Convert statements, invoices and other documents into web-ready PDFs

About RICOH Web Enablement Solutions Suite PDF converter software

Some of your customers may be requesting e-delivery of statements, invoices and other documents. With this suite of PDF conversion tools, you can give them the experience they want and manage information far more easily. This solution allows you to transform documents created in multiple datastreams into web-ready PDFs that your customers can access, view and download, while you save paper and postage. The software also integrates with leading content management systems so you can archive the PDFs for future reference.


  • Accommodate customer preference for receiving information electronically while you reduce paper and postage costs.
  • Transform multiple datastreams, including AFP into PDF, with fidelity and security controls.
  • Enable end-customers and customer service representatives to view the same document to improve customer service results.

Deliver better customer experience

Help your customer service reps do their jobs better and more efficiently. The Web Enablement Solutions Suite tools include built-in search and navigation functions that make it easy for service reps to find and view the same information in the same format a customer is viewing online. When both parties are on the same page, questions or concerns can be resolved quickly, shortening resolution time and customer wait time.

Simulate the look of printed documents

Files that come from sources like mainframes and document composition tools are created using different datastreams. Our PDF conversion software “reads” the datastreams accurately so text and images appear in the right places. Documents on the web look just like they would if they were printed, providing consistency regardless of delivery channel.

Transform AFP into PDF and other datastreams confidently

No matter how complex the content of your documents, the suite provides the right tools for the job. RICOH AFP2PDF Plus converts Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP™) documents, including files that contain double byte character sets, into PDFs. RICOH AFP Merge combines small print runs into one so you can print efficiently. Using RICOH AFP Visual Environment, you can change index values, hide content, create barcodes and more, without changing source applications. Other tools include:

Use shortcuts to create web-ready PDFs faster

Speed up the PDF conversion process by using the configuration files we created. They allow you to substitute pre-generated graphics and images – such as logos – that appear regularly in your documents. And, you can add images to emulate preprinted forms and/or color to replace AFP shaded areas.

Keep private information private

Statements, invoices and other documents that contain sensitive information need extra protection. When you convert documents into web-ready PDFs using our conversion software, the included PDF file security lets you define owners to restrict modification, copying and printing. To control document access, define end-user passwords. Add a digital signature for another layer of security.
