Foxit PDF SDK

We find Foxit to be the best product/solution for our line of business. The conversion from a .pdf to a Word document is superior to the other major provider. We have experienced zero conversion errors.

1) Attorneys' pages handling, where there are hundreds of existing litigations documents and we need to select some pages and create new ones.2) Filtering out sections of very long documents and create new ones only with the selected ones.3) Apply images to documents even signatures and logos.4) Office automation, especially manual forms evolving to electronic PDF forms.5) Consolidation of several document types such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel and many other non-MS Office into one single document.

I rated the Foxit PDF Software Development Kit high for its usability in my work. Daily I need to send many documents to my clients over email. So to keep their originality on every system I convert them into PDF and then I send to my clients and colleagues. It is also very much useful to encrypt my confidential documents.

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.

I rated this software very high on performance because it is really very quick on my Windows system. It can create any type of PDF files in seconds. It also gives good upload speed when I try to modify my documents for inserting digital signature space. It also gives very good encryption speed to secure my documents.

I have had to contact PowerPDF support on two occasions that I readily recall. In both instances, I worked with very high level technicians that truly understood the capabilities, features and use of their product. In both case, the resolution required several interactions with support and a lot of trial and error. The technicians worked with me every step of the way to get the bottom of the issue and determine the best way to move forward.

Return on Investment

Foxit PDF SDK

  • The security of important financial documents is as important as our sales revenue. And this software is giving my documents that security.
  • We used to print a lot of documents for signature purposes only. But after using this software we create documents which can be signed digitally. By doing this, we are saving on printing cost.
  • It helps me to reduce the risk of any modifications to the important documents I send to my clients and colleagues.

  • Productivity is so high that I could not work without it. Of course, I could go to competition, but with a dent in my current productivity.
  • Power PDF includes some limited OCR version, which is a big plus, especially for not so complex OCR tasks. It saves you money by not buying a full OCR.
  • Power PDF integration with the proprietary scanner driver software makes a seamless transition as you don't need to be retrained on the scan procedure.
