The way we do business has significantly changed over the past decades. Something that was unimaginable ten or fifteen years ago now is a reality. Take mobile phones for example. Who would have guessed back then that these devices would become an integral part of our work life. From business calls to checking emails every minute or so, we do pretty much everything on smartphones these days.
Thanks to this and many other technological advancements our work behavior and habits have evolved. Nowadays, business professionals need to do everything in order to ensure that they stay ahead of the curve. This means that they need to get things done on the go, being productive in the office is not enough anymore.
Yet, most people have trouble doing any work if they’re not at their office computer. Why? Probably because they lack the proper tools necessary to get things done. For example, imagine getting an email notification from your colleague with an important PDF contract while you’re commuting to work or on a lunch break. You go over it and notice a mistake that needs to be taken care of before sending it over to the client. But how?
Here’s where things get tricky. You’re nowhere near your computer–how can you edit a PDF in such situations? Well, if you’re using an iPhone (who isn’t, right?) the solution is to use a PDF conversion mobile app such as Able2Extract.
Able2Extract PDF Converter is an easy to use PDF conversion app for iOS smartphones & tablets that can create and convert PDF files to formats that can be easily edited like MS Word for instance.
If the name Able2Extract sounds familiar, it is because the app is a smartphone version of the renowned desktop PDF solution called Able2Extract Professional developed by a Canadian company called Investintech.
Although the app is not as feature-rich as its desktop counterpart it certainly has some great features to offer. Here are some of them:
- Easy to use
- Fast and accurate conversion
- Ability to create PDF files from other file formats
- Ability to convert PDF files to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Images & AutoCAD
- Ability to convert scanned PDFs thanks to the built-in OCR engine
- Ability to import and convert PDF files from your mobile device, email or other online storages (Dropbox, OneDrive…)
