United States Department of Veterans Affairs Standardizes on PDF Converter Professional from Nuance.

Veterans Organization to Deploy Nuance's "Better PDF for Business" Solution to 10,000 Desktops Worldwide; PDF Converter Professional Gives VA the Tools Needed to Edit, Create and Convert PDF - for One-Third the Cost of Adobe Acrobat

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN), a leading provider of speech and imaging solutions, today announced that the United States Department of Veterans Affairs has selected Nuance's PDF Converter Professional as its primary PDF solution across the agency. PDF Converter Professional will deliver powerful creation, conversion, editing and form filling capabilities to more than 10,000 employees nationwide within the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Like many organizations, the Department of Veterans Affairs has been challenged to reduce costs while increasing productivity, especially in the way that it creates and stores documents. The VA endeavored to find an affordable solution that would enable employees to quickly and easily convert, create, edit and share secure PDF documents, but found that traditional solutions required significant financial, education and maintenance investments. After evaluating several solutions, the VA chose Nuance's PDF Converter Professional because it delivered all of the most important PDF features that they required - easy-to-use PDF creation, conversion, editing, form filling and security - as well as other key features, for just one-third the cost of Adobe Acrobat.

Since its introduction, PDF Converter Professional has become the leading PDF alternative to Adobe Acrobat, with more than one million copies sold to individuals and businesses worldwide. Organizations both large and small have discovered the power and benefits within Nuance's PDF applications, including Airbus, ALDA Pharmaceuticals Corp., Bayer Industry Services, Best, Best & Krieger, LLP, Credit Suisse Information Technology, Dassault, The Euro Tunnel, French Ministry of Economy and Finance, EOF Technologies, French Social Security, The Gillette Company, Mitsubishi Hitec Paper, The National Institute of Health, Pfizer, Inc., Porsche, Siemens, Telefunken, Trend Micro, Volkswagen, United States Attorneys Office and Wells Fargo.

"The decision by the US Department of Veterans Affairs to purchase Nuance's PDF Converter Professional underscores that we are offering the right PDF solutions for business, at the right price," said John Shagoury, president, Imaging Division of Nuance. "And more importantly, Nuance is offering a 'Better PDF for Business' choice with a winning combination: financial savings as well as innovative business-centric PDF features that translate to hours of effort saved by organizations nearly every day."
