PDF & PDF/A

Merge, Embed, Encrypt, Password protect or apply form fields to your PDF

Instead of printing all your documents, InterForm allows you to create multiple PDF formats. All PDFs are genuinely searchable PDF files that can automatically be archived and emailed.

InterForm Intelligent Output Management natively supports PDF, PDF/A 1b, and PDF/A 2b. PDF/A 3b is supported through the AdvancedPDF module. The PDF/A format ensures that you are able to reproduce the exact same PDF format and content in the future. Everything that is required to render the document the exact same way, every time, is embedded in the PDF/A file: fonts, color profiles, images, etc.

PDF/A is the recognized file format for electronic document archiving in many countries. Read more about our AdvancedPDF module that offers features like embedded PDF and PDF Security/Digital signature.

The PDF format is far richer than the generic usage reflects, and you can do more with a PDF than archiving it electronically or sending it in an email. With the AdvancedPDF module, we extend the standard PDF functionality that InterForm offers.

PDF Forms

Apply form fields to your PDFs in a very easy and simple way. You can select between various form field types like Text, checkboxes, drop-down, etc.

Sending PDFs with fillable form fields can in many situations be a more practical way to collect and standardize data.

PDF forms are ideal for documents like contracts, confirmations, Tax forms, Vendor Registration, Events, Returns, and many other things. 

Extract Data

The data registered in the form is saved in a standard way allowing you to easily extract the data.

Encryption & Password protection of PDF files

Encrypting and password protecting PDF files is a functionality used in many industries to prevent unauthorized personnel from reading sensitive documents.

We use a standard PDF Encryption 1.4 (Version 2, Revision 3) with 128-bit RC4 encryption and MD5 Hash Algorithm to secure the content.

Password protection is managed with a Master and a User password.

Digital Signature & Electronic Invoicing

Digital signatures are replacing physical signatures in many countries. Countries like Germany, Poland, Brazil, Spain, Italy, and others all have their own regulation standards for qualified digital signatures.

Ensure your PDF files are legally enforceable by applying software certificates like PKCS#12 (.pfx) w/ x.509 certificates to your PDF files. For these solutions, both specific hardware and software may be required.

Contact us to learn more about how we help customers with electronic invoicing and digital signatures.

Embed files into your PDF

Implement the embed feature and improve the way you communicate with suppliers and customers. With AdvancedPDF, we make it possible to embed files into a PDF file from any platform. Use the master PDF as a container for the content referenced elsewhere and send only a single attachment that includes all of the information a recipient needs. See some examples below.

With the AdvancedPDF module, you can automatically match and include content, eliminating time-consuming processes like manually searching for matches, allowing faster customer service responses. 

Merge & combine PDF files

The era of sending multiple PDF files by email files is over. Use AdvancedPDF to merge any PDF files into just one superior structured PDF.

For example, you can merge any document with your standard invoices, order confirmations, account statements, etc. You can also structure the merged document as you wish, with a bookmark list, or as a complete overview for the receiver.

You can also, for example, automatically send your customers a Reminder Notification, which can be merged together with copies of unpaid invoices or any other relevant documents.
