Nitro Productivity Suite blasts into PDF and e-signing market


Nitro Software's new Nitro Productivity Suite combines Acrobat alternative Nitro Pro with the browser-based Nitro Cloud.

According to Nitro, this combination allows users to access and edit stored documents from cloud and on-premises repositories such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive and SharePoint, and initiate an unlimited number of e-signature requests through any desktop or mobile browser.

"Our customers are realising that while more than 70% of documents in their organisations are PDFs, less than 15% of their workers have the capabilities to edit PDFs or eSign those documents," said Nitro founder and chief executive Sam Chandler.

"Businesses today are experiencing digital transformation blockers. They need a faster, easier way to edit, sign, and share documents instead of printing, signing with a pen, scanning, and emailing.

"Over half of printing in an organisation is for signing documents. These antiquated, inefficient document habits not only hold back paperless progress, they also make it difficult to track and manage common signature workflows with others."

The Nitro Productivity Suite is available immediately. Pricing starts at $242 for a single-user perpetual licence. Business and enterprise subscription plans are available for as few as 11 users, but pricing is on application.

The business plan includes Nitro Pro, Nitro Cloud, Nitro Admin (add and remove users, manage permissions, reassign licences), and Nitro VIP Access (product updates, plus premium support with four-hour response times). The enterprise plan for eligible customers adds Nitro Analytics (reveals users' document workflows), Customer Success (assistance with initial rollout and ongoing use, and premium Nitro VIP Access (two-hour response).

Real estate firm JLL's head of IT for Australia, Andrew Clowes, said, "We set ourselves some ambitious goals to eliminate all manual processes by 2020.

"It was about digitising and getting rid of paper, but it was also introducing efficient workflows into the organisation. By deploying more digital tools such as Nitro across our Australian offices, we have re-engineered the way we work."
