Accelerating development for faster time to market
The engineering team behind K2 products uses the Node.js SDK to invoke both Adobe PDF Tools API and Adobe PDF Embed API, adding rich documentation functionality to K2 Cloud. With PDF Tools API, customers that leverage K2 products can create a PDF from any type of source document, including text, images, HTML and Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel files. K2 Cloud can then combine any number of PDFs into a single PDF. Working together, these two operations enable the software to pull together information from any number of sources and then provide users with a single PDF document containing a full record of the results representing a statement truth.
When Cobb first worked with Adobe Document Service APIs, he was surprised how fast and easy it was to add new functionality.
“I wanted to try out the annotation API, so I took a look at some Adobe resources,” says Cobb. “I ended up writing an app in a few minutes. I couldn’t believe how easy it was.”
Cobb attributes the speed of development to clear documentation including a wide range of samples showing the APIs used in proven and tested use cases. K2 developers were able to easily adapt these use cases to address their specific scenarios, which further reduced development time.
