Are corrupt, damaged, or malformed PDF files a problem in your organization? pdfHarmony identifies and repairs problem PDF files before they enter your workflow. Because the software is server-based, you can run pdfHarmony on a high volume of files to ensure that they are identified and, if possible, fixed.

pdfHarmony can detect corrupt and malformed PDF files along with PDF page drawing errors that only appear when a page is displayed within a PDF viewer like Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.  pdfHarmony can also normalize or repair documents so problems like wrong operand type, broken fonts, unsupported or damaged files error messages, and more don’t have to stop your workflow or ruin your day.
