PDF Day: The ROI

PDF Day logoPDF Day is coming next week to Washington DC and New York City! What can IT and records managers and executives expect?

It’s no secret that organizations everywhere use PDF all day, every day. From exchanging contracts to checking proofs, from transaction records to delivering reference information to users, PDF is the ubiquitous electronic media for content that used to live on paper.

And yet, PDF delivers far more than a replacement for paper. This ISO-standardized, universally-accepted format is far more powerful than most users suspect.

PDF Day is an educational, non-commercial event designed to educate IT decision-makers about how PDF can address business problems. Speakers are subject matter experts, not marketers. PDF Day attendees will learn:

  • How PDF/A reduces risks and improves efficiency when sharing or storing documents
  • How PDF attachments can reduce transaction costs by containing machine-readable information to automate invoicing and other exchange-of-data procedures
  • How digital signatures can provide a range of valuable capabilities, from tamper-protection to authentication, revocation and more
  • How the common platform of PDF technology allows users to collaborate on document reviews online and offline
  • How to manage privacy concerns in electronic documents
  • How to conform to regulatory requirements for accessible (Section 508 and ADA) electronic content
  • …and more

What’s the return on your investment for attending PDF Day?

  • You’ll see how intelligent use of PDF can reduce costs and refine workflows in everyday business processes
  • You’ll think of new ways of communicating with end-users, vendors and the public
  • You’ll be be better equipped to assess existing and plan new enterprise content deployments
