Crawford Technologies Launches PDF Accelerator

Press release from the issuing company

Advanced Solution Optimizes PDF Processing Speed

Toronto, ON – Crawford Technologies, provider of innovative document solutions that streamline, improve and manage customer communications, announces the proven success of its solution for efficient management and processing of large PDF applications. PDF Accelerator was previously known as PRO Normalizer and is in use by many organizations worldwide. PDF Accelerator offers expanded features for streamlining and optimizing PDFs for print, ensuring increased performance, improved profitability, reduced costs and greater operational productivity.

PDF Accelerator is designed to help high-volume print operations optimize the processing of “print-ready” PDF client files. PDFs received from clients often do not support high-volume, rapid turnaround requirements, disrupting the entire production process and impacting SLA attainment and profitability. PDF Accelerator quickly and easily addresses the challenges of problematic PDF files. The solution is highly configurable and has been proven to rapidly interpret, convert and optimize problematic PDF files into streamlined PDFs for processing and printing.

Crawford Technologies reports PDF Accelerator’s performance is shown to be the fastest available on the market. The PDF files that it creates are highly streamlined PDF files that ensure that downstream processes are also streamlined. It contains configuration capabilities that also allow it to create the smallest possible PDF files to improve download times and reduce storage costs.

PDF files that have been processed by PDF Accelerator can be optimized to improve the performance of the RIP (Raster Image Processor) on high-speed digital printing systems, increasing the throughput and profitability of expensive inkjet presses.

This software is currently running in over 60 organizations worldwide. They are seeing results as exemplified by a customer who was able to reduce the processing time of a large PDF application from 7 hours down to 20 minutes.

“PDF Accelerator enables significantly faster processing, reducing pre-press processing job time and onboarding time,” said Ernie Crawford, president and CEO of Crawford Technologies. “It has been rewarding to see the impact this solution has delivered when it comes to improved processing times and optimizing overall operational performance and flexibility. For that reason, it deserved a name that reflected its strong capabilities.”

PRO Normalizer customers who are on maintenance agreements will be upgraded automatically to PDF Accelerator at no additional cost.

Crawford Technologies will be introducing the product at a webinar on August 6 at 11:00 a.m. ET. Click here to register.
