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.

Nitro Productivity Suite

This is a great alternative for an SMB company. The cost is fantastic, the features you are looking for are there and a few you may not have known about. If you're looking for a full-blown Acrobat type program, this is an alternative, but if you're using any other Adobe cloud features, I would go with that.

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

  • We have nothing negative to say about Foxit at this time. It is the perfect solution for us.

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • The version we have which is a little older had features in odd places such as adding pages to a PDF was kind of buried.
  • Product seems to run a little slow in a Citrix environment. I believe it would run better on a dedicated PC.
  • I'd like for them to try and mimic Adobe more as that seems to be laid out a little better for end user features.

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.

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.

Nitro Productivity Suite

I downloaded the trial versions of both Acrobat DC and Nitro PDF, and found Nitro to be superior in price, while Acrobat was superior in software features and user-friendliness. I knew I would be using Nitro for basic publishing and editing of PDFs, which both programs do well, but I couldn't justify the extra expense for Acrobat for features I wouldn't use and a slight increase in user-friendliness.

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.

  • Nitro has been an excellent product at a great value but to quantify the return on invest for a software product such as this is an attainable question.
