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.

PowerDMS is an excellent tool to be used in a law enforcement setting. Being able to run reports on policies and procedures gives management the ability to verify that these documents have been reviewed, received and understood by staff. It also provides a central repository for all critical documents including policies, procedures, training courses and certificates, accreditation related materials, maps, and countless other activities.

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.

  • Most of my complaints or suggestions are regarding the iPhone app. I wish there were more administrative functions on the app, such as approving workflows from training requests or document approvals, along with managing user profiles such as password resets.

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Honestly, I haven't seen anything like PowerDMS before although I have heard that other products are easier to initially setup. Since setup is not continuous, I wouldn't consider that a deterrent for a long-term product such as this. I definitely would not want to return to tracking policies and procedures or training by spreadsheet, hounding employees directly for follow up, emailing links, and a more non-cohesive management for onboarding, documents, and training.

Return on Investment

Able2Extract Professional

  • 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.
Pamela Harris profile photo

PowerDMS

  • PowerDMS has eliminated the administrative time required to track down document (policies, procedures, forms) review, revision, and distribution.
  • The consolidation of onboarding into a "course" allows new hires to process at least part of the the onboarding information at a pace that suits them and without tying up another staff member's time to go over every detail.
