PDF Tools AG - Customer testimonial - success story

High-quality PDF/A files with the 3-Heights® PDF to PDF/A Converter

High performance conversion of non standardized files into PDF/A format.

Application requirements

Interhyp was approached by one of its partners from the insurance and financial services industry to find a solution for electronic long-term archiving. In order to safeguard the company’s data, all source files would have to be converted into PDF/A format and added to a newly created archive. As well as being technically sound, the product also had to meet the partner’s high expectations in terms of performance and output quality. Source files in various image formats (e.g. JPG, GIF, TIFF, PNG and BMP) including PDF files had been uploaded via a user portal for further processing and converting, which posed an additional challenge during conversion, as there were no standards in place to ensure correct formatting.

Customer benefits

In the past, the partner had printed out the documents and added them manually to a physical archive. By switching to an electronic long-term archive, Interhyp was able to offer its partner a convenient solution that has not only made its processes more effective but also added value by saving time and money.


The search for a suitable solution began with selecting potential products that had to meet clearly defined criteria to make it onto the shortlist. The products identified in this way were then subjected to a range of extensive tests with various types of documents from different sources. After analyzing all of the test results, Interhyp opted for the 3-Heights® PDF to PDF/A Converter from PDF Tools AG, which scored highly in terms of both output quality and overall performance. The quick and expert assistance provided by the support team in Switzerland during the evaluation phase also helped make the 3-Heights® PDF to PDF/A Converter the obvious choice.
