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.

It's easy to use, making it very efficient for us as we do not have to train additional people on how to use this software. It opens up documents quickly and saves quickly as well. Overall the usability is not an issue for us at all. It is also extremely easy to integrate it with other PDF programs.

Performance wise, PDF Xchange Viewer and Editor is flawless. It runs fast, and I haven't experienced any immediately crashing. The reports save quickly, and the document size is never an issue. It saves into a regular PDF, and we're able to open it on any other program or computer. All text boxes, features, and headers show up flawlessly on other programs.

The application had no issues (we did not contact support) and that's why I give a 10.

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
