It's great for presentations. It makes even the most drab presentation more interesting, and gives you the ability to add animated elements to your presentation. Everybody uses Microsoft PowerPoint, but for Mac it's a little slow and unresponsive. Flip PDF Pro for Mac kind of solves that issue – you can build your project in InDesign, export it out, then import it into Flip PDF Pro. It sounds like a bit of a process but it's actually very easy. Any designer can pick it up and run with it.

Kofax is particularly well suited when the work needed requires compiling a multitude of documents. The ease of functionality for compiling many PDFs into one large final product is imperative in my line of work and it exceeds all of my expectations. It vastly outperforms the competitors in this regard. Others do not have the same clean, final product with bookmarks and ease of compiling that Kofax provides.

Pros

FlipBuilder

  • You can customize or add certain things like your title, logo, toolbar icon appearance, background, fonts, etc. It feels a lot like a design program – which is nice, as a designer.
  • The program allows you to embed almost any sort of media into your flip book – GIFs are easy to add in and work with, they add a dynamic element to your presentation (which wasn't possible before).
  • You can create these things called “hot spots” – basically certain trigger areas in your document that can activate something when clicked – like take you to a e-commerce site, for example.

  • Power PDF integrates well with the Microsoft 365 (formerly Microsoft Office ) modules. This makes it very convenient to create .pdf documents directly from Microsoft Word and Excel and automatically open the resulting .pdf document in Kofax Power PDF for any required post processing.
  • Power PDF allows easy "drag-and-drop" assembly of a .pdf document composed of pages from various other .pdf documents. This capability is crucial to generating a single cohesive .pdf document from a variety of source applications.
  • Power PDF's cropping function allows for easily picking out excerpts from a .pdf document for use in other .pdf documents or other applications. The ability to save these files in JPEG format also provides good flexibility for importing to other applications.

Cons

FlipBuilder

  • My documents sometimes had a problem with import and output – sometimes it would take a substansial amount of time to export something.
  • In their mulit-lingual version, our freelance linguist caught some mistakes, some words were not translated or translated into other languages – which can make us look pretty bad.
  • There's a limit on audio you can output for each page in your document – it had to be "one audio for two pages".

  • Difficult to add stamps - wanted to add a "checkmark" stamp and had to first find an image then work hard to make it a stamp
  • Would be nice to have a better library of stamps for different use cases
  • Sometimes the "search and redact" feature misses things if they are not exactly right. For example, the same numbers with a hyphen are found but without a hyphen, they are not.

    It is an awesome alternative to adobe. We like the 1 time fee over the monthly. We are typically offered discounts on updated products and services offered by kofax, and are overall very happy with the performance of the program. I can't see any reason to switch at this point

    I have rarely, if ever, had to search the help file or read up on features to make them work. The features I use are fairly intuitive and quickly mastered. Kofax also provides a YouTube Channel with training videos that have been helpful on occasion. Mastery of frequently used features was simple

    Other that a PDF partially disappearing if left up for a long period of time - no issues. (If you close it and reopen it, it is all there. We have some PDFs that are 400-600 pages long.)

    Pages nearly always load at the expected rapid speed. Some documents that print quickly from Adobe Reader print much more slowly from Power PDF. I have never generated a report - that's a feature I didn't know existed until now and do not know what it's for

    Again, Kofax/Nuance Power PDF does everything I need for a fraction of the cost of other/competitor software. The switch to Kofax/Nuance Power PDF was a breeze. The interface has some familiarity to it. We're able to create, collaborate, revise, track changes, password-protect, encrypt and share all types of PDFs - fillable, non-fillable, pre-populated, secure, etc.

    I got an overview of the product from my predecessor who was about to retire from the job I now hold. He did not go into very many of the features and probably only knew about the ones he used most frequently.

    We watched the training videos and tested out the features and functionality side by side. Some features are not used on a regular basis is it is convenient to go back and review training on that particular functionality when needed.

    Alternatives Considered

    FlipBuilder

    There are several PDF conversion programs out there, but really Flip PDF Pro for Mac is probably the best one that I've encountered. The amount of versatility in the program really sells it to me. It works just like a design program, but as a customizable PDF, and it's easy-to-use interface really helps speed things up with our workflow and process. There's a lot of competitors out there, but none of them really stack up.

    Kofax Power PDF seems to be as good or better than any Adobe PDF product and is much more affordable for small businesses! Price and features were the main drivers for my choice, besides the fact that I was familiar with the product through Nuance. I've been very happy with the flexibility of Kofax Power PDF.

    Not really familiar since I'm the only person who uses it. But in the past it has been my understanding that Power PDF was offered only on a single-license basis, so it's been expensive for me to use it at home and at work because I had to pay for it on my own. In my current position management supports it so I at least only have to pay for it once.

    Return on Investment

    FlipBuilder

    • It makes our presentations more interesting and dynamic.
    • It allows us to go around using Microsoft PowerPoint (which is a little slow and unresponsive on Mac).
    • Using its animation and hotlink elements, we're able to broaden our services with this program. It really helps out a lot.

    • The ability to make images of text searchable enables me to do my job. Without this ability it was virtually impossible to find relevant information in these large documents.
    • The return on investment was huge. I can now take on much more work than before.
