Helper Systems launches kOS 1.0 Preview

Helper, Utah -- February 14, 2023. Startup Helper Systems has launched a preview of its first app that makes it easier and a lot more fun to discover and use information in PDFs. kOS (pronounced "chaos") turns any PDFs that reside on users' desktops or cloud drives into powerful databases that are easy to navigate. kOS also includes tools that promote discovery of new concepts and ideas including a Word Cloud and Occurrences. The preview is freely available to everyone via TestFlight, Apple's development management system.

kOS 1.0 is an essential tool for anyone who works with PDFs. Everyone from students, professors and knowledge workers who need to do research more efficiently to legal, government and corporate employees who need a better way to discover and manage contracts, invoices, patents, and any other documents in PDF format can benefit from kOS.

The kOS 1.0 preview runs on a user's macOS laptop or desktop, protecting privacy and ensuring they never lose access to data that is important to them.

"kOS 1.0 is amazing! Where has this been all my life? I'm dumbstruck," said Alastair Williams, Professor of History, Humanities & Social Sciences at Clarkson University. "The ability to utilize kOS across multiple PDFs at once will boost research productivity hugely in terms of saving time and easily finding and exploring information…kOS is exactly what my field needs at this point in digital life."

"PDF documents have more utility than most people experience. We are excited to launch software that introduces these features to make information easier to discover and, more importantly, work with file sets as opposed to individual documents," said Christopher Warnock, Helper System's CEO and Founder. "We are extremely thankful to our alpha testers and everyone who has contributed to the launch of our first preview of kOS."
