Streamlined conversion to PDF with callas pdfToolbox 5

Converting to PDF In batch!
While PDF is well established as the format for file exchange, it’s very common to receive other file formats from customers. Microsoft Word files are a typical example just as – still – PostScript and EPS files. And probably you don’t receive just the one Word or PostScript file. So how do you deal with a whole folder of files, or with a regular in-flow of files you want to treat automatically?

callas pdfToolbox 5 converts many file formats into good-for-production PDF files
