Using Batch Sequencing to Simplify PDF Processing

Some of the most important tasks in the office are also the most tedious. For example, document processing often requires one or more employees to sit at their desks with many digital files that need modification. From watermarking pages to removing recurring sensitive information, employees must address these changes before they can move to the next stage in the document's lifecycle. However, these procedures often take far more time than necessary.

With Kofax Power PDF, there's an easier way to tackle this workload. As a fully-featured PDF editor, Power PDF has more than just basic functionality: it has advanced, time-saving capabilities, including batch processing. With these tools, large jobs can take seconds instead of hours.

What Can You Do With PDF Batch Sequencing?

Batch sequencing is a basic form of automation in PDF editing tools such as Power PDF. Using a pre-defined sequence of actions, users can apply the same changes to multiple documents at once. The results are consistent, reliable, and error-free. Some of the things that you can do in a batch process with Power PDF:

  • Add and remove watermarks or apply redactions to sensitive phrases.
  • Add stamps to places or pages.
  • Complete page operations, including deletions, insertions, rotation, and extraction.
