PDF Editing Now Available In Google Drive
Docudesk announces its free PDF editor is now available for PDFs in Google Drive™. PDFzen is a free alternative to PDF software, letting users mark up and collaborate on PDFs in Google Drive. PDFzen is available for free in the Chrome™ Web Store.
According to CEO Darren Matheny, PDFzen is the polar opposite of other PDF editors. “Most PDF software can be really confusing to users. There is no learning curve to PDFzen. No user guide is required. The leading PDF editor requires users to install bloated, legacy software. PDFzen is lightweight and elegantly simple, and is now available directly within Google Drive.”
Responsive HTML5 means that PDFzen is cross-platform and there is no software to download. Users can edit, share, and fax PDFs directly from the browser, and is now available for documents in Google Drive. "The bottom line for users is that PDFzen makes document collaboration painless. You can markup a document just like you would if it were on your desk - even place a wet ink signature,” Matheny said. For those dealing with users still stuck in the 20th century, faxes can be sent with PDFzen for a nominal fee. All of this can be done in the web browser with nothing to install. It doesn't matter if users are on a PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad.
As a web application, PDFzen makes it easy to share and collaborate on documents. Docudesk has been refining its online document tools since 2007, bringing the best of this technology to PDFzen. "We debuted the first HTML5 PDF editor in 2008. Many users and companies are now storing their documents in the cloud,” said Docudesk Vice President Nicholas Thomas. “This integration gives users the functionality of PDFzen for the documents they already use in Google Drive.”
Users can share links privately for collaboration, publish directly to social media, or embed a document on their own site. The best news for end-users however, will probably be the price tag. Although desktop PDF software can cost hundreds of dollars, PDFzen will always be free to mark up, share and collaborate on documents. The only option that users can incur expense for is the secure faxing feature. The pricing is inexpensive and the options are simple with pay-as-you-go and monthly choices.
Although no software is required to use PDFzen, Docudesk offers a useful free desktop tool in deskPDF Reader (PC & Mac). With this application installed users can create PDF files and upload to PDFzen with one click, making it easy to publish documents to the web directly from the desktop. Scan to PDF is also included in the Windows version of this free PDF reader, making deskPDF Reader + PDFzen with Google Drive integration an ideal free combo for users moving towards a paperless office.
