July 8, 2009 – Nuance Communications Inc. introduced Nuance PDF Converter Professional 6, the newest release of its flagship desktop PDF solution. Nuance finally allows organizations to replace Adobe Acrobat software by delivering a product that according to Nuance is one-third the cost, provides all of the rich features that organizations need to create, edit, convert and share PDF, and includes a range of document productivity and collaboration features not available from Adobe.
Nuance’s “Better PDF for Business” proposition comes at a time when businesses everywhere are looking for ways to rein in costs and increase efficiency.
With over three million seats of its PDF solutions deployed, Nuance has established itself as the premier provider of PDF desktop applications designed specifically for office environments. The new product builds on that momentum, adding unique features that bridge the gap between paper and digital document workflows – saving office workers significant time and expense, and accelerating green office initiatives.
First, new PDF Portfolios enable paperless collaboration, embedding file-types and folders – including PDF and Microsoft Office documents, and even images and videos – into a single PDF file with simple click and drag steps. Similarly, the unique Document Assembly feature in PDF Converter Professional 6 lets users drag and drop various file types into a PDF, and even renumber pages and edit headers and footers automatically within the newly assembled PDF document. A new PDF Auto-Pilot feature allows users to collapse multiple editing tasks into a single click.
PDF Converter Professional 6 also allows users to scan paper documents directly to PDF, saving time by eliminating the need to scan and then convert the resulting image. Users can choose to make scanned PDF files searchable or convert them to fully-formatted Microsoft Word or Excel documents, using the world’s most accurate optical character recognition (OCR) engine – Nuance’s OmniPage software – which is built into PDF Converter Professional 6. Nuance has also integrated Microsoft SharePoint and ECM connectivity directly into the Enterprise version of the product, making content management and discovery easier and more efficient. In addition, PDF Converter Professional 6 is the only PDF alternative to offer support for XFA forms, which are XML-enabled dynamic Web forms.
