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.

PaperTrail

It is very easy to use. We utilize it to save and show the logs for as many apps as we want. You can use it as an addon on Heroku.

PaperTrail

  • Interface is aging and in need of a re-write. It's functional, but not all that nice to work with
  • While the logs are near-real-time, they could greatly improve the speed at which logs are available in the UI
  • Pricing plans are not all that competitive with newer offerings with other companies

PaperTrail has become a basic app for me to save and see app logs. It is very easy to use, very intuitive and easy to customize. The feature I like most is that we can use it with several apps at same time.

PaperTrail's live-tailing performance is adequate and searches over the recent history load quickly. Searching over long periods of time can be extremely slow, however.

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

I only used Logz.io for a very brief time. It seemed a bit more difficult to setup than Papertrail.

Return on Investment

ABBYY FineReader

  • Automated document conversion using Hot Folder heavily reduced workload [for] our IT Support department.
  • The amount of storage required for digitized paper documents has been reduced by 30%.
  • Ability to compare multilingual documents has increased productivity of our multinational departments.

PaperTrail

  • Free plan is sufficient for development and small services, and the paid plans are very cheap at low log volume. For us, the price is right with PaperTrail - though I can't speak to how their pricing compares at very high volumes.
  • Adding cloud-logging to your apps can really speed up development and debugging - the impact to engineering productivity cannot be understated.
