This is one of the most user-friendly QMS programs I have used because it does not require lengthy training to navigate the system. We are able to bring on a new employee and have them start their own initial onboard training in Qualio with only a simple introductory message that shares a few key instructions. The available training in Qualio Help has proved very effective when needed. An individual can pick whatever training is appropriate at that moment and there will be instructions on demand on any topic related to Qualio operations. Qualio is relatively new software and is maturing with a responsive staff that releases new updates on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. It has grown incapability in the two years I have used it and it continues to evolve through customer inputs and looking at other state-of-the-art products. The staff listen and respond quickly compared to my past experiences with other QMS software. There is an opportunity for them to provide more and better features, but the gap is closing and the Qualio engineers have been very collaborative to work with, providing us opportunities to participate in their directions for growth.

Cons
FoxIt
  • I have a dual monitor setup at work and there are times when I wish that I could view pdf documents on both monitors at the same time. I have not yet figured out how to do that with FoxitPhantom as it appears to limit the user to displaying multiple pdf documents as separate tabs on the same screen. If dual screen is an option in the software, it needs to be more apparent.
  • I can't think of any other desired improvements. This software really does everything that I need it to do.

  • I would appreciate if similar documents are grouped together. For instance if engineering documents are put in one category and management document in a different category
  • Qualio has links to external documents but it would be helpful if it linked the user to sections within the document also
  • I would prefer that users be able to purchase licences directly without contacting a representative

Because very few editors are so easy to use and deploy backed by speed and performance. Foxit PDF is known for its speed and performance, allowing users to open and work with PDF files quickly and efficiently
Foxit's user-friendly interface is easy to navigate and use, making it a popular choice for users who are new to PDF software.

Usability
FoxIt
Foxit Phantom is pretty easy to use, but it is not as intuitive as the latest Adobe PDF products. Although the initial transition across the organization was filled with negative reactions, I think that over a few months, all departments were able to adapt to the new software and feel like they could find what they need within the tool.

Performance
FoxIt
FoxitPhantom PDF integrates very well with the Microsoft Office products, which is where I found I use this the most. It performs about as well as can be expected, without any out of place latency. Whether it be merging, deleting, editing or rearranging pages, its performance holds up even with larger documents.

I haven't personally had interaction with the customer support from FoxitPhantom, however based on conversations I have had with members in the organization, I was given positive feedback. Their website has a lot of information and tutorials. If you need to contact them, they are quick to respond. User manuals are readily available.

Two great things Qualio has for customer support. 1. They are available online and on the phone, if needed, 24/7 with very friendly and knowledgeable people. Usually, the wait is no more than 10 or 15 min, and while you wait, you can search their online help library. I used to call first, but now I've found that their online help library usually has he answers already and the instructions are clear. Usually, I learn more than I needed. So I now go there first and only call if I don't find anything in the online help library.

Alternatives Considered
FoxIt
I would say that when you want to get a bigger share of the market and take business from long time consolidated applications like Acrobat, you really need to try harder and give something more to the user to be able to change their mind and switch to Foxit. In our case licensing was an important factor and at the beginning we had a small learning curve with users asking how to open PDF files and what was that orange icon. The truth is that we as users accepted the new software happily because simply said: it does the job. After using Foxit I would not go back to Acrobat, I like better the connectivity, the simplicity and the way it manages the tabs.

Much better suited to a small start-up environment than Green Light Guru. Less suited in terms of usability compared to Q Pulse which has more bespoke configuration options, is easier to configure, and has more modules that interact with each other. Have tried Q Pulse and Green Light Guru.

  • The number of emails received.. end up just deleting as it is spamming my inbox.
  • Benefitting from E-sign approvals.
  • Keeping track of our documents in a efficient and better way.
  • Amazing to use a cloud based system where everything is not on paper.
