Adobe Introduces Acrobat Elements Server for
Enterprise-wide PDF Creation
“Wharton faculty, students and staff rely on Adobe PDF for sharing information across the enterprise,” said Kendall Whitehouse, director of Advanced Technology Development for the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, which enrolls thousands and employs hundreds across 11 academic departments and 17 research centers. “For a global organization, with faculty and students frequently studying and working across the continent and around the globe, the flexibility of offering server-based PDF creation via the Web from anywhere, at any time and on any computer will be invaluable.”
Acrobat Elements Server supports Adobe PDF conversion from numerous desktop file types, including Microsoft® Word, Excel and PowerPoint®, Corel® WordPerfect®, Adobe Photoshop® and many popular image formats. Like the entire Acrobat 6.0 family, Acrobat Elements Server generates high-quality Adobe PDF files based on the latest version of the PDF specification.
After an Adobe PDF file is generated by Acrobat Elements Server and returned to the requestor, it can be more securely and reliably distributed to colleagues, partners and customers across the extended enterprise. To view and print PDF files created by the product, users can employ free Adobe Reader® software. The company has distributed over half-a-billion copies of Adobe Reader since its 1993 introduction.
