Rise of the PDF
Almost thirty years ago, PDF (Portable Document Format) transformed the way the world sends and receives important documents. Since that time, the ongoing advancement of technology has revolutionized the way businesses, firms and professionals operate at the fundamental level.
Sending and receiving digital documents is easier, faster, and cheaper than wasting time and resources on the outmoded infrastructures needed to sustain the endless ebb and flow of paper documents. Paperless policies also have the added benefit of supporting ecological sustainability. This benefit, combined with the proliferation of mobile technologies and the continued advance in the availability of internet worldwide have only increased the advantages of using PDF in everyday business interactions.
The Status Quo
For many years, a single company dominated the PDF software market, and understandably so. From the time Adobe invented the PDF in the early 90’s until recently, growth in the overall awareness of alternative solutions has seen only nominal change. Even today, there are many businesses and consumers across the globe who remain unaware of alternative PDF editing tools and applications. The status quo, however, is rapidly changing. Since the early 2000’s, the market has seen steady disruption from several companies contending for a better way to use PDF.
In Search of Alternatives
Now to the present; there are many options available to work with PDF, but which ones actually make good on the promise to deliver a better, more affordable alternative? Most seem to emulate Adobe (unsuccessfully), but at the end of the day, they come across as the slightly-less-expensive knock-off brand. Many customers (professionals especially) would rather swallow the extra cost than risk wasting their time using a lesser quality product.
The Good News
What mainstream professionals need is a high-quality alternative PDF editor that isn’t weighed down with unnecessary features and exaggerated costs. The good news is this solution already exists, and the word is spreading fast.
In late August of 2016 two companies announced a partnership to release a new kind of PDF editor, custom-tailored to fit the needs of modern professionals for a fraction of the monopolistic cost offered by Adobe. This lightning-fast PDF editor is faster, more affordable, and free from bloated features few people actually use.
