Foxit Software Releases Signature PDF Platform on Mac

Foxit Software, a provider of fast, affordable, and secure PDF solutions, is launching its PhantomPDF platoform on Mac, allowing users to standardize documents with Foxit Software. This will be Foxit’s first PDF editing solution for the macOS.

“Regardless of what the percentage of Mac users are, most large enterprises have at least some Mac users if not more,” said Frank Kettenstock, VP of marketing. “What they really wanted was a single vendor, single product across all their users. We really wanted to better meet their needs so that was a big motivator for us to implement Phantom on macOS.”

PhantomPDF Mac v3.0 provides a wide range of the most popular features of PDF editing software, including the editing of text, headers and footers; creation and export of PDFs; OCR capabilities; organization of PDF files, including inserting, merging and separating PDF files; document signing and protection; annotation; and navigation of documents by bookmarks.

A leading innovator of PDF technology, Foxit Software intends to continuously add new features to its Mac solution in the coming months.

“We really look at this as a three-step process,” Kettenstock said.

The first step is the announcement and shipment of the product to Mac users. Then the second step is releasing another update at the beginning of next year that will match the capabilities already available on Windows. Then the third phase will link up the macOS version with the Windows version with product updates.

A wide range of users will benefit the most from this including document authors, users who develop and share documents, large enterprises, businesses, and more, explained Kettenstock.

“So not only can we help you generate your document but we can help you manage it later in terms of who’s read it, what have they done, things like that,” Kettenstock said. “Those are the type of tools we look to augment in our Mac version.”

Foxit Software also recently announced its Customer First Program to help organizations of all sizes make the switch to better PDF technology, value, and service.

 As part of the program, Foxit is offering customers currently licensing Adobe Acrobat free use of Foxit PhantomPDF software until their current licenses expire, up to a maximum of six months. Any organization with 100 or more users of Adobe Acrobat software may be eligible to participate in Foxit’s Customer First Program.

The company hopes to update collaboration capabilities, offer new integrations with cloud, implement PDF management, and more.

“We’re looking forward to supporting Mac users,” Kettenstock said. “We’re very excited to deliver this and work with our Mac users in terms of improving our product and ways we can help them build better documents.”
