PDF Technology in the Banking Industry

Organizations in the banking and financial services industries have adopted many new technologies to improve their service offering. PDF Software Development Kits (SDKs) can help your applications outperform competitors and deliver better document experiences to both internal and external end users.

Banking and the Financial Services Industry

The banking industry has always been fast to catch up with technologies. Clients can now download banking apps or go online to pay bills, open a current account or apply for a mortgage. More and more bank branches are using devices like ATMs and tablets to serve clients in person, saving money long-term. But where does PDF technology factor into these everyday tasks? Whether you are a retail bank, mortgage bank, commercial banking or otherwise, you can incorporate PDF technology into your workflows. Send your clients PDF statements, or let them fill out PDF application forms that connect to your internal systems and databases. How about allowing clients to digitally sign contracts, so they do not need to visit branches to do business? PDF technology is an integral part of banking from creating statements, to incorporating document management into banking applications. Foxit Software provides PDF Software Development Kits (SDKs) that can allow your business to integrate powerful technology into your business systems effortlessly.

Secure Client Data

Security of personal data is a top priority for banks no matter who their clients are. It can be hard to track access to documentation without any technology. Foxit Software has worked with leading financial providers in the past, leading to our in-depth knowledge of where security pain points lie and how to control rights management around these.


Banks have many forms from new account setup, mortgage applications, to update information forms. Bringing these forms online available in a browser means that a form can be completed and submitted within a controlled environment. Foxit Software allows you to host forms through browsers so you can choose whether a client can download, print or fill them out.


Even local banks can be global banks holding accounts with clients across the world due to new technologies and the internet. Clients no longer need to visit a branch to sign legally binding contracts with banks for transactions to go ahead. Foxit Software provides built-in digital signature features in our SDKs to make it easy to incorporate electronic signatures into your workflow processes.

Multi-device Capabilities

Whether accessing banking information on the go or using a machine to lodge money into an account, clients need multiple devices to carry out their banking needs. Moving forms and other types of documentation online requires consistent formatting. Foxit Software has helped leading banks across the globe incorporate device responsiveness into their applications through our cutting-edge libraries and UI Extension.

Foxit’s Banking and Financial Services Clients:

Our Technology Strengths: Document Security

Security of documentation and personal information can never be underestimated. Banks hold more personal information about a client than most other industries and most take an active role in securing this data. Our security features incorporate Microsoft’s Right Management System along with password protection and encryption to ensure that your sensitive information is safe from security breaches.

Digital Signatures

Digital Signatures are a great way of doing business across the world without meeting a client face-to-face. With the advent of EIDAS and other worldwide regulations, digital signatures in PDF documents are deemed as legally binding as paper signatures.

PDF Forms

PDF Forms have amazing capabilities depending on the needs of your company and clients. They can be used across many different devices while still rendering correctly and can be hosted on a browser where you can control what people see and do in them.

Device Responsiveness

Whether you are developing a banking application on Android, iOS, UWP, Windows or Unix, we’ve got you covered. Our technology is scalable and responsive to ensure that your application never fails a client and can be used anywhere.


Redaction allows a company to suppress parts of a document (including personally identifiable information) for legal or security purposes. Using PDF technology, you can remove information from the front and the backend of the document forever, safely protecting client data.
