print output.
  • The target OS is Windows 10 x64.
  • We can set some limitations if needed

Please let me know if it is something you are able to do and an idea of costs.

Thanks for your attention and best regards,
Customer
