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.

It is well suited to environments that are using multiple platforms, or operating systems. The compatibility of Winzip with various OS's is really good. It is also well suited for organizations that are looking for something that is easy to use from an end-user perspective and doesn't really require training to use.It is less suited for organizations that need/want a low/no-cost compression solution. This would not be Winzip, as they don't offer any "free" options, only paid one. It is also less suited for environments that need to have a solution that will create the smallest size compression file(s) possible. There are some other competitors on the market that is a bit better than Winzip at doing this.

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

WinZip

  • One area of improvement is with regards to pricing and the mass market. Since there is no free options for the software (as compared to some other compression programs), this may be a disadvantage to many organizations that are looking for a low/no-cost solution.
  • Another area of improvement can be to its ability to create the smallest file sizes, as compared to what some other compression programs can do. It is not the top contender in this case, but improvements can be made in the future.

Listen, nobody can get a perfect 10 (just ask your boss at review time, you can't say you are a 10 because then you'd have nothing to strive for!). WinZip's Support team knows their product, which is a fantastic thing to hear, unlike when you call giant companies (Microsoft, Vipre, and Norton) and their turnaround in their support center is so disgusting that their Support team only knows how to read off of a script

Also, I have tested and used the following similar programs:WinRAR7-ZipHow Winzip stacks about against these similar compression programs, and others on the market is Winzip has been around for a very long time (longer than a lot of others), so there is something to be said for its widespread use in industry and organizations around the world. It is a solid product, in terms of the capabilities it has, and the performance of it.It also has a better Graphical User Interface (GUI) than many others on the market. This has helped greatly to save time in is to use the program right away, and not to have consult documentation on how to use the product.
