activePDF DocConverter™ is a server-based web-accessible application that allows you to dynamically convert over 280 different file formats to PDF while allowing control of output parameters such as file location, print and screen quality, security and web optimization of generated PDF files. With DocConverter’s unlimited distributable client side component, corporate level access to DocConverter can be provided within any custom application.
Dynamic Conversion of 280 Formats
Whether it's a few documents a day or thousands, only activePDF DocConverter offers this much in a single server-based package. With native support for Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and WordPerfect, as well as over 280 other formats, DocConverter takes the guesswork out of PDF conversion.
Smart Conversion Technology
activePDF DocConverter handles even the most complex Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents with ease. "Smart Conversion" technology deals with OLE integration issues, while our "Intelligent PDF" feature makes documents come alive by converting Word form fields, headings, and other more to PDF elements.
Drag and Drop Simplicity
Out of the box, activePDF DocConverter operates in batch mode via directory scanning. The process is simple: define a "watched" folder on the network for DocConverter to scan. The end users can drag and drop files from their desktops to the network folder and DocConverter will convert them to PDF automatically, placing the resultant PDFs in an output folder for further processing or retrieval.
Easy to Integrate
activePDF DocConverter is the only PDF conversion product available that offers a remote submission COM component, making integration with your existing infrastructure as simple as a single method call. Using the COM component, you can quickly create processes to automatically submit document files to DocConverter server for on-the-fly PDF generation.
activePDF also offers a free COM object that can be installed on separate servers or in workstation applications, for submission of remote or FTP conversions.
Reliable and Robust
activePDF DocConverter is fault-tolerant, running its conversions "out of process" so that even if the document's host application crashes, the conversion process is not afected. DocConverter will detect process stoppage (e.g. if it encounters a corrupt file) and, in batch mode, will re-launch to continue processing the remaining files.
