Track Adobe Acrobat PDF documents

Software developer Remote Approach announces the launch of a new online service, that enables clients to track and manage Adobe Acrobat (PDF) documents through multiple distribution channels.

The online service allows users to easily tag their PDF documents so that when distributed, the PDF automatically interacts with a reporting system. This allows Remote Approach clients to see whether their documents are being read – not just downloaded – and if they are being forwarded and distributed through channels like email and peer to peer.
“A lot of clients don’t measure their full audience, relying only on their web site statistics,” said John Bielby, President of Remote Approach. “Using this service will allow them to realize how widespread their PDF documents are being distributed. From a dollars and cents perspective, it’s particularly important to companies trying to establish return on investment metrics for their online distribution channels.”
Security also plays a factor in the importance of the service. As part of our pre-launch, we worked with a number of clients who needed to know if their confidential documents were being distributed and read outside the company. The Remote Approach reporting interface allows them to find this information out quickly and at will.
Using the easy, graphical reporting interface, Remote Approach clients can view and analyze reports in real time. With a variety of pre-built reports available, quick access to high level analysis is at your fingertips. As well, Remote Approach offers built in functionality to export raw logs into the reporting or analysis tool of your choice.
