12d Synergy

12d Synergy and its ability to handle all file types really suited the engineering industry.

Kofax Power PDF

I am so happy I found Kofax Power PDF. It actually came with my all-in-one printer and I absolutely loved it, [so] when I purchased my next all-in-one, I continued to use this software. I love the ease of combining documents. This is so much easier to use and I have not run into any problems. I do not ever plan to go back to the competitor's software. This has allowed us to save money on paper as well as time and has allowed the company to be more productive.

  • Converting a word or other document prior to submitting to the public. Reduces file size and reduces chances of corruption of the master document.
  • A host of features like edit options; highlight options; cropping; converting in both directions
  • Combining multiple PDF's into one document

Cons

12d Synergy

  • 12d Synergy could provide additional analytical reporting on user behavior and usage out of the box.
  • Improved speeds when referencing shared files from other 12d model projects.

Kofax Power PDF

  • Convert menu and its help are not easy to understand. Trial and error is the workaround.
  • Crop, a pretty simple feature, has a non-intuitive way to perform the crop action. It is not easy to figure out when a crop size applies or not to other pages.
  • Typewriter mode looks like the commentary feature or Text editing. I never used as I could not understand the benefits. Maybe a YouTube video would help.
  • Fill out electronically an existing hardcopy form. It is unclear whether the product does it.

Most tasks are intuitive, but the ones, I have cited already. To get a 10, the Help file should be rewritten. It is not thorough, confused, and sometimes inconsistent.Menus are well structured, although the Page Rotated section of the ribbon looks a bit out of place.Recent files are well located front and center.

I haven't used it that much. Some cases took a while to resolve because they weren't escalated in a timely manner. This happens with almost every technology company, so...Kofax/Nuance is no worse than many good companies on this one. But, you asked, so there it is.

Alternatives Considered

12d Synergy

Hands down prefer 12d Synergy. Bentley ProjectWise is overly complex, expensive and has a very cluttered interface.

Kofax Power PDF is about 1/7 the cost of these programs and offers most if not all of the same features, so why go anywhere else. we used to use Adobe but quickly realized I could buy a copy of Power PDF for everyone in the whole company for the cost of one copy of Adobe.
