Rocket Software today released the latest version of Rocket Folio, 4.9, which helps users decrease the time and cost of delivering enriched PDF content by allowing them to interact directly with PDFs and to store, manage and search large numbers of documents. The key benefits of the new version include:
• Increased usability - Users can quickly and easily navigate through PDF content to scroll through content line by line or to jump from one section to another. Selecting, copying, and pasting PDF text and tagging down to the paragraph level for increased usability are also supported.
• Edit over PDF for enriched intelligence PDF files can now be augmented to include an overlay of relevant external content, giving end-users greater intelligence on the overall topic at hand. Content developers can add hyperlinks for recommended reading, sidebar notes, and custom indexing features to specific words, paragraphs, or sections directly in the PDF to categorize and leverage key pieces of information.
• Accelerated time-to-market With PDF files delivered in their native format, resources are no longer required to address formatting issues when converting content into Folio.
Long-standing Folio users are excited about the software's new capabilities. Ronald Murray, Controller at Vertical Structures, Inc., has used Folio for more than 15 years, and says that,“Folio 4.9 allows our engineering team to directly update drawing specs that are stored as PDFs; adding annotations of design updates, suggested substitute parts and hyperlinks to previous connection issues. This provides tremendous value; helping to decrease time to fabrication as well as providing suggested best practices, helping us to pioneer highest quality and quickest service.”
Bob Potter, Vice President and General Manager of the Business Intelligence/Analytics Business Unit at Rocket Software, says,"The release of Folio 4.9 is significant because it increases our ability to help users manage a notoriously challenging file format. PDFs offer a lot of benefits for organizations in many fields, but it can be challenging to search for the right information in a file - or across dozens or hundreds of files. This new version solves a clear need, and we look forward to helping users maximize the value of their data, regardless of what format it is in."
