Nitro PDF Software Announces New Update for Nitro PDF Professional, Now Includes PDF-to-Excel Conversion

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2009) - Nitro PDF Software, the company that revolutionized the PDF software space with the introduction of the first true alternative to Adobe® Acrobat®, today announced the release of a significant update for Nitro PDF Professional Version 6, with exciting new features that further cement its position as the desktop PDF solution of choice for business users.

The most important new feature in Version 6.0.1 is the inclusion of Nitro's widely-lauded PDF-to-Excel technology, previously only available as part of Nitro's PDF to Excel online service. This feature allows users to quickly and easily create highly-editable XLS files, allowing for effortless re-use of tables and spreadsheets from PDF files in Microsoft® Excel®, OpenOffice®, Google® Docs, and WordPerfect®.

The latest release also includes enhanced scan-to-PDF functionality, with the introduction of an improved TWAIN library that provides greater support for scanners with automatic document feeders, as well as multi-page and double-sided documents.

"Following the enormous success of our free online service, PDF to Excel, it was a logical next step to introduce this popular feature within our flagship product," stated Nitro's CEO, Sam Chandler. "PDF and XLS are de facto business standards when it comes to electronic documents, and now users of Nitro Pro can take advantage of our industry-leading conversion, in-program. This, along with the newly-upgraded scanning capabilities, fortifies Nitro's position as the most cost-effective and fully-featured desktop PDF solution for business."
