tru Independence Selects Foxit PDF Editor

Flexible Pricing Model and Full-Featured Editing Capabilities Lead tru Independence to Select Foxit PDF Editor for Registered Investment Advisor Clients

FREMONT, Calif. – (June 9, 2021) — Foxit, a leading provider of innovative PDF products and services, helping knowledge workers to increase their productivity and do more with documents, today announced that tru Independence has selected Foxit PDF Editor as its PDF software solution to provide their Registered Investment Advisor (RIAs) clients with full-featured editing capabilities within a flexible licensing and pricing model. For (RIAs) looking to split off from big brokerage firms, tru Independence provides all needed services, including help finding office space, hiring staff, and launching with services like transition intelligence, corporate structure design, practice management, and more.

The company needed a standardized PDF solution that would provide their many power user employees the PDF editing capabilities they needed. As tru evaluated different vendors, they eliminated Acrobat because Adobe’s licensing would have meant a 500% increase in cost, which was prohibitive. They also looked at Nitro PDF, Soda PDF, and others but they were all quickly eliminated for various reasons, including missing features, insufficient data security, or licensing issues.

“Foxit gave us a licensing model that worked and was all within budget,” Paul Dalton, Chief Technology Officer at tru Independence. “It’s a flexible model and while licensing was paramount, it was the full-featured editing capabilities that Foxit offers that really won over the tru team.”

Other factors that led to the selection of Foxit PDF Editor include:

·         Familiar Look and Feel - The ribbon interface in Foxit PDF Editor meant tru users immediately felt at home with its familiar, Microsoft Office-style look.

·         Ease of Creating Forms - Form creation no longer requires IT intervention, which was not the case with Adobe Acrobat.

·         World Class Support - tru was impressed with Foxit’s quick and responsive technical support

·         Strong Integration - DocuSign and Microsoft Office integration paves the way for some important future initiatives.

·         Streamlining New Account Creation - Foxit is allowing us to help our clients digitize onboarding of their own new clients.

·         Compliance - tru is leveraging Foxit’s advanced tools not only to create documents quickly but also to share them securely.

Foxit PDF Editor empowers knowledge workers to build better smart PDF documents by providing a comprehensive solution that supports the complete document lifecycle (create, collaborate, edit, manage, share, secure, and track usage) in an affordable and easy-to-use application. This results in improved productivity and enhanced document quality. Foxit PDF Editor is available on all operating systems, including macOS and Windows.
