Describe the company
How are you different?
Why will the company/product do well?
We have the best conversion technology available out there. We can convert documents to more than 20 popular file formats with great accuracy and our OCR engine which is used for converting scanned documents is one of the best in industry. We are constantly trying to please our customer needs and that is one of the reasons why we’ve created our mobile apps. Basically, every company can do well if it carefully listens to its customers’ needs.
Where are you based?
The whole company is based in Canada, but we like to think that a digital world is our natural habitat.

When was the company launched?
The company was founded in 2009 and since then grew rapidly. In 2014 we started developing mobile apps and now we have more than 30 converter apps.
What have been your biggest wins to date?
Well, the biggest win for us was that we recently served our 3 millionth customer and that most of our customers are the returning ones. In general, we had great success with our mobile apps, especially PDF to Word Converter app for iOS which was featured on popular technology websites and magazines.
What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?
Since we have a wide range of services, we are attracting all kind of people from students, teachers, stay-at-home moms, business people all the way to retired people. Basically, all people who are converting a lot of documents on a regular basis are our targeted market segment. We are not trying to focus on a specific niche, but if I would have to say, our focus will be on business people (accountants, lawyers, etc..) and educational sector.
What tips would you give to others looking to build their business?
Be patient and 200% focused on what you are doing and success will come. The trick is to really love what you are doing and to live and breathe your business. If you don’t set your goals right you will never do anything, and the hardest thing is starting, the rest is easy.
Tell us about your team?
Cometdocs team consists of three developers who are constantly improving existing products and coming up with new solutions to enhance work productivity. Likewise, there are four marketers who are in charge of spreading the word and developing creative marketing campaigns. A perfect mix of youth, expertise, and will to make a difference in this tech world. Therefore, you should keep an eye on this company because many innovations are yet to come.
What are your long-term plans for your product/company?
To constantly improve our existing mobile application and services with new and unique features. At the moment we are developing some new apps that have nothing to do with our conversion technology and are based on the new emerging technology trends.
What are your favourite tech gadgets?
-Well, I am an Apple fan so I’m vastly invested in apple ecosystem. I have almost all of their products, but my favourite one is my iPad Pro which became my workstation since it is very probable and powerful. I also love aerial photography so my I lobe using my DJI Phantom for taking great aerial shots.
What tech gadgets do you wish you could use to help you?
I hope someday I will have that impressive AI assistant who will do most of my work instead of me. In that case, I would be able to spend most of my time with my kids and family. Until that day comes I would love to have a Tesla car and use their autopilot feature in order to make my commute to work less stressful.
