Nuance Communications recently released the Power PDF 2 software, which allows businesses to easily gain control over PDF workflows.
According to the company, Power PDF 2 addresses the growing need for businesses to support touch-enabled hybrid devices, which is commonly used in the workplace today. It enables users to navigate, draw annotations and type using a tablet or notebook and a pen or finger whether they are in the office or on the go.
The modern, intuitive user interface of Power PDF 2 is modeled after the latest Microsoft ribbon interface, which allows users to work with the same navigation experience they have in Microsoft Office. The interface includes a "find a tool" search capability that enables users to quickly find any tool or functionality in the application. The enhanced Quick Access Toolbar allows users to create shortcuts to frequently used functions.
The software also allows users to collaborate and securely share PDF files with others. It provides tools needed to annotate, mark up, sign, secure, redact and compress PDFs, and create and work with PDF forms, making it easy to edit and publish PDF files.
"The current IT landscape demands that organisations be flexible when it comes to supporting the work habits, workflows and unique industry challenges faced by their knowledge workers," said Chris Strammiello, Vice President of global alliances and strategic marketing, Nuance Document Imaging.
"To operate efficiently and competitively, organisations must be able to adopt and provide solutions that are easy to integrate, intuitive to use, and free from onerous deployment restrictions or licensing costs. Power PDF 2 is purpose built for business use and integration into today's organisations," he added.
Catering to individuals, home offices and small workgroups, Power PDF Standard 2 retails for S$155. Meanwhile, Power PDF Advanced 2 is going at S$235. Both solutions are available through Nuance's global network of reseller, retail and ecommerce partners.
