Here's what you get with Lumin PDF.


Edit, view, share and collaborate with Lumin, a comprehensive solution for document editing, cloud collaboration, and project management - all from one intuitive, user-friendly interface.

Regardless of whether you’re a remote-first team or enjoy sharing an office, being able to exchange information seamlessly is the key to being a productive organization. This is why Lumin has a toolkit bursting with features to make editing and sharing your documents easier than ever.

Why cloud collaboration is the future of work

We’re long past the era of printing documents, filling them out, scanning them, and then emailing them back to colleagues; being able to collaborate on projects across multiple devices in real-time is the way forward in an increasingly cloud-based world.

It’s notable that while 44% of global companies don’t allow remote work, 16% of them are choosing to hire 100% remote teams. There are a variety of reasons for this; it helps reduce running costs, while some businesses may need people based across multiple time zones. But it’s the advances in cloud-based document management that have made remote collaboration a reality for organizations both large and small.

Lumin is one such toolkit that has enabled businesses, schools, and non-profits alike to enhance communication between teams and make project management a breeze. 

Here’s how we do it.

What exactly is Lumin?

Lumin is a comprehensive solution for PDF editing, cloud collaboration, and project management - all from one intuitive, user-friendly interface. 

With Lumin, you never have to worry about documents going astray or pinging emails back and forth; our all-in-one system makes it easy to edit, review, and manage your resources.

Why is PDF editing such a crucial tool?

PDF stands for ‘Portable Document Format’ and refers to an open-source file that’s independent of any particular operating system or hardware. PDFs allow both text and images to be viewed across desktop and mobile and via web browsers. They’re a safe and trusted way of communicating information because they can be secured by passwords to protect sensitive data and carry a complete record of changes. 

However, PDFs do have some downsides, namely that they come in a read-only format. This means there is no way to edit a PDF directly. While adding text to a PDF using text boxes is possible, this is a fiddly and time-consuming process. Many of us have experienced the frustration of trying to convert PDFs into Word files and back again, only for this to corrupt the formatting.

This is why a PDF editing solution such as Lumin is such an important tool for seamless collaboration. But Lumin offers far more than just editing capabilities:

  • Work together on documents in real-time
  • Create fillable and multi-media PDFs for engaging classwork
  • Access projects on the go, wherever you are

Let’s dive into these abilities in a bit more depth.
