Enfocus Software releases new Certify PDF plug-in, workflow
For certifying PDF documents within PDF workflows

Enfocus Software has begun shipping its new Certify PDF plug-in to Adobe Acrobat, based on its recently developed "Certified PDF Workflow" technology. The Certified PDF Workflow, including the Certify PDF plug-in, addresses common PDF workflow problems with advanced techniques that:

  1. streamline the PDF workflow,
  2. track responsibility, and
  3. maintain document consistency between the final production file and the original application file.

According to Peter Camps, Enfocus' CEO, these three issues are becoming more significant as organizations increase their uses of PDF -- especially in larger-volume applications.

"Large-scale exchange of PDF files between multiple companies, and between numerous locations, mandates a predictable and systematic method of certification," he says, emphasizing relevance in applications such as ad delivery for newspapers and magazines, and all PDF applications at large commercial and digital printers, as well as prepress houses. "We're confident that the Enfocus Certified PDF Workflow and compliant products will become standard for PDF workflow efficiency and consistency that will benefit everyone."

Product Line Compatibility & Third-Party Products

The entire Enfocus product line will support the Enfocus Certified PDF workflow in updated versions also available beginning January 15. PitStop Professional, PitStop Server, PowerUp PDF and WebPerfect PDF all participate in the Certified Workflow by "reading" the certified "stamp" (thus eliminating redundant preflight), starting the Certified Workflow, contributing to the edit log, and in the case of WebPerfect, removing all certified info.

Enfocus will also make code available to third parties for industry-wide Certified Workflow compliance.
