The complete knowledge base about ARender - How to install it and how to configure it as needed


What is included in the price


By default, the price includes a complete use of ARender features. You can integrate ARender in your platform to open:

  • 300+ document formats
  • A document at a time
  • Multiple documents in a folder like view
  • Compare two documents opened in ARender
  • Compose new documents from the currently opened documents

All those features are standard in the product, and become de facto standard in ARender SaaS.

For composing new documents, you’ll have to integrate a listener to a Javascript front end callback so that you can receive the document you built using ARender SaaS.

Annotations storage

This is the first (non paid) option of ARender SaaS. If you do not wish us to store data on our platform, you can decide to block annotations creation for your end users.

If you wish to use the feature, let the default behavior run, and your users will be able to create annotations when the write permission has been given for them on the document.

Annotations are stored following the XFDF norm and serialized as JSON fragments (faster than the old XFDF storage). You can still retrieve them as XML XFDF or binary FDF Adobe standard files using ARender endpoints. The JSON fragments will remain an internal data storage format.

What options can I purchase

ARender SaaS comes with all its standard features, the paid options correspond to the one we can’t offer as standard.

  1. Options that contain paid (licensed) modules

    • An example of such licensed module would be an AutoCAD to PDF converter, which often require per server licenses to operate.
    • We possess great partners in the field, so we handle the licenses system and offer you the approach as a service
  2. Options that bring a different business value to the product

    • PDF/A document rendering from regular PDF documents is a great and powerful tool for archiving as the trend is to use this format as a replacement for all archives
    • Our home made PDF/A module uses advanced techniques to produce both a great quality of rendering without loss, without sacrificing the output file size.
