Interstate Companies Select Foxit Reader as Standard Enterprise PDF Reader

Interstate Companies has selected Foxit Reader to be its standard enterprise PDF reader. Interstate had been using Adobe (News - Alert) Reader as its corporate standard, but users were complaining that it was too slow when launching documents and when scrolling through documents. So, Interstate decided to run a pilot of Foxit Reader for their Warranty Department.

Officials with Foxit Corporation claimed that as Foxit Reader ran much faster and smoother, Interstate decided to replace Adobe Reader with Foxit Reader on their gold desktop image. Interstate is now in the process of gradually migrating Adobe Acrobat Pro licenses to Foxit PhantomPDF to create, edit, collaborate on, and convert PDF documents.

"We are heavy users of PDF -- we use it for the parts, service, and manual websites; interacting with customers and suppliers; and internally in departments such as accounting, human resources, marketing, etc.," said Ben Miller, network administrator for Interstate, in a statement.  “As a result, we require a solution that is fast, affordable, and secure, and Foxit delivers.”

"Foxit provides Business Ready PDF solutions that are sensible alternatives to Adobe Reader and Acrobat," said Philip G. Lee, VP of enterprise sales at Foxit Corporation. Lee said that PDF is very important to enterprises, so it is good for enterprises to have viable choices in PDF suppliers.

In October, Foxit Corporation, a provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and helping secure PDF documents, had announced the availability of the Foxit Embedded PDF Software Development Kit (SDK) for developers building Windows Store apps. The SDK provides support for PDF display, annotate, enhanced security, digital signature, and pressure sensitive ink.
