A perfect match for what we need

"Prior choosing Apitron, we have spent some time to evaluate several popular software packages available in the market. Unfortunately, none of them met our specific requirements. Either their functions were very limited or constantly had memory leaks. Other products can rasterize any PDF, but it requires a lot of API calls and it is very hard to use. Finally, we found that Apitron.PDF.Rasterizer is a perfect match for what we need."

Resul Kurt, Türkiye İş Bankası, Turkey.
