Advanced PDF Functionality for Entrepreneurs: 8 Features to Know in 2021

An entrepreneur is always on the lookout for the next competitive edge or opportunity to grow their ideas to reach the next level of success. Whether you’re guiding a start-up through its early days or building something big, having the right tools along the way can make a difference in how much you get done from day to day.

Well-equipped PDF editor software such as Kofax Power PDF is a must-have for an entrepreneur. With it, you can tap into eight exciting and advanced features that make many kinds of work simpler. Here are the top PDF features that you’re missing.

  1. OCR Technology

    Optical character recognition has been around for a long time, but today’s OCR technology is a cut above. Power PDF features best-in-class OCR, capably producing accurate, full-text copies of existing documents or freshly-scanned PDFs. With robust OCR, you can save hours of time that you would otherwise spend re-typing information.

  2. Convert PDF Files in Seconds

    Can you convert a PDF to Excel right now? What if you need to pull out a chart in a PDF and modify it in Excel, or update and add to the text in a section of a document? The Power PDF converter is appropriate for highly accurate transitions between diverse file types. In just seconds, you can convert PDF files to Excel and back as needed.

  3. Automatically Create and Fill Forms

    Forms make it easy to collect information or send and share it. Power PDF includes form creation tools that are easy to use, plus an intelligent system that can automatically scan documents and add form fields to the appropriate locations.

  4. Annotate and Edit PDFs

    Working with collaborators and other team members doesn’t require expensive cloud software, especially if you’re sharing a network. Power PDF includes a full suite of PDF markup software and annotation tools for effective document creation. Multiple users can engage in real-time collaboration on a local network, eliminating confusion for small teams.

  5. Secure Documents with Heavy-Duty Encryption

    Even to an entrepreneur, security is a critical concern. You might not worry about the prying eyes of competitors, but you can still ensure that any user must enter the password for a document before they can see its contents. Today’s PDF format supports the strongest standards of encryption, such as AES-256, so you can make sure that every PDF is password protected.

  1. Integrate With Cloud Storage

    With the right tools, you can ensure that hard drive failures and sudden system outages don’t mean losing valuable progress on your documents. Power PDF connectors for tools such as SharePoint allow you to achieve peace of mind with ease. Simply make sure that your PDF documents go to the cloud instead of living on local disk space.

  2. Sign and Request Signatures in One Place

    The PDF is a capable replacement for wet ink signature practices. When you need others to sign documents, or when you need to give approval yourself, you can use an editor to sign a PDF and even send it through your preferred email client. Sign and fill operations dramatically reduce turnaround times on documents.

  3. Split and Merge PDFs as Needed

    Don’t let useful information remain stuck in PDFs when you need it in other applications. With Power PDF, you can split documents according to a wide range of rules or combine them.
