ABBYY FineReader

[ABBYY FineReader is well suited] to edit advanced documents that contain text, images, tables, columns among others, I used it when I have a large text file and they ask me to go in editable file type like docx, Another common use is when in documents there is personal or sensitive information that should not be public knowledge and you want to cure or erase this information without prejudice to the understanding of the background of the document.

WinZip

It is well suited to environments that are using multiple platforms, or operating systems. The compatibility of Winzip with various OS's is really good. It is also well suited for organizations that are looking for something that is easy to use from an end-user perspective and doesn't really require training to use.It is less suited for organizations that need/want a low/no-cost compression solution. This would not be Winzip, as they don't offer any "free" options, only paid one. It is also less suited for environments that need to have a solution that will create the smallest size compression file(s) possible. There are some other competitors on the market that is a bit better than Winzip at doing this.

Cons

ABBYY FineReader

  • 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

WinZip

  • One area of improvement is with regards to pricing and the mass market. Since there is no free options for the software (as compared to some other compression programs), this may be a disadvantage to many organizations that are looking for a low/no-cost solution.
  • Another area of improvement can be to its ability to create the smallest file sizes, as compared to what some other compression programs can do. It is not the top contender in this case, but improvements can be made in the future.

Listen, nobody can get a perfect 10 (just ask your boss at review time, you can't say you are a 10 because then you'd have nothing to strive for!). WinZip's Support team knows their product, which is a fantastic thing to hear, unlike when you call giant companies (Microsoft, Vipre, and Norton) and their turnaround in their support center is so disgusting that their Support team only knows how to read off of a script

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

WinZip

Also, I have tested and used the following similar programs:WinRAR7-ZipHow Winzip stacks about against these similar compression programs, and others on the market is Winzip has been around for a very long time (longer than a lot of others), so there is something to be said for its widespread use in industry and organizations around the world. It is a solid product, in terms of the capabilities it has, and the performance of it.It also has a better Graphical User Interface (GUI) than many others on the market. This has helped greatly to save time in is to use the program right away, and not to have consult documentation on how to use the product.
