GHENT, Belgium--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Leading PDF library company iText Software today launched pdf2Data, which allows users to easily extract and access data from PDF documents, a process that until now could be extremely challenging. pdf2Data is the first third-party created add-on to the iText 7 platform.
“Once the user determines what information they need, pdf2Data has the ability to rapidly retrieve data from thousands of PDFs, streamlining critical document workflows such as invoicing and data conversion.”
“Easily pulling information from PDFs into a usable format no longer needs to be a cumbersome process with pdf2Data,” said Raf Hens, iText director of product management. “Once the user determines what information they need, pdf2Data has the ability to rapidly retrieve data from thousands of PDFs, streamlining critical document workflows such as invoicing and data conversion.
Specifically, this addition to iText 7 allows users to unlock stored data in PDFs. Users select what information to pull from PDFs by defining the areas, fonts, patterns or tables of interest. Then pdf2Data pulls the selected data out of PDF documents.
When integrated with pdfHTML and pdfInvoice, pdf2Data provides users a financial suite for invoicing and recordkeeping.
“iText7 is the perfect platform for developers looking to create add-ons, like pdf2Data, that benefit users and work on top of iText7’s robust and extensible foundation,” said Hens. “We encourage the development community to take advantage of this profit-sharing opportunity to strengthen iText with add-ons and gain broader exposure for their products.”
