Get a Competitive Edge

PDF and Office files are common on desktop and mobile platforms, yet these complex standards are a huge testing challenge for app vendors. Your customers can quickly become frustrated and abandon your app if it doesn’t correctly process their files.

There are many dimensions to PDF and Office Open XML that can cause problems for software that creates or consumes these formats. One major challenge is the breadth of the features that PDF and Office standards provide. There are thousands of operators and attributes that compose these individual standards.

The huge number of applications and systems that produce PDF and Office files use diverse PDF and Office commands and attributes. And these applications are used on a variety of different computing and mobile platforms ranging from desktop computers to mobile phones. PDFs and Office files can be generated and edited on virtually any modern computing platform.

PDF Testing Challenges for App Developers

Solving the Testing Challenge

QualityLogic now offers a tailor-made App Vendors Start Kit. The Kit improves the ability of applications to deal with this complex testing challenge. If your app views, edits, analyzes, converts, preflights or optimizes PDF or OOXML file formats, the App Vendor Starter Kit will save you time and money.

Make the move to better quality. Migrate away from ad hoc testing using customer’s or your own test files and use the trusted standard that many global leaders have relied on for decades.

The App Vendor Starter Kit brings you robust test files for PDF and Office formats. The Kit leverages QualityLogic’s industry-standard conformance and interoperability test suites. These tests are designed around the PDF and Office specifications and the features of key applications that can produce them.
