Better PDF for Government
A complete PDF solution offers:
Fast and simple creation
Conversion from PDF to a variety of other useful formats
All of the comment mark-ups you need to effectively share your thoughts
And other powerful features that will allow you to truly collaborate while
dramatically increasing your productivity.
Better PDF for Government delivers a complete PDF solution that is:
Powerful without being bloated
Affordable without being cheap
And backed by an established company that understands the value of
PDF Usage within an Organization
The Challenge
Cost Issues
Complete Solutions are often costly and therefore too expensive for a
corporate-wide rollout
Companies adopt a piece-meal approach, giving various levels of
functionality to only certain employees, to stay within budget
Problems Created by Piece-meal Approach
How to effectively track who has what application in order to stay within
licensing agreement and maintain predictable budgeting?
Who gets what functionality?
How to handle users who that need to upgrade functionality?
How to effectively manage multiple PDF applications and different desktop
Typical PDF Investment
Limited Deployment of “Complete Solutions”
In order to maintain cost-efficiency, a small number of employees are
given complete PDF solutions enabling them to:
Create PDF
Convert PDF to other formats
Edit and annotate PDF
Mix of PDF Products Deployed Company-wide
Some employees using Standard product, such as Adobe Acrobat, others
using Professional version
Majority of remaining employees using a PDF reader such as Adobe
Acrobat Reader
This solution creates as many problems as it solves!
The Resulting PDF Problem
Pockets of PDF users with different capabilities
Slows down users with complete solution, forcing them to address needs
of coworkers with basic solution
Slows those without complete solution capabilities by forcing them to hunt
down co-workers that can help
Creates a productivity bottleneck, hindering workflow
Right Sizing Your PDF Investment
What does “Right Sizing your PDF Investment” mean?
Finding a PDF solution that fits the size of your organization – one size
does NOT fit all
Only paying for features which your company needs
Avoiding the management trap of enabling only pockets of users
Predictable budgeting, not worrying about unexpected overages or seat
