BURLINGTON, Mass., – April 2, 2014 – Nuance Communications Inc., a leading provider of speech and imaging solutions, today announced Nuance Power PDF, which offers the PDF software features that business users need to be productive at a price that supports deployment across the entire enterprise. Power PDF delivers high performance, an intuitive user experience, and value, freeing users from the compromises of traditional PDF applications.
With Power PDF, business users get all the tools they need to create, manage, share, and secure PDF files plus additional features only available from Nuance for document conversion, search, connectivity and more. Power PDF has powerful features to accurately convert PDFs to editable Microsoft Office documents, combine and assemble documents from many sources into a single PDF, and collaborate on PDF files with a powerful toolset.
“Power PDF is the PDF solution best-suited for businesses and large organizations,” said Michael Rich, executive vice president and general manager, Nuance Document Imaging. “Before Nuance Power PDF, businesses had to make compromises and choose between the limited capabilities of free PDF reader software, low-end PDF solutions, or an expensive solution designed for graphic designers that isn’t engineered for today’s business environment. Customers demand solutions that integrate with their business processes; are flexible, secure and scalable; and don’t burden them with unwanted or onerous pricing or licensing demands. Power PDF meets those demands, without compromise.”
Nuance Power PDF: Easy to Use, Affordable, Scalable
With its Microsoft Office-style ribbon user interface, Power PDF minimizes the learning curve and maximizes productivity by enabling users to transition effortlessly between word processing and PDF publishing. The software makes it easy to share and collaborate on work seamlessly across an organization as well as externally – all while providing document control and security. Power PDF is priced to be affordably deployed to all business users in an enterprise, enabling all employees to assemble, compare, convert, create, dictate, edit, read, redact, scan, search, secure, sign, print and validate PDF documents and forms with unprecedented ease and speed.
Key new features in Power PDF include:
Combine and assemble documents with ease. Combine files and remove or replace pages in complex documents with drag-and-drop ease. For instance, in maintenance manuals or government regulation documents, users can update content without losing links to other parts of the document. For review use cases, they can utilize batch tools to automate repetitive tasks and improve efficiency throughout the workplace.
Side-by-side document comparison. Quickly identify differences between two versions of a document with a side-by-side comparison tool that accurately highlights changes in text and visuals, and provides a summary report of all changes.
Commenting and review. Nuance Dragon Notes voice recognition capabilities are integrated into Power PDF enabling users to dictate text quickly and accurately into notes within a PDF – increasing productivity.
Easily manage batch workflows. Create workflows to automate large-scale PDF creation or conversion, stamping, watermarking, OCR, redaction, inserting or deleting pages, and Bates numbering tasks. For example, an organization can quickly look through 1,000 or more files to find number or word patterns, such as social security numbers, invoice IDs, phone numbers, dates and email addresses, to identify and locate relevant information for editing or redaction.
Power PDF enables users to quickly and easily create 100 percent industry-standard PDF files with security options that are fully compliant with all PDF viewers. Users can generate PDFs directly from the authoring tools – with Microsoft add-ons to Office and Outlook – with all tags, bookmarks, links and references intact. The software also faithfully converts PDF files – even with complex layouts such as columns, tables and graphics – to Microsoft Office, Corel WordPerfect and other authoring formats – saving users valuable time.
Nuance Power PDF has secure delivery, document inspection, redaction, encryption and digital rights management capabilities to control access to documents, inside and outside of the enterprise. The software can deploy PDF files in read-only mode to enforce compliance with SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, eDiscovery and other internal control best practices and regulatory mandates.
Power PDF also integrates with many third-party applications, enabling organizations to incorporate PDF into existing workflows, increasing organizational, operational and worker efficiency. For example, small offices can connect to popular cloud-based collaboration sites, such as Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Docs™, Office 365TM and Windows Live SkyDrive®. Large-scale organizations can connect with enterprise-class content management systems, including Autonomy, Documentum, SharePoint and NetDocs.
