FoxIt Software
Where FoxIt suites best is if you need an alternative to the big-name PDF editors. It's pretty easy to use and it's comparable to Adobe or any other document editor. It is best used when mocking up proposals for work, creating employee handbooks, putting together offer letters, and essentially any other important document. This is not suitable for creating brochures or pamphlets.

We transformed a paper-intensive operation, child support enforcement, to an almost completely electronic environment. Our child support case managers can now easily find all case file documentation (no longer searching through the file room or on someone's desk) and have access to these files from any secure location, including the court room where we need these documents during the hearings.

Cons
FoxIt Software
  • Combine multiple PDFs into one PDF
  • File explorer preview is not good
  • In the C# SDK, which is a wrapper of native C++ code. We need to be extra careful in coding and protecting the calls, because it can be very easy to crash the application in case of errors.

  • MaxxVault has several products that can and do all work together, but it can be tough to articulate the various product names.

Usability
FoxIt Software
Our whole takeoff department uses the Foxit PDF SDK. To read plan files, produce pdf files, and take notes, we utilize it in conjunction with other tools. We may utilize the Foxit PDF SDK to read, edit, markup, print, and produce PDF files for internal use or to distribute to clients. Some of our users adore the software, but others choose to use alternative programs because they believe Foxit PDF SDK is too restrictive.

Performance
FoxIt Software
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.

Support Rating
FoxIt Software
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.

Alternatives Considered
FoxIt Software
Adobe Sign can be really frustrating and difficult to log into, renew subscription, and other background functions. Tech support is between useless and non-existent. On the other hand, there is better control over when recipients have been contacted. Overall, Foxit PDF SDK is a much better product, especially for smaller businesses or ones which don't use it consistently every day, year-round (if that's you, you will get used to Adobe, and it will be less annoying.)

We are currently using both programs. But it would be better if they were to sync together.

  • We scaled down our file room size and cut our leasing costs.
  • We transformed several processes from iterative physical hand-offs to being completely done within MaxxVault workflow. The turnaround for a few of these processes went from days to minutes.
