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.

  • With Kofax PaperPort, documents can be merged, pages can be extracted from multiple documents and combined to make a new PDF document. It is an important feature as one needs to do it very often and more ubiquitous pdf readers like Adobe Acrobat Reader DC lacks functionalities like these.
  • Kofax PaperPort scans the documents and using it's OCR, converts these scans to searchable PDF documents so that these documents can be searched based on the text content in them.
  • Functionality to convert other formats to PDF and PDF to other formats. This is important as many times , we need to upload certain documents only in a specific format and conversion is required to and from PDF format.

  • It should have a back button, so if you go from one folder to the next, it would be simple to get back to the first folder.
  • When you combine two PDFs, it should retain the title of the one that's on top.
  • The send to bar should be easier to change.

PaperPort has a few quirks, but it is the only program of its kind that actually does what it claims to do. The power of it is so much more than they claim especially when it comes to trying to achieve a truly paperless office. With PDF editing built-in, it also saves considerable investment in other PDF editing programs.

Alternatives Considered

ABBYY

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

I was ecstatic to see someone moving PaperPort away from Nuance (Those in my circle of friends refer to them as Nuisance). The lack of customer involvement by Nuance made finding answers to things that sometimes irritate a user to being downright frustrating. Maybe the purchase of Nuance by Microsoft will allow the company to focus more on the customer.
