This week in PDF: ceTe, Foxit sign sign strategic partnership deal

October 16, 2008


This week in PDF has seen the announcement of a new location-based business intelligence solution, an update to a PDF/A-compatible creation component, and a strategic partnership between two established PDF developers.

First up, Global Map Systems has announced the release of a location-based business intelligence solution based on LOGIQ PDF maps. Entitled GeoMarket Reports, the product provides geographic business intelligence and reporting to identify the locations of profitable customers and markets. This allows banks, retailers, real estate investors, hotels and restaurants to analyze and prioritize which geographic markets are ripe for new business. It also improves direct marketing by identifying zip codes with prospects that match the most profitable potential customers. For more information, visit the official vendor site.

In other product-related news, The Imaging Source has announced a pending update to its PDF/A-compliant word-processing component. Due in Q1, 2009, the next version of TX Text Control allows PDF/A documents to be created or converted from the industry standard formats Office Open XML (DOCX), MS Word (DOC) and Rich Text Format (RTF). The software component enables developers to integrate PDF/A creation or conversion into their business applications. Visit for the full details.

Finally, ceTe Software has inked a strategic partnership pact with the makers of the free Foxit Reader, Foxit Software Company. The partnership helps ceTe Software expand its DynamicPDF product line by providing access to Foxit's PDF rendering technology. This can then be combined with ceTe's expertise in PDF creation and manipulation to provide a revamped set of controls and server-side tools. For more, check out the ceTe and Foxit websites.

That's it for this week. Watch this space!
