Meredith Connell

Meredith Connell is New Zealand’s largest litigation firm, providing clients with advice and representation across more than 23 practice areas. Founded in 1922 and operating in Auckland and Wellington, the firm has experts adept at determining the best way to apply the law to any specific situation. The massive amounts of electronic litigation in PDF format handled across several different departments was impacting the firm’s productivity. Each legal expert needed the same PDF software to complete functions like hyperlinking and combining files, however only a few people had Adobe Acrobat licenses to do such things. That meant those few would catch all the work from other staff members needing their help, resulting in work stalling while court deadlines approached. Meredith Connell needed a better PDF solution to stay ahead of the law. It came in the form of Foxit PhantomPDF.

City of Evansville and Vanderburgh County

Within its boundaries the City of Evansville contains nearly 121,000 of the more than 182,000 citizens that make Vanderburgh County, Indiana home, making the area the third largest district in Indiana. Keeping Evansville’s lifeblood flowing falls squarely on the government’s staff of 1,600. That’s why the city produces forms that utilize intelligent functionality brought about by advanced PDF features. The challenge? Only a very limited number of staff members had access to software licenses that enabled them to create PDF forms. Many staff members didn’t even know how to do so. Yet there was a growing push to continue to provide intelligence to the way the district works with its citizens and businesses.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC)

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) needed to find all relevant documents utilizing a search query based on text inside and across all files. These documents included complex PDF files - electronic, image, and hybrid documents. Generic OCR technology required the PDFs to be rendered to images and then re-OCR’d, losing critical information such as bookmarks, tables of contents and hyperlinks. The state government agency needed to ensure that all text within a document was indexed as well as preserve key PDF attributes in order to maintain the integrity of their vital documents.

Their documents existed in many formats, which forced the agency to support multiple viewers in order to access all the different file types.

Hargraves McConnell & Costigan

Hargraves McConnell & Costigan manages a high volume of paper-based documents on a daily basis. Their scanned documents are often large, preventing effective access and transmission. Additionally the documents are not searchable, necessitating long and costly processing. Locating text within multi-page image files was a time consuming and inefficient task. Although the firm had previously implemented their own OCR engine to remedy the issue, they found that the engine would crash when processing larger files. It took 8 hours to process a batch of files and required employees to wait all day for the job to finish. This prompted the firm to look for an OCR solution that could quickly and reliably handle large volumes of documents.

State of Hawaii Department of Taxation

Which is why the staff­ were interested in anything they could do to speed up processing time and cut down on errors caused by manual data entry or scanning. They turned to Ultraforms® technology by Foxit to add the automatic data-capturing and accuracy of 2D barcodes to their highest volume tax forms.
