    Programming interface (API) to Foxit PDF Compressor

    Foxit PDF Compressor Enterprise has a programming interface (API)
    to let developers integrate it even more tightly into existing systems.

    Included in every license are a C-DLL interface and a .NET API which
    ECM developers, workflow suppliers, systems houses and users can use to
    synchronously address the Foxit PDF Compressor service and
    receive ongoing feedback on the state of processing.

    The interface can control all functions and settings, which means even
    born digital documents and emails can be converted to PDF/A.
    And of course, MRC compression, OCR reading and PDF/A creation are all
    available for scanned documents, including all options for barcodes and more.

    Do you use cloud-based services?
    The PDF Compressor’s new API makes it a simple step to create
    your own PDF and PDF/A web service.

    Foxit PDF Compressor can now, via the API,
    be used directly from SharePoint.
