"Businesses should no longer need to pay for simple PDF creation.”
Global Graphics, developer of printing and e-document software, has announced the launch of gDoc Creator, a free PDF-creation software. The software will be available for download by individual business and office workers and consumers, and be available under a corporate licensing scheme for the enterprise.
Global Graphics reports that it is “fighting for a place on the corporate desktop alongside Adobe, Google, and Microsoft by providing an enterprise-level productivity application.”
The new software enables:
* Creation of PDF, PDF/a (for long-term archiving of electronic documents), or XPS documents from any Windows application that prints;
* Creation of PDF, PDF/a, or XPS from the toolbar in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, complete with bookmarks, hypertext links, etc.;
* Creation of PDF, PDF/a, or XPS from a drag and drop user interface;
* Convert PDF to .doc format for re-use in Microsoft Word; and
* Viewing of documents in multiple formats and a “flick view” to quickly browse documents.
The new software is part of Global Graphics' “freemium go-to-market” strategy for gDoc Fusion, which is a desktop application designed to improve productivity. The company’s gDoc Fusion is designed to give users fast and easy assembly of new documents with a simple drag-and-drop action from a wide range of multiple document formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, XPS, JPG, TIFF, and PNG. The gDoc Creator can be upgraded to gDoc Fusion.
"Businesses should no longer need to pay for simple PDF creation and we hope our disruptive pricing strategy will begin to redraw the lines of this market," says Gary Fry, CEO of Global Garphics. "Global Graphics is set to win a significant share of knowledge workers who find themselves having to compile information from a range of sources and formats, and our corporate licensing scheme will make it simple for companies to roll this out across the enterprise."
