Likelihood to Recommend

Kofax PaperPort

I honestly do not know of scenarios where it is not suited. For instance I use it to organize all my home receipts, manuals, documents, personal history documents, genealogy, recipes, craft instructions, etc. But also use it for complex business uses as well.

PDFelement

It's a wonderful asset to have when you lose your original Word doc, etc. so you can still edit a document (and not have to start from ground zero). That feature alone is why I bought this product and why I will continue to recommend.

Pros

  • PDFelement provides the same powerful features as Adobe Acrobat, but the interface is easy to learn and use. The product is extremely intuitive, which saves our clients from becoming frustrated as they learn the product.
  • PDFelement Pro's ability to create fillable forms with the click of one button is one of our clients favorite features. I was impressed at how accurately PDFelement performed this task and the ease with which these fields can be edited, if needed.
  • Security is more important than ever these days and PDFelement provides the encryption and permissions to protect documents quickly and easily. I especially like the batch encrypt feature, this makes it easy to protect multiple files with the same password.
  • PDFelement makes it easy to extract the data from form fields. This is a huge plus for our clients.

Cons

Kofax PaperPort

  • Better options to edit and rearrange the toolbar menus
  • Nothing else, it's really a great product!
Diane Leigh Davison | TrustRadius Reviewer

PDFelement

  • I wish there was a lighter program for just reviewing a document and then to transition seamlessly to an editing mode. It takes a few seconds longer to load than Preview on my Mac, and based on that frustration, I use Preview to view documents.
  • A lower price for upgrades.

There is a lot of learning. Although some of the functions you can probably pick up relatively quickly, some of them, including compressing the size or using a different language, remains a myth to me.

PDFelement is always in contact with me, by email and by giving constant tips and recommendations. But what makes me give you a 10, was the outstanding support service received on July 9th by one of your support professionals Amanda, who helped me with a tariff issue, and makes me [rate] your product.

Alternatives Considered

Kofax PaperPort

I don't know of any other software that manages as much as PaperPort and have never looked as I have been using the software for over 20 years! I started using the Pro version likely about 10-15 years ago.
Diane Leigh Davison | TrustRadius Reviewer

PDFelement

I didn't try or buy other programs, but did a good bit of research on them. I went with PDFelement because of the lower pricing, and because of the rich features I learned it had.I also appreciated the great customer service I received from reps in the community forums, which showed me they have an aim in keeping their customers happy - which is always good to have when using fairly complex technical apps.

Return on Investment

Kofax PaperPort

  • The cost is truly minimal for the amount of daily use of the software
Diane Leigh Davison | TrustRadius Reviewer

PDFelement

  • For me, it's been very important to me that my business as a pet sitter and dog walker not leave a negative footprint on the environment. To that end, it's been very important that i'm able to do as much paperwork as possible without using paper. PDFelement is wonderful at helping me meet those goals.
