pdfMachine Pro

Advanced Digital Signature.

Includes the full functionality of pdfMachine Office. In addition, pdfMachine Pro has the option to digitally sign PDF documents (electronic signature) and attach files.

With pdfMachine Pro you can create and sign your PDF documents with one "click" and protect them against future changes.

Due to its ease of use, pdfMachine Pro opens the door to electronic signatures especially to small and medium-sized companies. They can now also use cost-effective e-mail for business-critical transactions.

The functionality of the tool in combination with an advanced certificate of a trust center is based on the regulations of the German Signature Act (SigG) and the European Union Directive (SigV).

Digital certificates are issued by commercial certification authorities, trust centers or by the internal security administrator or the company's IT managers. In the latter case it is a so-called free simple certificate.

How does it work?

Step 1:
Select the printer "Broadgun pdfMachine" from your program and activate the function "Digital signature" in the options. Create your own certificate or adopt the certificate of the trust center.

Step 2:
Make your personal settings and design and position your signature if necessary. It will later be displayed in the PDF file, as shown in the example.

Step 3:
Now confirm the process, for example by entering the PIN of the certificate, and complete the printing process as usual.

After completion, you will see the signed PDF document, which can now be sent immediately and protected by your digital signature via e-mail. The recipientand can read and check its authenticity.

If you update your version protection regularly, the latest pdfMachine versions including newly developed functions are always available. You also don't need to worry about switching to new server and operating systems or upgrading your MS Office software. Our current versions are always prepared in advance for the upcoming changes from Microsoft or other software manufacturers.
Please note: Your existing license is only valid for versions of pdfMachine that you purchased before the expiration date of the version protection.

What happens when my version protection expires?
Wenn Ihr Versionsschutz abläuft, funktioniert Ihre aktuelle pdfMachine-Version selbstverständlich weiterhin. Sie sind jedoch erst wieder berechtigt, neue Versionen zu installieren, wenn der Versionsschutz besteht. Hierfür wählen Sie im Shop den BroadgunService +1 oder BroadgunService +2 in Form eines zusätzlichen Lizenzschlüssels in die Registrierung eingegeben wird. Sollten Sie trotz fehlendem Versionsschutz aktuellere Versionen installieren, so wird Ihre bestehende Office, Pro, Ultimate oder ZUGFeRD Version zu einer Demoversion.
