Appligent and callas Form Strategic Sales Alliance

PDF electronic document management firms Appligent Document Solutions and callas software have formed a strategic alliance to jointly market each other’s systems to firms.

Appligent specializes in PDF-specific server management applications for forms, stamping, appending, encryption and digital signatures, and callas software develops PDF technology for publishing, print production, document exchange and document archiving.

Appligent president Virginia Gavin says, “Callas’ deep experience with quality assurance for PDF files in the print industry positioned them as the leading PDF/A solutions provider, while our focus has always been business document management. This alliance will allow us to present callas’s expertise alongside our own, a combination that we believe will be extremely powerful.”

Callas’ main sales channels are in Europe and Appligent’s are mainly in North America, so the cross-marketing alliance is neatly suited to both firms.

The two companies will pursue a number of activities, including a joint effort designed to expand awareness and adoption of ISO 19005, the PDF/A conformance standard for archiving PDF documents. More details on the activities of the pair will be announced in the new year, they said.
