Did Microsoft Just Make your Archives Obsolete?

Microsoft’s recent announcement that they were discontinuing support for some older file formats, including Microsoft Office files, caught many by surprise. But it does serve as a wake-up call for businesses that archive documents in native file formats. These businesses may find they cannot open the archived Word files when they need them. If you archive documents in native file formats, you should consider switching to industry-standard formats, including PCL, TIFF, and PDF. These formats are supported by multiple vendors, so with strong industry backing, they aren’t likely to be obsolete down the road. SwiftView Tools can help with the transition.


Batch-print and Capture PDF and Native Files with New SwiftPublish

eLynx is pleased to announce the release of SwiftPublish, version 2.8. This release adds new capabilities to SwiftPublish that greatly enhance its value and usability as a document capture tool. SwiftPublish is a server-based application that creates print-ready PCL or archive-ready TIFF or PDF files from native files produced by any Windows® application, including Microsoft Office®, Adobe PDF, or Windows-based line-of-business applications.
