electronic documents theme
The way we manage information in this social and mobile era is being transformed. The number of devices on which we consume information has proliferated and there has been an explosion of digital content as communication channels have multiplied. We expect to use our desktops, smart phones, tablets, netbooks and eReaders interchangeably. Application developers need reliable partners with a proven track record to get solutions to market quickly, keep engineering risk to a minimum and development costs well under control.

Document experts

We’ve been experts in PDF since the format’s inception in 1993 and even today are still actively involved in PDF ISO standards committees. In 2003, due to our expertise in document formats, Microsoft asked us to provide proof of concept and development services for XPS, Microsoft’s new print and document format. Our core technology handles PDF, XPS, PostScript®, PCL and can convert proprietary formats into PDF.

PDF/A compliant for archiving

Corporations, government departments, the financial and legal sectors are just some who benefit the most from adopting a common standard for long-term preservation and retrieval of electronic documents. Our platforms allow your users to product PDF/A compliant documents. Global Graphics’ CTO Martin Bailey is the UK primary expert on PDF/A and active on the ISO standards committee.
