PDF24 Creator for companies

In the last time inquiries from companies are increasing, whether the PDF24 Creator can be used in companies and whether the PDF24 Creator is also free of charge here.

Using PDF24 Creator in companies is no problem. Many companies use the PDF24 Creator and distribute the application to the PCs in the company network, thus providing their employees with software that allows them to create and edit PDFs quickly and easily. The use under Citrix is also no problem. The PDF24 Creator is well known and many users can work with the software.

The PDF24 Creator is free of charge, also for companies. Licensing models for the software do not yet exist. You do not need to purchase a license from us. Anyone can use the software free of charge.

We would be pleased to receive feedback if your company also uses PDF24 Creator. Feedback about different aspects is important and helps us to find problems, optimize processes or create new features. For example, you can send your feedback directly to forum@pdf24.org by e-mail.

I hope you will enjoy PDF24 Creator.

Alternative to FreePDF

Are you looking for an alternative to FreePDF?

In the last few weeks we have received some requests from companies looking for an alternative, because the FreePDF project will probably not be continued. The question was mostly whether PDF24 is a complete replacement for FreePDF.

In my opinion, the answer is clearly YES. The PDF24 Creator is in no way inferior to FreePDF. On the contrary, PDF24 Creator offers many more features and functions that are not included in FreePDF. So you can do nothing wrong with the PDF24 Creator.

The PDF24 Creator is free of charge, both for private individuals and companies. Companies can roll out the software onto their computers. The PDF24 Creator can also be used under Citrix. An MSI is available to make the distribution work better. Despite freeware, the PDF24 Creator is free of viruses, spyware and other malware, which is rarely found today. Isn't it great?

I hope that with this contribution I have been able to help people who are also looking for an alternative. I hope you enjoy PDF24 Creator.
