The selective access to the contents of a PDF document is a necessary prerequisite for the automated processing in content-controlled workflows. Typical applications are: classification of documents, extraction of metadata for indexing, extraction of text for search engines, transfer of images to specialized image processing tools, conversion of PDF files to the ePub format, and many more.

The 3‑Heights™ PDF Extract  has a unique advanced text extraction feature. Much care was used in the development of the machine readability (Unicode) and the word building and separation process, in PDF not taken for granted, with good success, as the experiences of our customers show.

Quickcomm initially was manually processing telecom PDF invoices that contained information not available in the normal data feeds from telecom vendors.
