What can Datalogics PDF Utility API do?

Create PDFs from Office files

Microsoft Office files perform as expected within the Microsoft ecosystem, but can cause problems outside it. 

For those that don’t have Microsoft Office applications, converting to a standard document type is a must.

Supports Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files

Transform web content to PDF

Web content can be displayed differently based on device, OS, and browser. 

Converting web content to a PDF ensures a consistent layout of content that can be shared, referenced, and stored offline.

Enables conversion from both HTML files and direct URLs

Convert PDFs to images

PDFs can contain unneeded filler pages, and images locked into specific display requirements.
 
Those looking to repurpose specific materials for marketing, educational, reference, or any other reason can separate out pages and images from their PDFs.
 
Supported file types include JPG, TIF, GIF, BMP, and PNG

Archive Important PDFs

Long-term access to documents can be vital for those working in legal, finance, government, & healthcare.

Converting PDFs to the PDF/A standard ensures that important documents will be preserved.

Output options include PDF/A-1b, PDF/A-2b, PDF/A-2u, PDF/A-3b, and PDF/A-3u.

Turn images to PDF

Images can change based on the method & format with which they are shared, and the app or device used to open them. 

Users that need to share images for feedback need to convert to PDF to ensure images display consistently.

Convert BMP, TIF, PNG, and JPG files to PDF

Pay-as-you-go pricing

Our pricing model is scalable to meet the specific size and scope of your project. You’ll only pay for what you use, which allows your organization to stay agile and adaptable. No long-term contracts or opaque licensing to get in the way. 

Keep your data secure

A lot of projects require total ownership of your backend, with limited or no communication to outside servers. Spinning up an EC2 instance that hosts our API means that you’ll have total ownership of any files hosted on your server. Rest easy knowing that your data and files are secure and yours only; we will never have access to your servers.

Use Case: Archive docs to meet banking regulations
Banks must comply with federal and state requirements for the retention of records. 12 CFR 27.5 specifically requires that each bank shall retain records under 27.3 for 25 months after the bank notifies an applicant of actions taken on an application. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in serious consequences and severe fines.

Datalogics PDF Utility API can be integrated into workflows to convert documents to the PDF/A archiving standard, ensuring documents will be accessible far into the future. Datalogics PDF Utility API is a private cloud offering; keep total control over the backend and any files hosted on the server.
