Adobe has improved its server software used for handling the flow of business forms in the PDF format.
Version 7 of Adobe LifeCycle Document Services includes enhanced processing and offers more application design tools to customers.
The LifeCycle Document Services suite costs from £38,000 per server and can be used to easily share documents internally and between different companies.
Document management and distribution is an area in which both IBM and Microsoft are looking to expand.
IBM recently acquired electronic business forms company PureEdge, and Microsoft is developing “Metro”, a document system set to rival Adobe’s Acrobat solution.
