Adobe adopts automation
1 April 2005 | 0
New server products from Adobe are designed to automate document and forms processes. Adobe Document Server and Adobe Document Server for Reader Extensions let companies integrate enterprise applications with document workflow throughout an organisation. This improves document generation, collaboration and process management throughout a business.
Adobe Document Server and Document Server for Reader Extensions use Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) technologies.
Adobe Document Server lets users assemble customised Adobe PDF files dynamically, from a variety of data sources, to create documents such as technical manuals, electronic forms, contracts, business reports and invoices.
The software can be integrated with existing ERP, CRM and CMS systems, document-management systems, and industry-standard databases to generate custom one-to-one business communications in PDF. Document Server also accepts XML commands, and is compatible with Extensible Style Language Formatting Objects (XSL-FO), an industry standard for describing how an XML document should be formatted for a variety of media.
Adobe Document Server for Reader Extensions assigns usage rights to Adobe PDF documents and forms. Once these rights have been assigned, users of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader version 5.1 software will be able to save, fill and route PDF forms, add electronic ‘sticky’ notes for comments or questions, and digitally sign completed forms. These features were previously available only with the full Adobe Acrobat 5.0 software.
