FineReader is critical for any business that handles scanned documents or works with files that need conversion to Excel, PDF, Powerpoint or various other programs. It's ability to automatically process, read documents and suggest tables is impressive. It can take printed documents and convert all of the text to a editable format which is a huge time saver. In regards to tables it can automatically find and identify columns and separate them out for immediate use in Excel

Cons
ABBYY
  • 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

ITAZ Technologies
  • Not a truly scalable software package, best fit for single or smaller organizations up to 15 users.
  • Does not force structure and is less document management and more document storage / organization.
  • Pricing is not cheap but is relative to what you receive, online document storage and advanced access across devices.

While Adobe Reader can identify documents and convert them to some other various formats, it cannot process the documents to identify tables for use in Excel. We only had success by letting Adobe read a file for any identifiable text but it wasn't always accurate. FineReaders ability to handle hundreds of pages at once felt leaps and bounds above Adobe

  • Very scalable, but only to a certain level (1-15 users or so max).
  • Interface and usability are user-friendly, without sacrificing features and power.
  • Advanced tagging and searching allows users to save documents and organize them "their way" without forcing specific workflows.
