The Color of PDF
As an open standard for document exchange (ISO 32000-1), PDF is relied upon by nearly every industry as common file format for sharing information.
Unfortunately, the most common implementation of PDF software is Adobe Reader.
Adobe Reader limits the number of things a user can do with a PDF file and makes the ASP.NET - PDF interaction difficult.
Red Software addresses the concerns of these core audiences:
Everyday PDF Users
When it comes to saving PDF forms, allowing the creation of new PDF forms, or changing content, many users find Adobe Reader coming up short of their needs.
Red Software addresses these issues by offering an alternative online PDF editing service free of charge.
Enterprise PDF Users
Presenting a PDF should be easier.
Clients should never be concerned with whether they have the right PDF reader installed, its current version, that it offers the right functionality, or that they can trust its safety and security protections.
Even if you ask your clients to put up with this, your ASP.NET web application probably still lacks the fine grained feature control and user-interface customization your company desires.
Red Software addresses these issues with an ASP.NET PDF control which integrates quickly and requires nothing more of your clients than a modern internet browser.
Red Software is a privately-held company based in Encinitas, CA (USA).
