Berlin. Foxit Europe GmbH, the European PDF Center of Excellence, is announcing the release of Version 8.1 of its powerful PDF editor, PhantomPDF. Thanks to its robustness, its comprehensive scope of functionality and its attractive licensing model, it makes an attractive alternative to other PDF editors. The latest version, now available in German and other European languages, now also includes ConnectedPDF functionality. This technology increases user productivity when creating, sharing and tracking PDF documents and also simplifies collaboration from anywhere in the world.

With 425 million users worldwide, and over 100,000 customers, Foxit is one of the leading providers of fast, cost-effective and secure PDF software solutions. Its PhantomPDF product is a user-friendly PDF editor which can be put to use at a moment’s notice, offering a comprehensive scope of functions at an affordable price. These functions include tools to collaborate on and create, edit, annotate, approve, encrypt, organize, export and sign PDF documents and forms, as well as to identify text within them using OCR. PhantomPDF complies with ISO standard 32000 / PDF 1.7 and works with all existing PDF documents and forms. The solution is easy and cost-effective to use, offering an attractive total cost of ownership (TCO) with a rapid return on investment (ROI).

PhantomPDF is available in two different versions designed for different applications: PhantomPDF Standard offers extensive PDF functionality to start with, including editing functions to change text, add elements, remove forms, and more. Thanks to OCR support, users can convert individually scanned or image-based content into searchable text. Comprehensive security functionality protects documents using password- and certificate-based encryption as well as digital signatures. The company’s flagship product, PhantomPDF Business, also adds additional editing and security functionality, as well as file compression and the ability to create PDF/A, /E and /X files.

The new Version 8.1 of PhantomPDF includes ConnectedPDF functionality, using the ISO standard for PDFs to attach a unique ID to all PDF files. Users can then use the power of the cloud to ensure constant access to their PDF documents. This allows them to more easily track and approve their documents. ConnectedPDF therefore simplifies both collaboration among teams and secure PDF document exchange. Users get full control over access to documents and all their different versions.
