IDRsolutions product range update for 2018

1 min read

We have some exciting news to share with you at the start of 2018….

Since we launched our PDF conversion products in 2011, the market has change considerably. The software has also become far more powerful and the product names no longer fully make it clear what the software actually does. So we have taken the opportunity to update our product range to match what our clients are asking for in 2018.

The old products JPDF2HTML5 and JPDFFORMS will no longer be available (we will grandfather our existing clients into the new options). So let us introduce you to the new product range.

1.FormVu provides a complete Forms Viewer to allow you to display, fill-in and return Acrobat Forms (both FDF and XFA). It is aimed at Enterprise clients with lots of Form documents looking to transition them onto mobile solutions.

PDF Form documents are fully converted into HTML5/CSS/JavaScript and can be viewed in a web browser with no additional software. It supports FormCalc, dynamic forms, calculations and other high end features. It can update the original PDF form documents with new data or repost the data back to a server.

2. BuildVu has two related but distinct use cases.

Firstly, it is a complete high-end document viewing solution for displaying Documents (PDF, Office, numerous image formats) in a highly configurable web viewing solution. This is useful for companies looking for a complete solution to display documents inside the browser and integrate into their existing workflow and software. It also makes a great replacement for old Flash-based solutions.

Documents are fully converted into HTML5 or SVG and the Conversion and Viewer are highly configurable.

Secondly, it is also a converter for clients looking to turn PDF documents into HTML5 or SVG content which can then be used in their own viewing solutions. This is useful for clients who are building their own bespoke viewer.

The recommended workflow for both the products is to deploy on the server (cloud or physical) to provide a one off conversion which can then be served out or post-processed.

We hope this makes the product range clearer for our customers. All the products have a very busy and exciting roadmap for 2018 and we hope you will join us on the journey.
