Power PDF Makes Collaboration Easier and Safer Than Foxit
PDF collaboration is often a challenge. Version control can be difficult and it slows down turnaround times. Power PDF features innovative technology and fresh upgrades that open the door for business users to collaborate on PDF commenting and editing in real time.
- Collaborative work on PDFs lets multiple knowledge workers build better documents, but security can be a concern, especially in today’s environment of digital threats. Foxit PDF Editor uses Connected PDF, which provides for collaboration but uses a third-party cloud server to host documents and connections.
- Power PDF offers LAN-based collaboration, allowing businesses to maintain stricter security over collaboration on sensitive documents.
- New in Power PDF Advanced 5, you can take PDFs into the cloud without relying on a third party. Self-host a server that other users connect to for collaborative PDF editing sessions with the Collaboration Server. Now employees inside the office, at home or anywhere on the go can securely work together in an environment entirely under the company’s oversight.
Highly cost-effective and available for a one-time licensing fee, Power PDF provides your business with a complete suite of PDF editing features. But more than just a PDF editor, it fosters faster, easier collaboration across your business. See how it stacks up when you explore your free trial version today.
