Able2Extract Professional

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.

Sonian Archiving

It's a great product for archiving emails but I believe it could expand its features to make it more competitive. The search capability really stands out for me, particularly at an administrator level. It reduces time and effort by allowing you to quickly find and access data.

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.

  • It's not possible to integrate the Sonian archive with Outlook. The outlook add-in allows users to quickly retrieve items that have been archived, directly from their Outlook client.
  • Sonian does not currently offer email management systems such as Email continuity, spam protection etc., which you can get through other archiving suppliers as an all-in-one bundled solution with email archiving included.

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

Sonian is a pure SaaS solution and is easy to manage and use. It's cost effective and does exactly what it says on the tin

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.

  • We saw a significant reduction in storage of email data that was previously stored in PST files on local machines.
  • We can archive data for longer periods, which drives retention and email data storage needs.
  • This product gives us quick access and support for eDiscovery requests from legal departments.
