Conga Composer

There are so many opportunities to use Conga, and that's what I love about it. We use it for a few of our documents, but now I've become aware of how many more of our processes we can move from manual entry to automative processes. It's probably well suited for organizations that use word documents, write ups, and other items- probably wouldn't be well suited for organizations just needing to see the numbers

Kofax Power PDF

I am so happy I found Kofax Power PDF. It actually came with my all-in-one printer and I absolutely loved it, [so] when I purchased my next all-in-one, I continued to use this software. I love the ease of combining documents. This is so much easier to use and I have not run into any problems. I do not ever plan to go back to the competitor's software. This has allowed us to save money on paper as well as time and has allowed the company to be more productive.

Pros

Conga Composer

  • We use Conga primarily for document generation.
  • An example is Generation of Proposals
  • Another example is generation of quotes
  • We have also used Conga to generate invoices
  • At times we have used Conga to generate formal documents for Govt purposes. Essentially any type of document that is based on Salesforce data is a good use case for Conga.

Kofax Power PDF

  • Marking (eg highlighting important info) up a PDF document to emphasize critical information to others.
  • Converting a word or other document prior to submitting to the public. Reduces file size and reduces chances of corruption of the master document.
  • A host of features like edit options; highlight options; cropping; converting in both directions
  • Combining multiple PDF's into one document

Cons

Conga Composer

  • While it is a much easier experience than using code to arrive at a document solution, it can still get VERY technical. Beyond the click and drag style of document that you see in the demonstrations.
  • When it goes wrong, finding out WHERE it has gone wrong can be maddening. There is a lot of support out there but that sometimes translates to a vast amount of options to investigate when troubleshooting.

Kofax Power PDF

  • Convert menu and its help are not easy to understand. Trial and error is the workaround.
  • Crop, a pretty simple feature, has a non-intuitive way to perform the crop action. It is not easy to figure out when a crop size applies or not to other pages.
  • Typewriter mode looks like the commentary feature or Text editing. I never used as I could not understand the benefits. Maybe a YouTube video would help.
  • Fill out electronically an existing hardcopy form. It is unclear whether the product does it.

It's a big part of what we do internally, so would renew as it saves us time and is part of our process. In order to switch we'd need a good price break with same functions available

Takes a lot to set up initally but once it is then it's solid so need to get over that hump first

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.

Support has been pretty good when used. They are very good with proactive notifications of any system issues.

I haven't used it that much. Some cases took a while to resolve because they weren't escalated in a timely manner. This happens with almost every technology company, so...Kofax/Nuance is no worse than many good companies on this one. But, you asked, so there it is.

Alternatives Considered

Conga Composer

We chose Conga due to the price point (cost for licenses). It was among the more affordable options but we did not have to sacrifice quality. In addition, the integration with Salesforce is key for us. We are able to connect student interactions and actions with our mailings. We also like how it is user friendly

Kofax Power PDF

Kofax Power PDF is about 1/7 the cost of these programs and offers most if not all of the same features, so why go anywhere else. we used to use Adobe but quickly realized I could buy a copy of Power PDF for everyone in the whole company for the cost of one copy of Adobe.

Return on Investment

Conga Composer

  • It provided a consistent quote template...everyone's quotes looked like we wanted them to.
  • It protected data integrity by controlling the output formats (i.e. PDF vs. Word).
  • It worked seamlessly behind the scenes making it easy for the team to be self sufficient generating documents.
Rick Scouffas | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kofax Power PDF

  • It has has helped us provide professional-looking resources for our association's members.
  • When we need to update a PDF, and do not have the source document, Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance Power PDF) allows us to easily make minor updates.
  • The clickable table of contents is helpful, and easy to update. This helps our readers to find items quickly.
