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.

Well suited: organizations that work extensively with PDF files and need to quickly and efficiently create a "good enough" product with non-technical users. Not appropriate: organizations that require extensive fine-tuning to their final product. In this case, they should spend more time and resources on more specialized tools and employee training.

  • One of the best things that Smallpdf does is pdf conversion both to and from pdf. It is especially great to transform pdf tables into Excel documents.
  • PDF splitting is really great since allows for cropping large files and just keep the information necessary; something that comes really handy when presenting information to your supervisors.
  • PDF merging also works wonders, it allows for mixing several different pdf documents into just one of them. It is extremely easy to set up.
  • This a really fast pdf reader, it feels really fast compared to other options that tend to feel clunky. Its workspace is super comfortable and well organized so finding a tool you need is always a simple task.

Cons

Kofax PaperPort

  • Better options to edit and rearrange the toolbar menus
  • Nothing else, it's really a great product!

  • Improve the conversion from .pdf to Excel. Sometimes when we have a lot of tables in .pdf and convert them to a spreadsheet, the fonts and tables will be messed up.
  • Being worried about uploading documents with personal data for editing or conversion.

My most of the work is based on office files so I always require this software. Sometimes I need to print my survey documents so I need to convert them into PDF for actual formatting of the original document. There this software helps me a lot. And its PDF compression is the most required feature for me to help me in my office work.

1.- Because it is easy to use and each function is duly indicated so you can not go wrong.2.- Its service is fast, it takes only a few seconds to transform the files and in less than a minute it is downloaded and you can occupy it without problem. 4.-This IS online so you do not install anything, which is very useful because you can also use it from a tablet or your mobile

I gave this rating because it has become mostly a useful tool as it is accessible online, and any PDF-related tasks can be sorted out only through it. However, it is not available in offline mode.

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.

I used to convert my PDF files with LightPDF software. But It was slightly difficult for me to navigate on that software. The interface of that software was not very easy to understand. And compression result quality was also not satisfactory. So I selected Smallpdf for all my PDF-related work.
