iText Earns Silver in Best in Biz International Awards


iText, the premier open source PDF library designed for developers, earned Silver in the Best in Biz Awards International Awards for small or medium business product of the year.

Since 2000, iText has enabled IT developers, ranging from hobbyists to CIOs of Fortune 500 companies, to quickly create, adapt, inspect and maintain compliant documents in PDF. This is the first year iText has been recognized by the Best in Biz Awards. The company was selected among hundreds based in more than 30 countries.

“iText’s PDF technology is designed to help developers and their companies improve efficiencies and compliance,” said Bruno Lowagie, CEO and founder of the company. “

“Awards, like this, encourage us to continue to grow globally, with an eye towards helping more small and medium sized businesses around the world.”

Best in Biz Awards 2015 International honors were presented in a range of categories, including fastest-growing company of the year, most innovative company of the year, enterprise product of the year and best new product of the year.

Journalists and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, serve as judges each year. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards is able to leverage the experience and expertise of an influential group of global opinion makers to determine award winners.

“As a second year judge, I am still amazed by the quality of the entries,” said Jaime Rodríguez-Guerra, Computer Hoy (Spain). “The innovation observed in these awards is not a coincidence, but an intrinsic property of the companies. The new IT developments are helping to reduce the existing gap between the traditional company and the modern one.”

iText’s product innovation has garnered several industry recognitions. Last year, iText Group was recognized by Deloitte as one of the fastest growing technology companies (28th place in the EMEA region) and the company won the BelCham’s “Most Promising Company of the Year 2014” Award in New York. Earlier this year, the company won a Hermes Creative Award with the design of its new logo.
