Today is an exciting day at Adlib. With teams on the ground on three continents, a fast growing partner ecosystem and now, another product upgrade to deliver to customers today, we couldn’t be prouder. Responding to customer demand, something we have built our reputation on, Adlib PDF 5.3.2, available today, delivers enhancements to our recently launched Adlib PDF 5.3, and evolves the Adlib Compression Module, available to our Enterprise customers.

Ears open, problems solved

Solving document management problems is our thing. And this one is a biggie. Literally. We’ve been listening to our customers tell us just how much data they have. Data they need for compliancearchiving and collaboration purposes. You may have heard us use the term “infobesity” before. In fact, our VP, Customer Success, Scott Mackey, discussed this very topic in a recent blog post. It’s a frequent theme in our conversations with customers, partners and other industry professionals. We live it every day. Most of our customers are working in high-volume environments, where the mountain of data they are dealing with has become insurmountable. Consider that by 2020, B2B transactions on the web will reach 450 billion per day. Not only is volume the issue, but over the past ten years, the type of information that is important to organizations has changed. Think social media, think emails, think hundreds of different file types. The list goes on and on.

While we are experts in helping companies automate processes like ‘capture’ to manage this data, this product upgrade focuses on how to store this information efficiently and share it without clogging up bandwidth.

Intelligent compression – the highlights

With the release of Adlib PDF 5.3.2, not only does our compression technology deliver Mixed Raster Content (MRC) compression in the mix, but it offers intelligence that automatically detects the content on each page, and determines the compression that can be applied to ensure the quality of the document is maintained. Here’s a quick run-down of the business benefits of Adlib’s intelligent compression capabilities, likely items that matter most to you when it comes to managing infobesity:

  • Reduced storage use
  • Reduced storage costs – by 60% or more (95% is not uncommon)
  • Acceleration of data transfer – make sure your colleague, your customer, your boss doesn’t have to spend more time than necessary downloading the files you send, whether on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device

I encourage you to download the datasheet on compression for more information on the value this module can add to your enterprise technology landscape.

We look forward to keeping you informed on further product updates as we move towards the release of Adlib PDF 6.0 in the near future.
