pdfaPilot CLI

pdfaPilot CLI helps you guarantee that your documents can be archived and viewed long in the future, integrated in your own solution.

Make sure you have the right version

Easy integration

Through its command line interface, it provides an easy yet comprehensive way to integrate conversion to PDF/A and PDF/UA into document management or other systems. The well documented CLI will allow your supplier or internal IT team to integrate PDFA Pilot.

One-stop shop for all your archival needs

pdfaPilot supports all three PDF/A versions and doesn’t only convert PDF files, but also office documents, image formats and e-mails (attachments included) to searchable PDF/A files. It converts e-mail files into a PDF file that has the visual appearance of the e-mail as it is viewed in or printed by such e-mail applications. Because the expectations can differ between different organizations, pdfaPilot uses a template driven approach (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) that allows extensive customization.

Configures your automation exactly as you need it

Converting office documents, e-mails and their attachments, fixing PDF files and converting them into PDF/A … all of these tedious tasks can be handled in a fully automatic, unattended way with pdfaPilot Server. By setting up watched folders, all files dropped into a folder, picked up and handled in a fully automated way.

Scalable when needed

To deal with the increasing workload, pdfaPilot was built to deal with changes in workload. Through a simple licensing change, pdfaPilot Server can easily be converted into a pdfaPilot Dispatcher that does load balancing across several systems.

User friendly and always in control

Whether pdfaPilot Server is used or pdfaPilot Dispatcher shares the load across different systems, setting up and monitoring processing remains user friendly. pdfaPilot simplifies this by allowing remote configuration and remote monitoring across the network. From the desktop application, it is possible to start a local server or connect to one or more remote servers, enabling local testing and configuring a remote server.

Makes your PDF document universally accessible

PDF/UA offers a unique challenge: part of the requirements can be verified by software, but the other part requires human intervention. pdfaPilot handles the first part of the verification process completely. For human verification, functionalities are integrated to view the document in a structured and highlighted web view. After verification, a full compliance report can be created.
