PDFTron purchases document automation provider Windward Studios

PDFTron Systems, a provider of document technology solutions for software developers, has acquired Windward Studios, a Colorado-based leader in document automation and generation technology. According to PDFTron, with this addition, its platform is the world's only source of both client-side document generation and no-code document automation capabilities. It also marks the fifth acquisition as part of PDFTron's roadmap acceleration strategy since a $71-million growth investment by Silversmith Capital Partners in May 2019. 

"The combination of Windward Studios and PDFTron fundamentally broadens what we offer our enterprise customers," stated PDFTron CEO Catherine Andersz. "Together, we now provide a single, definitive platform for adding comprehensive document automation, generation, and collaboration capabilities to any software. That includes features to view, annotate, edit, and sign documents generated dynamically from over 100 data sources, and a full spectrum of high-, low- and no-code developer options. Whether you want to add competitive advantage to commercial software, quickly snap together a custom business application, or integrate off-the-shelf technology—we have what you need. App developers, integrators and admins, as well as enterprise users and consumers, can now seamlessly deploy digital content capabilities and harness the performance and security of PDFTron's powerful client-side processing."

Headquartered in Northglenn, Colorado, Windward Studios is a developer of document automation software for developers and application administrators. The flagship Windward Core API allows software developers to add dynamic client-side document generation capabilities to their applications in as little as 11 lines of code. Windward Hub empowers enterprise application configurators to quickly add document automation workflows to their instance of popular enterprise applications with simple configuration and no code. Pre-built integrations to Salesforce.com and HubSpot enable CRM customers to extend document automation capabilities to their users, streamlining sales and marketing workflows.

"PDFTron and Windward have been innovating with the common goal of shortening the time and investment required by our customers to digitize their business processes. PDFTron is the definitive platform for collaborating on digital content, while we have focused on delivering the best document automation solution possible," said David Thielen, co-founder, president and CEO of Windward Studios. "We operate on the shared belief that to drive real change, we must offer solutions for both developers and enterprise application configurators: those who code and those who don't. This kind of vision and innovation is hard to achieve, and it's incredibly exciting to bring the best of both worlds together for the benefit of our customers."
