About Us

Leave work early…

Back in 2000, a simple idea was formed that launched the creation of our signature product, PDF2XL. CogniView was born with a simple philosophy – to offer a priceless resource that won’t compromise the quality of your professional work.

Since then, CogniView and PDF2XL have both taken on some major changes. New ownership resulted in transitioning the company from its original headquarters in Israel to becoming a US-based business under the PDF2XL brand. Incredible advancements under the watchful eye of a hands-on CEO and determined development team have turned PDF2XL into the unparalleled data conversion tool our customers know and love.

Our devoted crew continues to provide superior service and will go above and beyond to make sure you get to leave work early.
