Foxit PDF SDK

I prefer another program for a few reasons. One is that I am more familiar with another program, and two is that I feel that the other application has more capabilities for what I am trying to do. However, that is not saying that Foxit PDF SDK is not a powerful and useful tool. Many other engineers and estimators in our department love using Foxit PDF SDK because of its ease of use. It is much more user-friendly, and there are not as many options available, which can be intimidating to some. For those that want full capabilities and customization, I would say another program might be better suited for them. However, if you want a step up from something like adobe, with more options and that is more user-friendly, I would say Foxit PDF SDK is an excellent choice.

Nitro Productivity Suite

Nitro is well suited for the common tasks we use like include viewing and editing. The redaction tool is very useful when sharing documents with sensitive information. The downfall is we still must use Adobe Acrobat on occasion. Some PDFs will not open, view, or print properly in Nitro.

Pros

Foxit PDF SDK

  • Converting .pdf documents to Word without losing the context of the sentence.
  • Conversion is very clean compared to the market leaders.

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • Ability to combine files SEAMLESSLY and order them around as necessary (so underrated)
  • Signing not only for yourself but for others. Helpful for those who have been granted the authority to sign for VPs and directors
  • Much easier to use than some other PDF viewing services

Cons

Foxit PDF SDK

  • Its mobile application is not as good as its Windows application.
  • Sometimes it takes lots of time to generate large PDF files compared to Adobe.
  • Its toolbar is slightly difficult to use for me because of its arrangements.

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • The font choices could be better and more robust.
  • Sometimes converting PDF documents to MS Word has formatting problems, like with some tables.
  • Converting MS Word to PDF can be slow sometimes, meaning it is faster to save the MS Word document as a PDF than selecting the file for conversion using the Nitro PDF convert option.

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.

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 would give it this rating because I personally have never had to contact support regarding Foxit PDF SDK or anything I am trying to do within the program. As I mentioned before, it is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. I think the program in itself lends support to the user because it is so user-friendly and has an easy to use interface.

Nitro checks all the boxes for what we need. It is fairly priced, it allows us to read and edit PDF documents, convert PDF to MS Word and convert MS Word to PDF. It allows us to combine multiple files and do all the post processing like adding page numbers and adding headers and footers

Foxit is number 1, not only for the quality of the product but the pricing is 60% less expensive. It is a great product. Thank you, Foxit.

Return on Investment

Foxit PDF SDK

  • Cost of use is not as high
  • Great ROI
Dustin Clark | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • ROI was very quick as the license costs were so low. We purchased 8 licenses versus the initial 2 we were planning on for Adobe.
  • More people were able to use the product than we initially thought due to low purchase costs.
  • We haven't had any further costs to own the product after the initial purchase. We would need to purchase new licenses if we wanted to upgrade.
