FREMONT, Calif. Foxit Software, a leading software provider of fast, affordable, and secure PDF solutions, today announced that Mother Lode Holding Company (MLHC) has selected Foxit’s PhantomPDF as its PDF Software solution to help in its transition to becoming a paperless organization. MLHC provides IT and general support services to a family of title insurance companies that are industry leaders in their markets. Founded in 1973 as Placer Title Company in Placer County, CA, they expanded throughout the state of California and then throughout the country under the MLHC umbrella. This family of companies provides title insurance, escrow services, and transaction support services to the nation's real estate industry.

Becoming paperless has become an important initiative as many companies reduce the document deluge they are buried under. For the title insurance industry, the transition is even more imperative as efficiency, accuracy, and compliance are incredibly important in overall success. MLHC decided to go paperless and set about converting their national divisions, however, their current PDF software wasn’t up to the task.

“When we moved the national divisions to a new software system for the title and escrow production process, we realized that our PDF software wasn’t going to be able to support the transition,” said Ben White, IT Division Manager at MLCH. “After we looked at various solutions it became clear that Foxit’s PhantomPDF was the far superior solution when it came to price and functionality. ”

Foxit’s PhantomPDF helped MLHC to improve and simplify workflow, save money, reduce costs and improve customer service by embracing paperless processing. The solution was able to efficiently and quickly help the company in all the areas of a paperless transition, including PDF markup, reorganizing pages, image editing, and OCR text conversion.

“Without Foxit, we wouldn't have been able to go paperless,” said White. “It’s about efficiency, the ability to communicate effectively in an electronic system and accuracy. Foxit has been great for us.”

“We are very excited to be working with MLHC as the company takes the incredibly important step of transitioning to a paperless organization,” said Frank Kettenstock, Chief Marketing Officer. “When companies compare our solutions, costs, and commitment to service and innovation, they quickly realize that Foxit offers unsurpassed technology and value.”

Beyond helping the transition to go paperless, PhantomPDF provides unmatched benefits and features to users, including:

  • The ability to edit PDF text like a word processor
  • Link, join, or split text blocks to connect text or set text to flow throughout the entire document, for more powerful PDF editing.
  • Edit PDF images, objects, and object shading. Change text to shape. Change page layout properties, add shading to objects, convert text to path, merge/split text, and edit .ai files.
  • Compress PDF images; clear out the data redundancy of PDF objects, user data, and unembedded fonts. Reduce file sizes for scanned and digitally born documents.
  • Edit PDF text by changing font type, style, size, color, and effect. Align text left, center, or right, while choosing from multiple line spacing options.
  • Customize the way your PDF looks by adding or modifying stamps, watermarks, headers, footers, and backgrounds to generate professional looking PDFs.
  • Embed images and videos in your PDF and make it more interactive.
