Adlib Software Unveils Express Server 4.5


New Version of Server-Based Document Transformation Solution Allows Users to Convert XML to PDF

Burlington, Ontario — November 10, 2008 — Adlib Software, a leader in advanced server-based document conversion, recognition and publishing, announced the availability of Adlib Express Server 4.5, an enhanced version of its server-based suite of applications that integrate seamlessly with enterprise application software or as part of any document workflow solution.

In addition to the easy deployment, integration, maintenance and scalability of Adlib’s solutions, Adlib Express Server 4.5 now allows users to easily convert XML files to PDF or other formats. Converting XML files to PDF is particularly important for organizations that pull high-volume content from databases and apply it to templates.

With Adlib Server 4.5, users can now arrange and format a variety of complex XML documents with text, tables, graphics and images while converting to high quality PDF.

“Express Server 4.5 offers powerful new functionality and flexibility, arming our customers with the most comprehensive document conversion solution available,” said Scott Mackey, director of product management, Adlib Software. “By converting XML to PDF, Adlib Express Server 4.5 reduces an organization’s costs by accelerating its workflow through automation and by allowing it to render both structured content such as XML files and unstructured content such as office documents using a single solution.”

Other new features of Express Server 4.5 include:

Support for rendering Microsoft’s Infopath forms to PDF
Additional flexibility through user-definable variable substitution within Adlib XML Job Tickets
Improved performance for document-to-image output
Additional supported image formats
Learning resources for XML Job Ticket functionality
Reduced administration through automated job information collection
Express Server applications are easily integrated with enterprise applications and seamlessly incorporated into any document workflow. Benefits typically include increased customer satisfaction, which results from getting the right document at the right time, reduced costs through increased efficiency and reduced maintenance, and stronger adherence to internal or external compliance requirements.

Good Products and Adlib Software Partner to Facilitate Pharmaceutical Regulatory Submissions



Burlington, Ontario — September 24, 2008   Good Products, a leading provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions for the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries, and Adlib Software, a leading producer of server-based document conversion, recognition and publishing software, today announced an OEM partnership. This new partnership has been formed to facilitate regulatory submissions in the pharmaceutical industry and will see the integration of Good Products’ electronic document management system (eDMS) g-docs™ with Adlib Software’s Express Server centralized PDF rendering tool.

The collaboration between the two industry-leading scientific software providers addresses the need from the pharmaceutical industry for streamlined and compliant regulatory document management. Using the new integrated system, pharmaceutical organizations will be able to store, manage and track regulatory documents and create high quality regulatory submission-ready PDFs with bookmarks and hyperlinks.

g-docs™ from Good Products offers life sciences organizations an effective, easy-to-use way of managing their documents including tracking document version history, managing approvals, monitoring and recording changes in an audit log. Additionally, g-docs™ incorporates CoSign®, a digital signature solution that allows an individual to digitally sign a document as if they were using ink. CoSign® digital signatures have now been upheld in the US court, and are deemed to pass the ‘non- repudiation’ test as well as being compliant with the FDA’s 21 CFR part 11 Guidance. g-docs™ uses Adlib Express Server to automatically convert different document formats including Microsoft Office, scanned images, engineering drawings and web and image formats to PDF while meeting the requirements of international regulatory bodies, including the FDA. g-docs™ also uses Adlib to automatically maintain audit, version, reference and distribution tables within the rendered documents, massively saving time and at the push of a button.

Peter Duff, president and CEO, Adlib Software, comments: “Our partnership with Good Products complements the ability to provide compliant document conversion systems to the pharmaceutical industry. The integration of g-docs™ and Express Server accelerates regulatory submissions and enables organizations to manage documents in a compliant way across the whole lifecycle, from creation to regulatory submission.”

“With the increasing standardization of regulatory submissions in an electronic format, and the need to simplify the User experience, both Adlib Software and Good Products recognize the importance of maintaining the consistency and accuracy of electronic documentation from creation to submission,” adds Keith Williams, CEO, Good Products. “We are now looking to work together to develop further enhancements and functionality, enabling deeper integration of Good Products and Adlib Software solutions.”

Adlib Software and COOP Systems Sign OEM Agreement



Adlib ExpressConversion Server and ExpressPublishing Server Technology to Bolster COOP Systems’ Business Continuity Planning (BCP) Technology 
 

Burlington, Ontario — September 23, 2008  — Adlib Software, a leader in advanced server-based document conversion, recognition and publishing software, and COOP Systems, Inc., a leading provider of business continuity software for the global enterprise, today announced that they have signed an OEM agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, COOP Systems will license and embed Adlib’s ExpressConversion Server and ExpressPublishing Server technology into future versions of myCOOP, its Business Continuity Planning (BCP) software package.

COOP Systems’ customers in the private and public sector in North America and throughout the world are challenged to manage an ever-increasing number and variety of documents as part of their Business Continuity Planning process.  Adlib and COOP Systems provides customers with on-demand document conversion, printing and PDF publishing that drives productivity, reduces the demands on staff and supports compliance with regulatory bodies and internal audit processes.

"Adlib has been an exceptional partner as part of our Business Continuity Planning (BCP) software package," said Chris Alvord, CEO, COOP Systems. "Now, with Adlib directly integrated into our product, our clients benefit in numerous ways with the advanced PDF printing functions.  Existing content can be re-used without changes, lowering costs and speeding implementation time.  End users easily use the printing feature themselves on demand, relieving the burden on overworked administrators. Accuracy is enhanced as content remains in native format."

Adlib’s ExpressConversion Server automatically converts hundreds of document types into PDF, PDF/A, PDF/X, HTML and Text. When integrated into COOP Systems’ BCP software, customers can eliminate tedious, labor-intensive and error prone manual processes by automating document conversion processes within any workflow. Adlib's ExpressConversion Server provides a variety of interfaces to enable easy integration with any software application or process. 

With Adlib’s ExpressPublishing Server, documents can be appended automatically with PDF stamps, tables of content, title pages or common elements such as legal text. End users can also systematically add customizable PDF watermarks, page numbers, headers, footers, disclaimers or document control data like Bates numbers, time/date stamps or status information.

“Sharing documents between applications and among employees, departments, suppliers and customers is a challenge for any enterprise,” said Peter Duff, president and CEO of Adlib Software. “Without a standard, electronic mechanism for sharing information, communication flow breaks down and can cost organizations unnecessary man hours and money, not to mention aggravation. With powerful server-based PDF conversion and publishing automation capabilities, Adlib and COOP Systems jointly solve this business continuity challenge. The result is a solution that saves enterprises time and money and seamlessly integrates into their unique methodologies.”

Vancouver, BC and Burlington, ON — September 22, 2008 —
 PDFTron Systems Inc., a leading provider of cross-platform PDF development tools and components, and Adlib Software, a leader in advanced server-based document conversion, recognition and publishing software, today announced that they have signed a new OEM agreement strengthening the tie between the two companies. Under the terms of the agreement, PDFTron’s advanced PDF library PDFNetTM SDK is to continue to provide core PDF functionality in Adlib’s comprehensive line of document transformation applications for document conversion, optical character recognition (OCR) and document publishing.

Adlib Software’s core applications are designed to provide server-based document transformation for companies with large volumes of documents and mission-critical document processes, who are seeking complete document rendering functionality as part of a standard workflow. As a leader in the industry, Adlib relies on the best technology available. “We searched for a PDF library many years ago to supplement our original document publishing applications”, said Scott Mackey, Director of Product Management and co-founder of Adlib Software. “We standardized on PDFNet SDK because it met all our requirements and proved to be the most reliable and robust PDF engine available.”  

Over time, Adlib Software continued to rely on PDFTron’s full-spectrum PDF toolkit, integrating it more tightly into Adlib’s expanding product offering. As a result, the recent agreement further extends the strong partnership, reinforcing Adlib’s commitment to PDFTron’s technology.  “With the success we have experienced using the PDF toolkit and working with PDFTron’s team so far, the decision to keep this success going came very naturally,” said Peter Duff, president and CEO of Adlib Software. “Our mission is to provide the highest quality document conversion applications with the most robust functionality offering both depth and breadth to our customers. PDFTron not only supports this effort, it enables it in many cases, thus undoubtedly enhancing the leadership position of Adlib Software”.

With PDFNet SDK, Adlib delivers solutions to its customers that handle all types of PDF processing. Using the latest version of PDFNet, end users can benefit from faster and higher quality text extraction from PDF pages in either Unicode or XML. PDFNet also provides core error handling capabilities for automatic error recovery for PDF documents with minor corruptions such as broken cross reference tables. Mackey added, “In our newest release, we are now able to support PDF Layers (Optional Content Groups) due in large part to the newest PDFNet release.”

“By continuing to leverage PDFNet SDK, Adlib has the strength of our proven technology and the expertise of our development team behind them and can focus their efforts on adding value to their exciting new generations of document transformation solutions,” said Catherine Andersz, Director of Business Development at PDFTron. “Adlib is a valued customer for PDFTron and we are excited to continue our successful relationship. It was a great fit from the start and as time progressed, the synergies between our two companies have resulted in better products on both sides, delivering more value to both companies, and most importantly, to the end users.”
