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.

Nitro Productivity Suite

Nitro is well suited for the common tasks we use like include viewing and editing. The redaction tool is very useful when sharing documents with sensitive information. The downfall is we still must use Adobe Acrobat on occasion. Some PDFs will not open, view, or print properly in Nitro.

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • Ability to combine files SEAMLESSLY and order them around as necessary (so underrated)
  • Signing not only for yourself but for others. Helpful for those who have been granted the authority to sign for VPs and directors
  • Much easier to use than some other PDF viewing services

Cons

ABBYY FineReader

  • Conversion to MS Word (formatting accuracy issues occur)
  • Conversion to MS Excel (formatting accuracy issues occur)

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • The font choices could be better and more robust.
  • Sometimes converting PDF documents to MS Word has formatting problems, like with some tables.
  • Converting MS Word to PDF can be slow sometimes, meaning it is faster to save the MS Word document as a PDF than selecting the file for conversion using the Nitro PDF convert option.

Nitro checks all the boxes for what we need. It is fairly priced, it allows us to read and edit PDF documents, convert PDF to MS Word and convert MS Word to PDF. It allows us to combine multiple files and do all the post processing like adding page numbers and adding headers and footers

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

Nitro Productivity Suite

Nitro Productivity Suite allows a user to accomplish all of the things you would want to do to a document that Adobe does not. Much easier to find the operation you are looking for in Nitro Productivity Suite compared to Adobe

Return on Investment

ABBYY FineReader

  • Automated document conversion using Hot Folder heavily reduced workload [for] our IT Support department.

  • Ability to compare multilingual documents has increased productivity of our multinational departments.

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • ROI was very quick as the license costs were so low. We purchased 8 licenses versus the initial 2 we were planning on for Adobe.
  • More people were able to use the product than we initially thought due to low purchase costs.
  • We haven't had any further costs to own the product after the initial purchase. We would need to purchase new licenses if we wanted to upgrade.
