Global Graphics, a developer of edocument and printing software, today announced the launch of gDoc Fusion, an edocument builder application, designed for exceptional usability to create, review, edit, share and archive PDF and XPS documents. gDoc Fusion’s powerful file format conversion also allows users to easily drag and drop pages from a wide range of different file formats into a single document that can be saved as a PDF, XPS or Microsoft Word document.
Global Graphics research shows that office workers say PDF software is the most difficult business application to use. gDoc Fusion has been designed specifically to ease the pressures suffered by office workers struggling with multiple document formats, offering straight-forward file format conversion and a number of special views to suit different ways of working.
“We created gDoc Fusion after extensive research into how people use office software. The over-riding message was that people want software that’s as easy to use as an iPhone, Facebook and other consumer gadgets,” said Gary Fry, CEO, Global Graphics. “It’s so simple that users don’t need any training, which saves companies significant rollout costs.”
The gDoc Fusion application includes a free PDF/XPS and Microsoft Word reader and is expected to be rolled out widely by SoHos, SMBs, enterprise, government and education establishments looking to reduce software licensing costs. The full version of gDoc Fusion costs £99 RRP for a single user licence.
“Current software has focussed on features rather than usability and office workers have struggled to assemble information in a range of different formats. By focussing on the everyday user problems and with a significantly lower price point, gDoc Fusion is supporting the wider rollout of PDF to the everyday worker,” added Fry.
gDoc Fusion lets users drag and drop pages from PDF, XPS, Word, Excel or PowerPoint files, edit them, and then save the results as a PDF, XPS or Word document without the user needing to have Microsoft Office or other software installed.
Page View – enables users to quickly read and modify individual PDF pages with the context-sensitive toolbar. Sticky notes and bookmarks can be added to pages and users can use text search and replace.
Document View – allows users to quickly extract, move, copy or delete pages between multiple open documents using easy drag and drop actions. Users can combine pages from multiple PowerPoint files, easily retaining different templates and formatting.
Flick View – saves time and printing costs by allowing users to quickly visually search through the pages to find information like with a physical document.
Finish Document Wizard – offers a guided process to enter document summary information, password security, opening view modes before saving with optimal settings for print or web publishing.
