PDF/A capabilities are offered in PDF/A Manager as well as in PDFNet, PDFTron's flagship PDF library and electronic document processing platform. PDFNet and PDF/A Manager integrate easilty with ECM and SharePoint systems and other enterprise and commercial products to provide full PDF/A support and allow organizations to reduce costs associated with long term PDF archiving, increase efficiency through best-in-class searchability, and meet compliance requirements.
