With the release of the first in a new line of free products, Cogniview, a software company known for producing PDF to Excel converter programs, is making a bold move. It is offering to pay beta testers for feedback. The initial launch in Cogniview’s free line is called Excel to PDF Converter. It boasts a special feature no other products in its category offer: link preservation.
Yoav Ezer, CEO of Cogniview explains, "We want to get the public involved in this project and create a community around it. To kick things off, we are giving an incentive to people who use and test our new Excel to PDF Converter. We’ll give a total of 10 Amazon.com gift cards to the 10 most helpful testers. Our goal is to elevate our reputation as a premier software company to that of a company that gives back."
While there are other free Excel to PDF products on the market, none have the advanced ability of Cogniview’s Excel to PDF Converter to preserve hyperlinks during conversion. Most deliver links that are underlined, but not clickable. Excel to PDF Converter, however, retains internal and external hyperlinks from one format to the next.
Working in reverse of their current products which convert PDF to Excel files, Excel to PDF Converter transforms any printable or electronic content to an Adobe PDF file. In addition, the software can optionally embed a Creative Commons license into the PDF.
Want to take advantage of the bribe and test this latest program? It is simple. Testers should click to the download page for Excel to PDF Converter. Use the product and make notes about experiences, then visit Cogniview’s blog, Codswallop, to leave feedback. The 10 most helpful testers will be awarded a $15 Amazon.com gift card.
