Why should I archive PDFs?
Storing documents in digital form can often be easier and more convenient than keeping large, bulky hard copies. However, when important information is stored in an electronic database, there is always a risk of losing files if the computer is unable to read them due to changes in software. Fortunately, there is a special format, called PDF/A, for archiving files. PDF/A lets you archive PDFs in a format that can always be opened with a PDF/A reader, even if your other software is no longer compatible, thus eliminating the risk of information loss.
How can I archive PDFs?
You can archive PDFs using software that converts scanned documents into the proper PDF/A format. This process is easy with the proper tools, because a good program can do it automatically, minimizing the amount of work that you need to put in. Automatic, fast software is especially helpful if you work with large volumes of files.
Are there any tools that can help me archive PDFs?
You can now archive PDFs without any hassle. CVISION has developed a tool called DocArchiver that helps you store and manage your PDF files in the long term. DocArchiver will convert your documents into PDF/A for storage without loss, enabling you to find them and reopen them as needed.
