Appligent Releases APSplit


Tool splits lengthy PDF files into pages or sections, saving as new documents

Lansdowne, PA, April 21, 2002- Appligent, Inc., (www.appligent.com), a leading provider of Portable Document Format (PDF)-related software solutions, today announced the release of APSplit, a low-cost production-grade software utility that extracts pages or sections from PDF files and saves them as new documents. This enables businesses and organizations to cut down on lengthy download times for large PDF documents that include additional forms and sections not required for every user.

APSplit allows organizations to streamline their document management processes. Many businesses today produce large PDF documents that serve multiple purposes, but end-users often require only a small portion of the document. APSplit can split these files by bookmarks, page ranges, lists of multiple page ranges and more, so they can be more easily accessed and utilized for specific purposes. For example, if a user only needs pages 5-10 of a 1,200-page PDF document, APSplit extracts those pages and either saves them together as a new PDF file or saves each page individually. APSplit also splits PDF files within a directory. For example, it takes the table of contents and executive summary of each PDF file within a directory and saves them to a new directory.

"When you look at the automated processes used by many organizations today, you see that they either create PDF documents as single processes or combine them into one extremely large document," says Mark Gavin, Chief Technology Officer, Appligent. "APSplit allows the user to use virtually any parameter to split PDF files into more logical, manageable sections." Splitting lengthy PDF files into separate documents also makes them easier to handle. Instead of transporting a hundred-page document via e-mail and over the Internet, users can distribute specific sections or pages of interest to the intended recipient, resulting in faster download times. User manuals, product information, electronic books and collections of forms generated by automatic processes are just some of the types of PDF documents that can be split apart. APSplit also supports linearization of PDF, sometimes called optimization, so users can view a document while it is being downloaded from the Internet.

APSplit is a standalone product and can run in either desktop or server environments. It can also be integrated with other Appligent utilities and applications like StampPDF Batch, FDFMerge and SecurSign to build powerful automated solutions for document processing. APSplit is available for Windows NT/2000/XP, Solaris, Red Hat Linux, AIX and HP-UX, as well as Mac OS X. APSplit retails for $199 per server.
