The Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint enables end-users as well as developers to convert, split, merge, OCR*, watermark and secure common document types such as MS-Word, InfoPath, E-mail, AutoCAD, Excel, HTML, PowerPoint, Publisher, Visio, ODF, and images from within SharePoint using a friendly interface, custom Nintex, K2 and SharePoint Designer workflows and even Web Service calls. The product also comes with powerful watermarking and PDF merging facilities.

Please note that this product is limited to use from SharePoint 'on-premise'. Separate platform agnostic, PDF/A & OCR and SharePoint Online / Office 365 versions are available as well. For simple scenarios and evaluation purposes we recommend installing the SharePoint Online App in your SharePoint on-premise environment.

For Example: MS-Word (doc, docx, docm, rtf, txt, xml, odt, wps), InfoPath, Excel (xls, xlsx, xlsm, xlsb, xml, csv, dif, ods), PowerPoint (ppt, pptx, pptm, xml, odp, pps, ppsx, ppsm), MS-Publisher, Viso (vsd, vdfx, svg, svgz), Images (gif, png, jpg, bmp, tiff), AutoCAD, HTML and even e-mail (msg, eml) files stored in mail enabled Document Libraries. All Office versions from '95 up to the latest 2019 version are supported.

Cross-conversion between file types such as xls to xlsx, docx to doc, xls to doc and even InfoPath to MS-Word, Excel and HTML is supported as well.

Compatible with your SharePoint environment

The Muhimbi PDF Converter has been designed to work with all major SharePoint versions ranging from 2007 to 2019 and leverages the following SharePoint technologies:

  • Workflows: Use the Converter from a friendly user interface or use SharePoint Designer / Nintex / K2 or Visual Studio workflows to integrate document processing into your own business processes.

  • SharePoint WSP Solutions: The PDF converter is automatically deployed to all servers in a farm using a standard WSP file.
  • Context Sensitive: The various PDF conversion options are available from the SharePoint Ribbon.
  • SharePoint Audit Log: When enabled, document conversions are reported in the SharePoint Audit Log.
  • SharePoint Trace Log: Document conversions, successful as well as unsuccessful ones, are written to the SharePoint trace log.
  • SharePoint Security: The system prevents the user from converting documents to folders / libraries or sites they don't have access to.
  • Localisation: Currently available in English, Dutch, Japanese, French, Traditional Chinese and German. Additional languages are added based on demand.
