Instant Sync and Collaboration
PSPDFKit Instant is our prebuilt solution for synchronizing annotations across multiple concurrent users, devices, or sessions. It offers developers a self-hosted solution that handles document viewing on any platform, data management, conflict resolution, version tracking, diffing, and merging. It’s a licensable component that’s included as part of PSPDFKit Server.
PSPDFKit SDKs are deployed in some of the world’s most popular applications, such as those made by Autodesk, Disney, DocuSign, Dropbox, IBM, and Lufthansa.
Instant sync and collaboration for SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft OneDrive, and Salesforce is currently in development. To get an email when we launch this feature, or to learn more, please get in touch.
