Scaling Up While Keeping Costs Down

The Challenge
Boost user adoption and promote PDF standardization
Continental, a leading automotive manufacturer that employs over 200,000 workers globally massive global enterprise in the automotive sector, had a limited deployment of Adobe Acrobat®, but was unable to standardize on the solution due to its high cost-per-license. The majority of Continental’s users were left without the means to work with PDF documents in a meaningful, productive way. Because Continental sought to scale to so many more users, they needed an alternative PDF solution that would be easy to handle—for IT and end users alike.
The Solution
A strategic Adobe alternative
IT Contract & License Manager Tobias von der Heydt and team were impressed with the way Nitro approached the relationship from the start, treating it as a true partnership and always working to ensure the solution was a proper fit for the company’s needs.
