ABBYY FineReader

It works exceptionally well for digitizing paper and scanned documents for storage and simple retrieval mainly thanks to OCR technology, which greatly simplifies the process. If there is a need for protection and/or signing scanned documents than ABBYY FineReader has all the necessary features implemented. It may not be the best choice for individuals, where advanced functionalities are not really needed.

Adobe document has the feature of e-sign which is by far the best feature.It provides alerts in case the file is corrupted or malicious and warns user not to open such documentsThere are inbuit options to convert pdf to excel ,word or PowerPoint which prevents users from relying on external tools for document conversion.

  • For our purpose, being able to quickly set up optimization settings is really important to us. It allows us to easily open a pdf, select the proper optimization setting, and process the pdf. All in a few simple steps. This allows us to do our job more effectively.
  • Acrobat also allows us to preflight a pdf when necessary. If we're having a problem with a pdf, being able to use numerous preflight options to diagnose a problem is extremely helpful to us. It allows us to find the issue and relay this information to the client to hopefully prevent a future issue.
  • We try to never update a client's pdf, but if for some reason we need to make a small text change, having the ability and freedom to do so in Acrobat can be a huge timesaver. Acrobat makes editorial changes a breeze.
  • If we're doing anything design-related internally, Acrobat allows for easy commenting on PDFs. This is a nice feature as it allows you to quickly point out necessary changes for the designer.

  • Some icons in the toolbar could be improved so they are more immmediately recognisable. Saves time having to hover over them to see what they actually do.
  • Export function to other packages may be helpful for those not in the Microsoft ecosystem (e.g. Google docs).

I use this program almost every day. Most of the documents we work with are already PDFs so it would be problematic if I didn't have this program anymore. I would renew it because it has made working with documents so much more efficient than when we used to rely on using Microsoft Word, printing, and scanning!

Every time I think of something I need to accomplish, whether it be creating a form that has fillable boxes, or converting one type of file to another, Adobe Acrobat can perform that function, and with a minimum of research necessary on deciphering how to accomplish the task. Just having features but being too hard to use can sink a program, and luckily this program is easy but capable.

Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC performs at an acceptable rate. The software takes some time to load, but nothing that is unreasonable when launching a document. The program responds at a reasonable speed and performs well when operating tasks. It takes time for it to evaluate a document when you request to edit the document, but that is understandable considering it is identifying words and such in the document.

I haven't had to use the customer support very often, it at all. Why? Because the software has a well though through user interface and has lots of horsepower when it needs to deal with gigantic documents. I don't think I've ever seen it crash.

Works well with JamF and SmartDeploy. These are our Enterprise imaging solutions for Mac's and PC's. The Enterprise installer is required when pushing out this app.

Alternatives Considered

ABBYY FineReader

Although both have functionalities that they share, in ABBYY FineReader they are better implemented, they have a better performance, in addition to being a more intuitive and simple user that makes their learning curve relatively simple, it is as if the options I need are always available. the hand and not within complicated menus or overloaded interfaces

Adobe DC was a free to install version, lite software that got our team everything we needed without needing to go and spend gobs of money on software licenses for 20-30 people. It is helpful, searchable (mostly) and gets the team everything the need to be able to read and open PDF files.

  • Adobe Acrobat DC has greatly reduced our number of new accessibility issues.
  • Adobe Acrobat DC is easy enough for most users that request for ADA compliant PDFs no longer come through the web office, so our workflow is much more streamlined.
  • Adobe Acrobat DC has allowed us to generate fillable forms more easily, resulting in less time trying to interpret poor penmanship.
