Foxit PhantomPDF – The Superior Adobe® Acrobat® Replacement Solution

IT organizations are being asked do to more with less, as tight budgets get stretched ever tighter. Ask yourself a basic question: Can you get the same capabilities from an Adobe Acrobat alternative but at much lower cost? There are some compelling reasons for companies to consider Foxit PhantomPDF as your Adobe Acrobat replacement solution.

  • Better value: Adobe Acrobat costs over 3 times more. With so many similar functions and uses at a much lower price, it’s easy to see why PhantomPDF is the best Adobe Acrobat alternative.
  • Cost effective upgrade: It’s more economical to purchase Foxit PhantomPDF than upgrade to the next version of Adobe Acrobat – making it the smart choice for Acrobat replacement.
  • Deploy to more users: With this Adobe Acrobat alternative, robust PDF capabilities can be deployed to more users on the same budget.
  • Faster: With PhantomPDF, enduring long waits to open PDFs or downloading numerous updates are a thing of the past.
  • More lightweight: No bloatware here, this Adobe Acrobat alternative is easy to deploy without wasting valuable computing resources.
  • Standards-compliant: PhantomPDF works with your existing PDFs. This makes replacing Adobe Acrobat very quick and easy.
  • More secure: If security is a concern, Foxit’s Adobe Acrobat replacement offers better protection against security vulnerabilities.
  • Familiar user interface: Microsoft Office style ribbon user interface makes transitioning users easy.
  • Better editing: Edit text and images like a professional, with word processing like capabilities.
  • Keeps sensitive data protected: The only Acrobat alternative that integrates with Microsoft Active Directory Rights Managements Services and Azure Active Directory Rights Management.
  • Get control of your content: PhantomPDF supports ConnectedPDF features, which extends the ISO PDF standard to allow each PDF to carry a unique identifier that leverages the power of cloud to keep you and your PDFs connected, and enables you to track, share, and protect your documents easily.
