Software PDF Editing Businesses

>> Wednesday, March 24, 2010

By now, many businesses have caught on to the fact that using PDF files is a great way to keep information secure when disseminating documents. Introduced by Adobe, PDF stands for "Portable Document Format," and these files do just that-guarantee easy and accurate portability. Whether sending a document within a company, or sending it to another business, using a PDF format ensures that data will be kept secure, as PDFs easily support data encryption. Beyond these benefits, PDFs are very easy to create quickly, the conversion process taking almost no extra time. In addition to the security benefits of these types of documents, PDFs also allow companies to compress large files into easily transportable documents. But aside these advantages, what PDF files are largely appreciated for is their consistency. No matter what hardware or software the file is created in, what operating systems are running on the sender's or receiver's computers, PDF files reach their destination looking just as they are supposed to, with no question.

So with all of these benefits, how could there possibly be a downfall to using a PDF file for your most important documents? Ah, but there is-there's always a catch, right? In the case of using PDF files for transporting documents, editing is the catch. As far as most people concerned, PDF files are extremely difficult, if not downright impossible, to edit. In fact, by definition, these documents are not supposed to be easy to edit, given that they've made their name by boasting security and consistency benefits. However, given that the nature of business will require making changes to documents, and the fact that many documents are now sent in PDF format, this has caused a lot of time to be wasted on PDFs-which is ironic, considering that this format originally boasted quick conversion time as a benefit. If you know the person who originally created the document, this might not be such a complex problem, as you could easily reach out to them and ask for the original file. However, this is not the way things work in a business setting. With documents being passed from vendors to clients, from those clients to their fellow employees, and from those employees to business partners, the connection to the original document can be lost in a matter of minutes, while taking hours to uncover the source.

For cases like these, PDF editing software can offer a significant advantage. For example, take the case mentioned above. If a press release got passed from a vendor (A) to his client (B) who works on the marketing team, and from that marketing team member (B) to his boss (C), and from that boss (C)to her partner (D) whose company is also included in the release, and that partner (D) discovered that the original vendor (A) used the wrong logo image for her company, it will save the partner (D) a significant amount of time if she has PDF editing software and is able to instantly change the image. On the same note, PDF editing software allows users to easily make other changes such as fixing typos, reformatting the document, removing or adding text, and adding/editing links. So if your company uses PDF files, which it likely does, it is well worth it to look into a software program that allows you to edit the ever-elusive PDF file.
