Nitro-powered Nitro Cloud is a free service that converts PDF files to Word documents (or any Microsoft Office file type!) and vice versa.
When engineers, designers, and architects conceive and construct our buildings, parks, and roads, precision can never be overvalued. Depending on scale in their drawings and mockups, a fraction of a centimeter on paper can easily translate into meters in construction. And with deadlines, budgets, and safety as key priorities, incorrect measurements can often lead to catastrophe.
From start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, businesses all over the world use Nitro Pro for their digital document needs. While digital documents are serious business, they’re not just for businesses. A large majority of students and members of the academic community are reading, making and collaborating with PDF files regularly.
Nitro Cloud means, for the first time, that our desktop users can share documents online with anyone, and enable every participant in that workflow to collaborate on and sign those documents – with no desktop software required. Everything happens in the browser, and it’s all tracked – including document views, versions, markup, and comments.
When collaborating with a team, the process of comparing your original document with an edited version is like playing a concentration game, except it’s not fun. Often times there’s at least one team member who forgets to track changes, add notes, delete content, or edit graphics. The inconsistencies can cause painstaking manual comparison that slows down workflows with time-consuming searches for both edits and the correct document version.
Since Microsoft Word 2008, users have transitioned from the classic .doc files to the new.docx file–but why?
At first glance, it may seem like that “X” is merely a change in naming conventions, a minor inconvenience because you need to have a recent version of Word to use it. In actuality, that “X” signifies improvements to the file format that benefit everyone from authors to engineers. Think of it as a newer, mightier version of an application you love.
For business users, Nitro Pro’s QuickSign™ functionality is one of the most useful tools the program offers. It not only saves valuable time by preventing the need to print a contract or agreement, sign it, scan it back into a digital file, and return it via email—QuickSign also helps reduce expenditures on paper, printer ink, and file storage, among other hard costs.
