Integrated signatures and approval processing

Do you manage your ETMFs in Content Server? Need a replacement for Adlib Express? Require robust format rendering support (something more than Word to PDF)? Think there might be a better alternative to Blazon? Been wondering why you're having so many problems with PDF rending like Excel documents being rendered to 100s of pages? Required to render 10K documents per month requested by individual users and /or need to render 200K documents per month from an automatic “publish” workflow (that's 1 document every 5 seconds)? Beginning to think that digital signatures should replace electronic signatures? Want to reduce your costs? PTfD's architecture scales both vertically (e.g. multi-threaded, 64-bit, so adding disk, memory & storage works wonders) and horizontally (e.g. additional servers to work queued jobs) making it straightforward to scale your system to support rendering many hundreds of thousands of documents every month.
