PDFTron Systems Inc., a provider of digital content services for software developers, has acquired Solid Documents, provider of document reconstruction and archiving solutions embedded in company internal software.
PDFTron Founder and CTO Ivan Nincic stated, “Converting PDF into MS Office formats is recognized as notoriously challenging within the document technology industry. And without question, Solid Documents is the leading innovator in this area of specialization. Its PDF to Word, Excel, and Powerpoint offers unparalleled accuracy in terms of formatting and content preservation. We welcome them on board as a significant complement to our team, roadmap, and future offering. Together, we can provide our customers unparalleled flexibility to have their users work with and edit documents the way they want, with all major document file types, and across all major platforms.”
“There are very few document technology companies and even fewer that focus on licensing SDKs and APIs,” said Michael Cartwright, CEO of Solid Documents. “From our perspective, therefore, we see PDFTron as a perfect fit. Being able to join forces with a document technology company that shares both our customer and product philosophies feels like a rare gift, and it underscores our commitment to our developer community. We are looking forward to that community, our technology and people thriving in the larger PDFTron ecosystem that we are now part of.”
PDFTron’s recent partnership with Solid Documents comes in the wake of a major strategic investment into PDFTron by leading private equity firm Thoma Bravo in May.
