I think [Atlassian] Confluence is an amazing option for larger companies however for a smaller team of less than 20 it might not be the best choice. It definitely helps our team stay connected while working remotely and we're able to stay on top of projects with ease.

Kofax Power PDF is well suited for our needs. Perhaps that's because we have used it for so long. We don't use all the features all the time, but having these options available is important. You never know when a feature will come in handy. Converting data is our primary application. We have not tried creating a PDF file from scratch because a publisher app works better for us. The desirability of any piece of software is based on the needs of the user.

Pros

Confluence

  • QUICK How-to Guides that can be generated and share instantly
  • One can subscribe to the pages and spaces and receive updates in the feed on their home page
  • Automatic Email notifications of new updates in the Confluence area
  • The platform integrates easily with other Atlassian platforms including third-party apps thus improving its reliability

Kofax Power PDF

  • The conversion features are done well, and easy to use.
  • The Typewriter feature to complete forms is easy to use and much better than needing to print, complete by hand, re-scan to submit.
  • Privacy is important these days, and adding password protection and using the typewriter feature to overwrite confidential data (there may be another way, but it works for me) is easy.
  • I bought the original product for PDF conversion, and it is still important and useful.

Cons

Confluence

  • Over the past 6 years the feature set has not significantly expanded
  • Integrations with 3rd party apps (DropBox, Google Drive, Slack) is either through 3rd party plugins or rudimentary at best
  • Frequent interface upgrades and complicated permissions settings makes getting new employees up to speed fiddly in some cases

Kofax Power PDF

  • The resizing options on Adobe are easier to use.
  • I am hesitant to recommend anything that 'dumbs' down the user interface. Yes, some other PDF programs have a simpler user interface, but I highly value the options your interface offers.
  • The help menus might be able to offer more detail on how to accomplish tasks in the UI.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Very satisfied with the product. With the exception of limited fonts, there's nothing the app can't do that I need it to do.

Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

Most tasks are intuitive, but the ones, I have cited already. To get a 10, the Help file should be rewritten. It is not thorough, confused, and sometimes inconsistent.Menus are well structured, although the Page Rotated section of the ribbon looks a bit out of place.Recent files are well located front and center.

Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

This rating is specifically for Atlassian's self-help documentation on their website. Often times, it is not robust enough to cover a complex usage of one of their features. Frequently, you can find an answer on the web, but not from Atlassian. Instead, it is usually at a power user group elsewhere on the net.

I originally purchased the wrong Kofax product. I purchased the Mac version and it did not have all the options I was looking for. I wanted to purchase the Windows version and run on my Parallels. I requested a refund so I could exchange the product and Kofax immediately issued me a refund without requiring that I purchase the Windows version in exchange. Obviously, I purchased the Windows version based on this pleasant interaction before I even had the opportunity to use the product

Alternatives Considered

Confluence

[Atlassian] Confluence is backed by direct, and superior support from Atlassian versus their vendors. For end users, [Atlassian] Confluence provides way more options for layout and content, while also being simpler and easier to use. Most other tools also require a higher level of interaction with IT or global administrators. With confluence, both content creators and consumers can draft an consume content with a much smoother, more intuitive experience.

Kofax Power PDF

I've mentioned many of the features and how much I have enjoyed using Power PDF. Prior to using this product I have used Adobe and they do have an amazing product as well. I think their menus are set up a little easier and of course they have a widespread reputation. However they have become very very expensive and they require that you pay annual subscription fees to use their product. For this reason I selected Power PDF and don't regret it.

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.

Return on Investment

Confluence

  • Confluence has increased cross-departmental visibility into content, activities, and projects
  • Confluence has also increased collaboration across teams
  • The lack of a workflow has created a wild west environment where stakeholders are confused of where to create and find various types of content

  • I am in a unique role within my organisation and Power PDF has enabled me to make a lot of time savings.
  • I can use Power PDF for document security in a much more efficient way than the organisation has been able to previously.
