Touch point PDF Days Europe 2016

PDF Tools AG will bring the full power of PDF & PDF/A expert knowledge to the venue. Our Swiss experts delegation will once again support knowledge exchange on the application around the PDF and PDF/A format.

On Tuesday we are going to present a SAP customer case. Supported by our partner joinApps the attendees will get an idea about the practical use, the advantages and benefits of automated PDF generation with standardized quality processes within Geberit, a global operating company and European leader in the field of sanitary products. The presentation will show you how the interaction between purchase-, production-, and quality assurance department ensures an efficient and transparent communication with the suppliers. This presentation will be held in German – but the team is at your disposal for questions during the conference and also afterwards. Just contact one of the speakers during the venue or get in contact later on through email.

On Wednesday we will host our technical/developer part concerning PDF and PDF/A optimization. One of our specialists will make sure you get an idea on what the possibilities and limits in optimization of PDF objects are, when it comes to fonts, images, colors etc. The theoretical part will be enriched with real-world examples and you’ll have enough time to chat with our developers about these topics. This technical presentation will be held in English.

For those who can’t participate at the conference, but are still interested in one or both matters – please get in touch with us and we will be at your disposal for more information and details about these topics.

We are looking forward to an exciting and successful conference!
