Papersoft in Mobile World Congress 2018

, ,

Papersoft has rocked Mobile World Congress and represented the Portuguese technology at the highest level and by the second consecutive year.

The largest mobile event in the world that took place in Barcelona between the 26th of February and the 1st of March was a great opportunity for presenting our app solution for emergent markets (with particular emphasis on Africa) that pretends to simplify the traditional paper-based customer’s onboarding process into a mobile, secure and fast way.

According to our CEO Daniel Alves: “We want to ensure that telecommunications, banking and insurance companies are able to collect their customers’ data and identity within minutes in accordance with local legislation, allowing them to significantly increase the number of sales, customers and data about their business”

Papersoft App is promoting financial inclusion by allowing customer’ s registration and identity validation (KYC) and agent network management. For the present, 2 billion people don’t have access to financial services and it’s estimated that until 2020 more than 725 million people will have access to financial services. Since last year, our mobile app is serving more than 27 thousand agents and has registered about 16 thousand clients in Mozambique.

GDPR will mark 2018 – Papersoft on cybersecurity and data protection


Nowadays, companies are dealing with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) challenges like cybersecurity, data protection (collection, processing and storage) and trying respond effectively to the new challenges.

Our CEO Daniel Alves, in an exclusive interview to the Portuguese magazine “Vida Económica” mentioned that for the 2018 it is expected “a sustained increase of these themes’ s relevance, mainly in a first phase, as a reaction to the GDPR implementation. However, we are certain that what has emerged as a compliance requirement will be recognized by the industry as an opportunity to leverage new products and services in the ecosystem based on better, more secure KYC (Know Your Customer) and a more robust Digital Identity. And that’s all due to the new data protection policy – GDPR”.

Since our foundation, we have promoted several changes at a human, procedural and technological level seeking to make Papersoft a market reference in the services providers field and value-added solutions.

ISO 32000, The PDF Specification, Updated to Version 2.0


The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently announced the publication of ISO 32000-2 (PDF 2.0), the latest version of the PDF specification.

PDF 2.0 is the culmination of nine years of work by a dedicated group of approximately 30 subject-matter experts from around the world. The document is a refinement of the venerable PDF format, originally published and made freely available by Adobe Systems since 1993.

In addition to improved and clarified text, PDF 2.0 includes many new features. Several key sections, including digital signatures, metadata and tagged PDF, have been entirely overhauled.

“PDF 2.0 represents a major advance in the PDF specification,” said Duff Johnson ISO Project co-Leader for ISO 32000 and Executive Director of the PDF Association. “Almost every clause of the document has been improved to help developers agree on the implementation of existing features, while many new features enable improved electronic document workflows using PDF. We expect PDF 2.0 to help developers worldwide find new applications for the Portable Document Format in many different areas,” he said.

Peter Wyatt, an R&D Manager at CiSRA, Canon’s Australian research and development center said: “The result of PDF 2.0 is a truly open international standard, developed entirely under ISO processes. Like previous versions of PDF, PDF 2.0 is backwards compatible with ISO 32000-1:2008 (PDF 1.7) and the earlier Adobe PDF specifications. ISO 32000-2:2017 significantly clarifies many aspects of PDF making it an invaluable technical asset for every vendor and developer working with any generation of PDF technology.”

Phil Spreier, Technical Director of the 3D PDF Consortium said, “PDF is an important and widely used format in engineering markets around the world. PDF 2.0 enhances the format’s 3D capabilities by including support for PRC (ISO 24517). The addition of the PRC format enables PDF to better store precise CAD and PLM data in a cost effective, ISO standard format. This is a great benefit to heavy industries, construction and manufacturing companies that are investing in 3D technologies.”

PDF 2.0 is an open standard. Any subject-matter expert whose country is a member of ISO’s TC 171 SC 2 can join the other experts at the table, and help determine the nature and direction of the world’s de facto electronic document format.

ISO standards development for PDF in the United States is managed by the 3D PDF Consortium. US-based subject-matter experts may join the US TAG for ISO 32000 by contacting TC 171 SC 2 secretary Betsy Fanning at

For those interested in purchasing ISO 32000-2, it is available for purchase and download from the ISO website, priced at 198 Swiss francs.
