SOLUTION
Nitro PDF Pro
Scalable solutions & streamlined workflows
THE CHALLENGE
Centralize fragmented workflows with a single solution.
After a review of PDF software in use across the organization, Howden Group, a world-class engineering company, uncovered 27 different PDF products and versions – resulting in a myriad of incompatibility challenges. One-third of the installed PDF software was not the latest version and had outdated security patches, while many products did not offer product support or training resources. A great deal of Howden’s users required PDF editing capabilities, and some associates were using multiple PDF products for printing and editing purposes.
THE SOLUTION
Streamlined PDF workflows—company-wide
Serving an ever-growing team of 6,000 employees in 27 countries, Howden’s IT team needed a reliable document productivity partner to provide scalable solutions for the company. After reviewing the market-leading PDF solutions for functionality, usability, and cost, Aiden Curran, IT Service Delivery Manager, chose Nitro as the solution best suited to solving its document and workflow challenges. From reviewing Nitro as a company, it was apparent that they are focused solely on PDF products and indeed own their IP, so this makes security releases and development key to their business support practices.

The Results

Thanks to Nitro, Howden has standardized its PDF solution, reducing the risk of non-compliance, bolstering security, and accelerating productivity across the organization.
