No special software is necessary on your web server.  The PDF Forms Filler for Contact Form 7 plugin uses WordPress core functions and the Pdf.Ninja web API to fill PDF forms (subscription may be necessary for commercial usage).  However, if you need all filling to be done directly on your web server, the Enterprise Extension plugin is also available.
