ABBYY FineReader

[ABBYY FineReader is well suited] to edit advanced documents that contain text, images, tables, columns among others, I used it when I have a large text file and they ask me to go in editable file type like docx, Another common use is when in documents there is personal or sensitive information that should not be public knowledge and you want to cure or erase this information without prejudice to the understanding of the background of the document.

I use GlobalSearch very basically. I know that the capability for more exists. But I am satisfied with what I get out of it. My organization is very paper driven. Our personnel records are still paper. We still use paper time cards. I feel like I am leaps and bounds over a very-slow-to-grow (administratively) organization

GlobalSearch

  • With little training, I'm able to offer all support for this product as an internal admin.
  • Users require very little training to understand the approval process.
  • Moving to electronic document management takes so much less paper, less confusion, and no more walking documents around the building.
  • Great support is always available when needed.

Cons

ABBYY FineReader

  • A versioning system of the work done or the editions that have been saved in the files, or a tracking of changes between one version and another would be fabulous
  • An improvement that would be asked would be as previews or suggestions of the type of file that could be beneficial to use in an edition
  • The redesign of the panels is that of the analyzed document, the edition and the changes in my opinion need a resizing to have a better view of the work

GlobalSearch

  • The web based interface needs some work. The search results have a preview view of the document. This could be helpful in some situations, but should be an option that can be chosen. Data XChange and Image XChange need to also work in the web interface for it to be viable for many organizations.
  • A queue showing users all of their documents waiting for them to work on would also be extremely useful.

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

GlobalSearch

I did not comparison shop. It was offered by a very trustworthy local business that we were currently doing business with. I was presented with the software, and bought it without hesitation. No regrets.
