Improved Collaboration Capabilities
PdfCompressor improves collaboration capabilities. E-mailing images is a common and convenient way to share paper documents. According to the Radicati Group, in 2012, there were 89 billion business e-mails sent daily. According to the Osterman Research, 29% of corporate e-mails contain attachments—which mean there were approximately 25 billion e-mail attachments sent daily in 2012.
PdfCompressor is doubly useful when e-mailing document images. First, it ensures that scanned images are in a format - PDF- that most people can open without a special viewer. Second, it ensures that you are sending and receiving the smallest file sizes possible. This reduces strain on network bandwidth, e-mail servers, and desktop e-mail applications—as well as improves user experience by improving download and file opening speeds.
Bandwidth concerns become an even bigger factor when accessing files on mobile devices. Many data plans limit customers’ bandwidth usage per month. Downloading a 6 MB uncompressed JPEG image of a document is going to use up 17 times more bandwidth than downloading a 357K version of the same file after it has been run through PdfCompressor.
Enabling Efficient Usage of Bandwidth
A recent Nielson survey reported that in 2012, the average mobile data plan customer was utilizing twice as much data as in 20114, with indications that data usage will continue to grow. Multiple devices sharing a single corporate data plan compound concerns about bandwidth issues.
The bottom line is that no one wants to unnecessarily use up bandwidth that might be needed for other tasks later. In addition, data overages can get expensive, or become inconvenient if the data plan provider slows down transfer rates after users reach their limits. Utilizing PdfCompressor will enable your organization to create files that require 10% or less the bandwidth of uncompressed files. This could apply to service manuals, forms, reports, legal and financial documents—any type of file an employee would need, or want, to e-mail and/or access on a mobile phone or tablet.
Creating smaller files improves performance when you are sharing files through e-mail, and it becomes especially important as users migrate to using more mobile devices—with bandwidth usage on mobile plans limited and larger files using up more bandwidth.
