FREMONT, Calif. - (August 13, 2020)-- Foxit Software, a leading provider of innovative PDF products and services, helping knowledge workers to increase their productivity and do more with documents, today announced its new PhantomPDF Competitive Replacement Program designed to help businesses save money while expanding their PDF editing licenses at a time of rapidly growing need.

Foxit PhantomPDF software is the leading PDF editing technology alternative to Adobe Acrobat, offering a comprehensive, feature-rich, easy-to-use and far more affordable solution for business users. The company recently announced a major upgrade to its entire PDF software line, including the new Foxit Admin Console and Update Server to automate and improve enterprise management of software licenses and updates.

“The use and need for PDF software are growing in most businesses as companies continue to become more digital. That’s particularly true in the current remote work environment,” said Andrew Travis, senior vice president of sales for Foxit’s End User Productivity Business Unit. “Many businesses want to increase their PDF editing licenses, but in the current situation, budgets are tight. This new replacement program will allow them to both reduce costs and increase seats.”

“Foxit PhantomPDF is the premier alternative to Acrobat, with a compelling value proposition of great technology and service at a lower cost,” Travis added. “Our new replacement offer makes switching to PhantomPDF even more compelling and logical.”
