iText Creates Revenue Sharing Opportunities for Development Community
Ghent, Belgium, April 25, 2017 – Developers now are able to partner with leading PDF library company, iText Software, to market add-ons to iText 7.
The iText 7 Platform allows software developers to create add-ons, while iText provides international sales and marketing support. With this “outside-in” way of innovation, iText expands the functionality of its core iText 7 engine to respond to specific customer requirements. This relationship also provides the development community with revenue sharing opportunities and access to the commercial market.
“We’ve received countless requests for iText to build add-ons, but working alone we’re unable to keep up with the market demand,” said Raf Hens, iText director of product management. “Through this partner program, we engage the developer community from a strategic business level. Now, developers can build applications to meet the market’s needs, and we can provide the sales and marketing functions necessary to broadly distribute their iText 7 add-on.”
Dual Lab developed the first iText 7 Platform add-on, pdf2Data. This add-on enables users to programmatically extract data from PDFs.
“We are glad to partner with iText for distributing pdf2Data across the globe,” said Boris Doubrov, CEO and co-founder of Dual Lab. “This allows us to focus on what we do best – developing innovative software, while iText provides a recognized technology and has great experience in international marketing and sales. It’s a win-win.”
