Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

Esker

I would recommend Esker based on the automation of invoice sending - it is very nice to have a tool that not only stores all of the contact info, but sends the invoices out as well. The tracking feature is great to have to see if the submission was successful. I do think that overall it could be much more user-friendly, but once you know what you're doing, it is not hard software to use.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • Lack of customization built in

Esker does everything that it promises to do, but it is very hard to figure out. I am a very tech-savvy person, but I needed extensive training to be able to use the basic functions of Esker. Once you know what you're doing, it's not too hard, but I don't understand why they couldn't make it easier to use.

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Kofax is very similar to Esker in terms of functionality as well as ease of use. I feel that both programs work well, but neither is very user-friendly. Kofax is more expensive, which is why Esker wins.

Return on Investment

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.

  • Esker has improved our DSO by getting invoices out to our customers promptly.
  • Esker does make certain tasks take longer due to the poor organization of the website.
