Litéra Simplifies Document Content Lifecycle Management With New LDF Management Suite for Comprehensive PDF Editing and Redaction

Litéra Next-Generation LDF Management Software Is the Only Solution to Seamlessly Reflow PDF Content after Editing or Adding Text

MCLEANSVILLE, NC--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - Litéra® Corp., the leader in document content lifecycle management (DCLM), today released LDF®, a new PDF management suite designed to give professionals full PDF management capabilities at an affordable cost, without the need for separate PDF software. LDF is part of a complete suite of DCLM solutions from Litéra designed to empower organizations to securely collaborate, compare and cleanse documents as they evolve throughout their lifecycle.

Featuring Litéra's patent-pending technology, LDF is the only solution to enable users to add and edit text into a PDF document that will reflow seamlessly with the entire document. LDF also enables users to create and edit documents, redact irreversibly, append and create binders as well as add Bates numbering, notes, pictures and signatures to documents. With LDF, users can also split or separate multi-page PDF files into smaller files and compare PDF documents in Native format.

"Documents today are an evolving record of business for today's organizations and need to be intelligently managed throughout their lifecycle," says Deepak Massand, CEO of Litéra Corp. "LDF was designed to meet these needs based on input from some of the world's leading professional organizations. LDF provides the specific tools they need to simplify and manage their PDF documents and solves some of the most challenging aspects of PDF management through a simple, intuitive interface."

LDF resolves a long-standing problem associated with editing PDF documents. In the past, PDF management programs limited the editing to the size of the "string." Similar to a traditional word processor, users need the ability to add or delete text, and expect the document to wrap around and reflow. With LDF's content reflow tool, editing PDF documents and binders is seamless. As a result, all content edits, even inside tables, reflow automatically to the end of the document. LDF reflow functionality also supports the "find & replace" feature to further simplify large-scale and global edits to PDF documents and binders.

The company turned to Litéra to streamline its DCLM process saving significant time and money.
