PDF Accelerator

PDF Optimizer drives Performance and Accelerates Results

Product Overview

CrawfordTech’s PDF Accelerator delivers performance enhancing, flexible optimization capabilities for the processing of large PDF files.  PDF Accelerator is an industry proven solution used to streamline and optimize PDFs for print, archival and e-delivery, ensuring increased performance, efficient asset and resource utilization and significant productivity gains.

PDF Accelerator is the ideal solution to quickly and easily address the challenges of problematic PDFs caused by poor document composition, faulty rendering algorithms, concatenation or repurposing files. Robust configuration and tuning capabilities ensure PDFs can be streamlined and optimized based on your specific requirements. These powerful capabilities can be implemented across many applications without configuration changes.

For print and mail organizations, PDF Accelerator solves the business challenges of efficiently managing the processing of large, complex PDF applications, including legacy applications. When combined with components such as our document re-engineering solution, Operations Express,  print changes and optimization are processed within a single pass, ensuring high volume operations can produce superior results at speed – maximizing asset utilization and operational efficiency.



Improve PDF processing performance

Standardize PDF structures and combines or eliminates duplicate resources for significantly faster processing and turnaround time.

Deliver high quality print results

Optimize images and graphics to meet the specific requirements of the target channel/delivery devices.

Flexible, high performance print processing

Optimize applications for processing on target devices at rated speed.

Save costs on PDF storage requirements

Minimize file sizes through compression, color management and streamlining fonts for fast viewing and reduced storage costs.

Business Challenge

To remain competitive and profitable, print and mail organizations are challenged to optimize productivity and reduce costs while managing a broad spectrum of print  applications. With the increased use of PDFs for the delivery of customer communications, organizations are having to manage and process complex transactional PDFs, including those that might be less than ideal.

Increasingly, this results in extended processing times, extended print windows or downtime, poor print quality, workflow delays, additional resource requirements, missed SLAs, etc. Organizations need purpose-built, flexible solutions that enable the efficient and cost-effective processing of any PDF printstream.
