12d Synergy

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

1) Attorneys' pages handling, where there are hundreds of existing litigations documents and we need to select some pages and create new ones.2) Filtering out sections of very long documents and create new ones only with the selected ones.3) Apply images to documents even signatures and logos.4) Office automation, especially manual forms evolving to electronic PDF forms.5) Consolidation of several document types such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel and many other non-MS Office into one single document.

  • Managing and inserting digital signatures or images of signatures is quick and easy. Secure documents can be created quickly.
  • Modifying an existing PDF is very quick and easy with PowerPDF.
  • Creating a new PDF from an existing source is extremely quick and easy. I often have to combine a directory of scanned pages into a single PDF file and I can complete the task in seconds.

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 have had to contact PowerPDF support on two occasions that I readily recall. In both instances, I worked with very high level technicians that truly understood the capabilities, features and use of their product. In both case, the resolution required several interactions with support and a lot of trial and error. The technicians worked with me every step of the way to get the bottom of the issue and determine the best way to move forward.

Alternatives Considered

12d Synergy

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

Power PDF is easier to use and less expensive than Adobe Acrobat.

Return on Investment

12d Synergy

  • 12d Synergy has solved our multiple office syncing issues, adding the ability to have staff from remote offices collaborate together on projects.
  • Email saving used to be a nightmare, however, staff finds 12d Synergy's email saving easy to use and are able to search for saved emails quickly.

  • Productivity is so high that I could not work without it. Of course, I could go to competition, but with a dent in my current productivity.
  • Power PDF includes some limited OCR version, which is a big plus, especially for not so complex OCR tasks. It saves you money by not buying a full OCR.
  • Power PDF integration with the proprietary scanner driver software makes a seamless transition as you don't need to be retrained on the scan procedure.
