The version of the PDF Converter for SharePoint released earlier this year went down a storm as it was one of the first major third party products to ship with SharePoint 2013 and Nintex Workflow 2013 support. Today we are happy to announce yet another release of this popular product - version 7.1 - that benefits users of all SharePoint versions including SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013.
The main new features are support for OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to convert scanned documents into fully searchable and indexable PDF files, and a completely overhauled converter for the EML (email) format that should really benefit those people with mail enabled document libraries.
- Improved support for the MSG & EML based formats.
- OCR Facilities provided by Muhimbi’s server based PDF Conversion products
- Carry out OCR using a web service call (.NET)
- Carry out OCR using a web service call (Java)
- Carry out OCR using a SharePoint workflow
For those not familiar with the product, the PDF Converter for SharePoint is a lightweight solution that allows end-users to watermark, merge, split, secure, OCR and convert common document types - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MSG (email) MS-Office, HTML and images - to PDF as well as other formats from within SharePoint using a friendly user interface, workflows or a web service call without the need to install any client side software or Adobe Acrobat. It integrates at a deep level with SharePoint and leverages facilities such as the Audit log, Nintex Workflow, localisation, security and tracing. It runs on SharePoint 2007, 2010 & 2013 and is available in English, German, Dutch, French, Traditional Chinese and Japanese. For detailed information check out the product page .
