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.

FoxitPhantom PDF

FoxitPhantom works very well for any kind of business administrative function; particularly in a "paperless" business environment. Documents that are originally created using Adobe Acrobat work seamlessly in Foxit and can be merged and edited with other documents. In my mind, the only limitation to the software is that it may not work well in situations where you need to view two documents on different monitors at the same time.

Pros

  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.
  • Allows certain segments of documents to be selected for editing.
  • Allows bulk conversion.

  • The UI is very similar to the Microsoft Office "Ribbon", so our users have learned it quite quickly.
  • Very good OCR and edit capabilities.
  • While not exactly small in size, it's far smaller and lighter on system resources than Adobe.

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.

  • Foxit is the best PDFviewer out there, However, an improvement on how to use new features that may be availed later would be very helpful.

Issues get resolved eventually, but it requires a lot of customer follow up to make sure they are being worked on.

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

I would say that when you want to get a bigger share of the market and take business from long time consolidated applications like Acrobat, you really need to try harder and give something more to the user to be able to change their mind and switch to Foxit.In our case licensing was an important factor and at the beginning we had a small learning curve with users asking how to open PDF files and what was that orange icon. The truth is that we as users accepted the new software happily because simply said: it does the job.After using Foxit I would not go back to Acrobat, I like better the connectivity, the simplicity and the way it manages the tabs.

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.
