Adobe Systems Incorporated introduced Adobe Acrobat Elements Server, new software that provides customers greater control over the deployment and maintenance of PDF generation across the enterprise. Using Acrobat Elements Server, IT managers can centrally deploy PDF creation capabilities across a company without the need to manage additional client software on the desktop. Through a selection of user interfaces — the Web for uploading documents, email aliases for sending attachments, or watched folders for drag-and-drop submissions — the product enables Adobe PDF conversion from a variety of common file types. Using the Web services API, Acrobat Elements Server also can be integrated into more complex document creation and assembly workflows driven by enterprise content management systems. Acrobat Elements Server for Windows 2000 (SP4), Windows 2000 Server (SP4), and Windows XP Professional (SP1) is available through Adobe and will be sold on a per-user and per-server basis. Pricing begins at US$28 per user for a 1,000 user license or at US$22,500 per server. Acrobat Elements Server will be available in English only and is expected to ship by the end of November 2003. www.adobe.com
