Xenos Group Inc. announced its membership in the PDF/A Competence Centre, an international alliance of software vendors and customers who support the ISO 19001-5 PDF/A standard. This standard enables organisations to store PDF files guaranteeing that they will be viewable indefinitely.
Xenos was an early adopter supporting this important emerging standard with the release, in September 2006, of the PDF/A generator in version 2.5 of its Xenos d2e Vision product. The Xenos d2eâ¢ product line parses document print streams, images and PDF files and transforms them into other print, image and electronic formats. Many of the worldâs largest organisations currently use Xenos d2e solutions to transform and repurpose their documents to PDF, print streams, images and HTML formats for online document presentment and archiving, as well as XML for business applications.
âWe listened carefully to our early adopter customers in France and elsewhere in Europe who required the ability to archive their documents in the PDF/A format. Now many organisations in the UK are beginning to adopt PDF/A as their de-facto standard long term archiving format,â explains Jeff Mills, Managing Director Xenos EMEA. âThis is especially critical for our customers to meet stringent regulatory compliance and legal obligations to their customers, staff and partners.â
âXenos is continuing its innovative market leadership in enabling the worldwide adoption of PDF/A. Through the PDF/A Competence Centre, we will extend our partnership with other organisations supporting the development of this standard,â Mills adds.
