The following provides examples of common usage scenarios:
- An enterprise where CAD documents need to be viewed by all users. Using this component within the server removes the necessity of having the CAD application installed on each and every desktop just to view the CAD files. Instead, with the CAD application installed centrally, the conversion of the CAD file occurs on the server. Each user may then view the converted PDF file via a PDF Reader application.
- Whenever there is a need to send documents to an external organization and the external entity may not be running the application associated with the documents. Conversion of documents to PDF will remove environment specific requirements as PDF Readers may be obtained freely.
- Receive Fax from fax-server, convert to PDF files, and store for archival purposes.
- Read files from a directory in batch-mode and convert into PDF files.
- A company requiring all project data to be converted and maintained into an archived database, can design a process with an email capture component and PDF Converter. The process will read emails with attachments from an email account and convert them into PDF and store into a directory. In this situation, employees are able to archive documents, simply by sending email with attachment to the designated email account.
- The MFP devices can be configured with an archive button, so that by pressing this button, images are scanned in, and sent to PDF Converter component for conversion. The PDF formatted files are archived into a designated directory.
