Able2Extract Professional

Able2Extract is extremely helpful if you have a PDF with text that you want to manipulate. By converting it into another file format that is more conducive to text, you can correct spelling mistakes, copy paragraphs, and remove them or relocate them. Since I had to take spreadsheets and text from a PDF and insert them into a Word document, Able2Extract Professional was the exact tool I needed to avoid simply taking screenshots.

I would suggest Smallpdf for simple needs in terms of PDFs management that can be [easily] resolved such as: size compression, deleting of pages and file conversions. This tool is very user-friendly and easy to use, it is available online so the user doesn't need to download any software. In case of heavy files compression, the tool isn't appropriate since it doesn't support heavy documents.

Cons

Able2Extract Professional

  • GUI can always improve, even if it's currently good
  • Better how-to instructions to address initial learning curve
  • Functionality could be inserted into Adobe Acrobat Pro, potentially merging products

Smallpdf

  • When you download a condensed file it automatically renames it. There should be an option to name it yourself.
  • The website layout is not the most professional looking, but it is simple enough to use.
  • When reordering PDF pages, it can get a bit glitchy. I would prefer to have multiple options for moving pages: drag/drop, arrows, type in the page number you want it to be, etc.

I give this rating to Smallpdf because it comes with a large array of tools and gadgets. It allows not only pdf reading but also mixing, splitting, conversion to and from pdf, pdf compression or protecting. It is really complete and it works excellent compared to other much more expensive alternatives in the market.

The output quality of the results produced by this software is very good. In some of the situations where the size of the files are big, this software takes time to upload the files but the download speed is quite good and the quality of the documents are satisfactory. PDF compression results are amazing in this software. It reduces the size without compromising on quality.

I gave this rating because it has become mostly a useful tool as it is accessible online, and any PDF-related tasks can be sorted out only through it. However, it is not available in offline mode.

Alternatives Considered

Able2Extract Professional

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Smallpdf

Smallpdf was better in comparison [to] Adobe Acrobat Reader and FoxitPhantom PDF in terms of having a very simple user interface and having a mobile app that can help you do all the features on the go. The drawback in comparison with other applications is that they can handle large documents with better processing on them and more features.

Return on Investment

Able2Extract Professional

  • Able2Extract Professional allows me to compile annual reports without having to seek out creators of supplemental material and ask them to rerun their reports in a different file format
  • Our business objective of maintaining consistent branding is achievable through converting PDFs into file formats where we can alter text and swap out logos
  • Able2Extract Professional has the speed and ease of use we need to meet our reporting deadlines
Daniel Epstein | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smallpdf

  • It has allowed me to convert files easily, so I do not waste time thinking how to do it ...
  • Another positive impact, is that by being able to pass the web files from PDF to Word or another format you can extract information more easily so you save time in the preparation of tests and guides for students.
