Regardless of the experience level of people working on a given project, reliable inter-company file exchange starts with the communication about PDF quality specifications. CertifiedPDF.net facilitates that communication, enabling document receivers (printers and publishers) to publish their PDF specifications, PDF Queues and related documentation for easy distribution to document creators (designers). These specifications and PDF Queues are then used within the Enfocus products to create PDF files that comply with the quality requirements for output. Document creators and receivers can all use the resource section on CertifiedPDF.net to gain valuable information on PDF quality management.
The integration with Instant PDF unveils CertifiedPDF.net's full potential. Document receivers publish Enfocus PDF Queues, which contain all the settings that control PDF quality, to CertifiedPDF.net directly from Instant PDF. Document creators import and subscribe to these PDF Queues from within Instant PDF, making them immediately available for use. A newly introduced synchronization mechanism updates any changes to the PDF Queue, ensuring the most recent specification is always available for use.
Contributors to CertifiedPDF.net either create their own specification or link through to existing industry specifications published by associations and Enfocus. The grouping and sorting functionality ensures that even with multiple specifications for different production processes, customers can still find the necessary specification. Document receivers can also customize their Contributor and specification detail pages to the look and feel of their website for consistent corporate communication. They can limit the access to these pages only to their customers.
CertifiedPDF.net is the ultimate tool for printers and publishers to effectively communicate PDF output requirements to designers and content creators for error-free print production.
