The PDF format brings significant benefits to your document management solutions:


  • PDF vs Color or Grayscale Scanning - TIFF and JPG formats are not well suited for managing grayscale and color documents. For all but black & white images, TIFF files are either very large or compressed in a format incompatible with many viewers. JPG images cannot be multipage and they reduce image quality to achieve small image sizes. The PDF format corrects both of these problems.

  • Text Searching - PDF text can be made searchable even for scanned documents. Searchable PDFs allow users to search for keywords or terms within a document or across an entire collection of PDFs.

  • Indexing - PDF files can include a variety of index features, called links and bookmarks, that allow users to quickly navigate large documents. Links and bookmarks serve as an electronic table of contents.

PDF/A images cannot be altered, cannot contain external references or links and are 100% self-contained. This ensures the PDF/A image is an exact replication of the original and will always be an exact replication.
