Why PDF Conversion?
- PDF preserves all visual elements which you have created in another document before you convert to pdf format. Hence, all your text, graphics, images which you created (eg: in MS Word) can be easily and effortlessly converted to pdf.
- PDF supports interactive functions such as hyperlinks, markup, file attachments, music, movies, and text notes. It can also integrate interactive forms which can perform importing and exporting of data as requested.
- PDF support high levels of data encryption and security, and provides an easy and secure approach for data transmission and sharing, through commonly used tools such as email. Level of User Access can also be customized if required. PDF can also be digitally signed to confirm its authenticity. No more fears on your important documents falling into the wrong hands. Also, there’s almost no chance of a PDF file getting infected with a virus or trojan, which makes it a safe and trusted way of sharing your work.
- PDF allows file compression from your raw data file created. (eg: from MS Word or Power point). This is especially useful in graphics laden documents, as the PDF can achieve effective reductions between 2:1 down to 8:1 so that you get a smaller document, with no loss in quality, making it faster to upload or to share with your co-workers.
