Optimize Batches of PDF Files
A batch of PDF files is simply a large volume of PDFs. This often comes about as the result of scanning a large amount of documents. Although PDF is widely used and supports a variety of media it is limited in the fact that it is merely an image file of the original document. You cannot edit or search through a PDF at all. You have to go through hundreds of pages just to find specific information. Fortunately you can optimize batches of PDF files through compression, which makes the PDF smaller; and OCR, which renders it text searchable.
How Are PDF Files Optimized?
PDFs are easy to view and share but they do not support the important functions of editing and searching. Other times a PDF may become too large because of the amount of content it holds. Both of these detract from efficiency because you would have to waste time peering through each page to find information, and you would have to wait while the PDF is uploading or downloading. This is not ideal in a business environment where time could be better spent on other tasks. You can optimize batches of PDF files by compressing them and then using OCR. PDF compression reduces the overall size of the PDF without sacrificing quality or content, so the file looks exactly the same. OCR then converts the PDF into a machine encoded text file which allows it to be edited and searched. Now you can upload and download the PDF within seconds because of its smaller size. Similarly you can modify and process the file quickly since it is now text supported. Workflow is enhanced when you no longer have to waste time waiting.
PDF Optimization Software
A high volume of PDF files only means a lot of unnecessary work and wasted time because of its image formatting and potential size. When you optimize batches of PDF files you compress and OCR them to make them smaller, more manageable, and modifiable. For software that can perform both compression and OCR, look no further than the products of CVISION Technologies. Their products are known for their speed, accuracy, and versatility and come with a free 30 day trial.
