Adobe Acrobat DC

Adobe Acrobat DC is an essential part of every office's software toolkit - the ability to easily create and distribute information in an easily opened yet secure format is invaluable. I don't really see who wouldn't be able to find use for Acrobat. There are even some really powerful pieces of functionality that we don't use such as OCR reading that I can imagine being incredibly useful.

Kofax Capture

We use it specifically for data capture of printed medical text. It scans bar codes on recognizing labs, encounter notes, prescriptions, and outside medical records. The business office uses the program for billing and scanning purposes.

Pros

  • Security - whilst no security measures are without their weaknesses, the protection of our documents and web assets afforded by Acrobat DC does allow us to have a greater level of control over content we release to some of our clients and customers.
  • Ease of use - the tried and tested Adobe interface is relatively intuitive and easy to use which is definitely an advantage when training new members of staff.
  • Universality of the format - I know this isn't something that's specific to Acrobat, but they are, in my opinion, market leaders when it comes to pdf creation and editing. We use a range of other Adobe products and being able to deliver information to clients in a way that they can always access without needing to invest in Photoshop or Illustrator is invaluable.

Cons

  • The app can be a little slow and somewhat laggy when you're importing or exporting big documents
  • The application can be really difficult and confusing to use when you start using it for the first time

  • We struggled with configuring Kofax with AP Automation. We used to receive vouchers in different formats by different companies, by different departments. The people from different departments used to scan those vouchers through regular scanners to a central location, which ended up as image pdfs. We fed these image pdfs through Kofax Capture for character recognition, which was painful as the accuracy of recognition was 50 to 60%.
  • Having a connectors with a workflow tool would be helpful where people can validate and approve the output.
  • More samples and documentation related to use of API in .NET applications would be a good improvement, that would help users to adapt the product easily into their organization.

Cost of Kofax is high, however the cost to benefit scenarios always pay off.

Alternatives Considered

I don't feel that there are any comparable programs. Acrobat is in my opinion the industry standard.

Kofax is quicker when searching mass amounts of documents and data. Any filters would bring up immediate information, whereas in Access the database is slower.
