  • Provides the industry’s most extensive analysis and validation of PDF files according to PDF/A (ISO standard 19005-1:2005), that goes clearly beyond standard Preflight checking. Through configurable checks in addition to PDF/A validation, pdfaPilot Server users can enforce documentation and archival policies
  • Ensures compliance with regulatory requirements in terms of long-term archiving.
  • callas pdfaPilot Server not only automatically saves non-compliant PDF files as valid PDF/A documents, but they can also convert Microsoft Office and OpenOffice documents directly to PDF. Its powerful hot folder-based operation allows unequalled automation, operation and integration.
