Technology play enhances PDFTron’s definitive offering with best-in-class document reconstruction and archiving

VANCOUVER, BC – August 26, 2021 – PDFTron Systems Inc., the world’s leading provider of digital content solutions for software developers, today announced the acquisition of Solid Documents, provider of best-in-class document reconstruction and archiving solutions embedded in blue-chip company internal software, including that of Coca-Cola and Volvo, and in major commercial document applications, such as Adobe’s flagship PDF product line, Acrobat.

“There are very few document technology companies and even fewer that focus on licensing SDKs and APIs,” said Michael Cartwright, CEO of Solid Documents. “From our perspective, therefore, we see PDFTron as a perfect fit. Being able to join forces with a document technology company that shares both our customer and product philosophies feels like a rare gift, and it underscores our commitment to our developer community. We are looking forward to that community, our technology and people thriving in the larger PDFTron ecosystem that we are now part of.”

May 2021. Thoma Bravo’s investment has accelerated PDFTron’s footprint growth strategy as it establishes the first truly end-to-end digital content platform. This provides for comprehensive digital content viewing and collaboration, and document generation abilities, with diverse no-, low-, and high-code deployment options for those who wish to add professional features to their applications, shorten development timelines, improve security, and reduce development costs.
