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.

M-Files is well suited for a manufacturing company or business looking for an established content management structure. It's a solution for version control, automated workflows, permission settings, quick searchable database and automated retention. Any company seeking ISO certifications or working towards standards should consider this system for managing their content. M-Files could be less appropriate for a company not wanting to customize the product, as it will take time to structure and implement to the company.

Pros

Able2Extract Professional

  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.

M‑Files

  • Metadata drive - searches through metadata and throughout the document itself to retrieve what the user is looking for. Finds documents fast and easily using the search bar. Additional filters can be added if needed to filter further.
  • Advanced automated workflows. Assignments are automatically generated once a workflow state is reached and emails notifications are sent to assignees. Automation ensures smooth transitions and eliminates manual triggers.
  • Traceability and version control. M-Files tracks each change to the document itself and to the metadata. This is important for audits and having the version history at your fingertips.

Cons

Able2Extract Professional

  • 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.

  • Main menu not as intuitive.
  • Client set up was not as easy and streamlined.

I noticed some lagging with the integration with Microsoft Office but not so much that I would not use it. It has gotten better with updates. to be fair the issues were when Office 2013 first came out.
