PDF tracking-and-management service launched

March 16, 2005


Software developer Remote Approach recently announced the launch of a new online service that enables clients to track and manage PDF documents through multiple distribution channels.

The service allows users to easily tag PDFs so that, when distributed, the files automatically interact with a reporting system. This allows clients to see whether their documents are being read -- not just downloaded -- and if they are being forwarded and distributed through channels like email and peer-to-peer.

"A lot of clients don't measure their full audience, relying only on their Web site statistics," said John Bielby, President of Remote Approach. "Using this service will allow them to realize how widespread their PDF documents are being distributed. From a dollars-and-cents perspective, it's particularly important to companies trying to establish return on investment metrics for their online distribution channels."

Using the graphical reporting interface, Remote Approach clients can view and analyze reports in real time. With a variety of pre-built reports available, the service provides quick access to high-level analysis and built-in functionality to export raw logs into the reporting or analysis tool of choice.

A free demonstration of the software is available online.
