1) Attorneys' pages handling, where there are hundreds of existing litigations documents and we need to select some pages and create new ones.2) Filtering out sections of very long documents and create new ones only with the selected ones.3) Apply images to documents even signatures and logos.4) Office automation, especially manual forms evolving to electronic PDF forms.5) Consolidation of several document types such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel and many other non-MS Office into one single document.

MS SharePoint

It is the appropriate tool for document repositories that have many people as public, also for documents where a work team of any size can work simultaneously and the document's membership remains joint (unlike OneDrive). Also to keep the versions of the documents secured at each change. Regarding the distribution and organization of documents, it is perfect to segment by libraries, teams, among others, the documents according to the required audience.

Pros

Kofax Power PDF

  • It is very easy to use and straightforward for figuring out the basic and intermediate level usages. I was able to switch from Adobe almost seamlessly.
  • They keep the cost to a minimum compared to other options. As a smaller company, this allowed us to purchase the product for each of our employees and the cost has easily been paid off in paper usage savings as well as productivity.

  • Document sharing - it works really well for this. documents can be included in libraries and organized in folders. Documents can be uploaded as files or links to files stored anywhere that is accessible by URL.
  • Team discussion boards - It does discussion format very well and presents discussion sin a familiar format that all users will recognize. it can also do Wikis.

Cons

Kofax Power PDF

  • When saving as PDF using the Microsoft Office add-in, there needs to be a confirmation box asking if the user is happy to continue with the current settings or whether they need to be modified. There are too many times where I have forgotten to configure the settings beforehand and then realised only after the document has been converted. This is particularly painful when working with large documents as they take time to convert.

  • If you are going to implement its intranet system, you may have some problems, Microsoft actually discourages that from happening.
  • Sometime if you need to search, it requires a lot of internal customization.
  • Social networking is separated from the rest of the intranet.
  • Sometimes when you need to upload a great number of files, it becomes slow, and even some files do not upload, so you need to upload them manually.

We have too much invested at this point to do anything different and there are too many reasons as a company our size to keep it. We are heavily licensed out for Microsoft and have 12 years of SharePoint development baked into who we are. Extracting that as a tool at this point would be dumb and devastating. There are no like-kind competitors to it at an enterprise level that scale and integrate as well.

Most tasks are intuitive, but the ones, I have cited already. To get a 10, the Help file should be rewritten. It is not thorough, confused, and sometimes inconsistent.Menus are well structured, although the Page Rotated section of the ribbon looks a bit out of place.Recent files are well located front and center.

A lot of users can give you many great ideas how to cleverly use SharePoint's core functionality to implement almost any process you need. It is very sturdy, never crashes. Many applications and third party solutions are built for SharePoint so even customization without Microsoft programming skills is rather easy and low cost.

I have had to contact PowerPDF support on two occasions that I readily recall. In both instances, I worked with very high level technicians that truly understood the capabilities, features and use of their product. In both case, the resolution required several interactions with support and a lot of trial and error. The technicians worked with me every step of the way to get the bottom of the issue and determine the best way to move forward.

Support varies by tech and by vendor. I've used Microsoft's support channel and for the most part have been successful to get my questions answered. I've also used third party vendors and have gotten some answers resolved as well, though sometimes getting them on the phone is difficult. It all depends!

Planning to the last detail would be advised. SharePoint is a very large application that takes a lot of finesse to get operational

Alternatives Considered

Kofax Power PDF

I stopped using Adobe products primarily because I was CONSTANTLY being marketed to, both via email and through the products I already paid for. They were always trying to upsell me and get me to subscribe to more monthly/annual payment plans. I am sick and tired of ridiculous software subscriptions and would much rather make a one-time payment for "native" software that is not running in the cloud.

While SharePoint isn't as easy to use as Igloo or Squarespace, it comes bundled with Office 365 and drives the backend of those tools. I don't see SharePoint as a place people want to go and see stuff, but rather as a glue that supports all the other Office Products. If we get more in house expertise, then it could be a place that people manage work, but it's not used that way right now

Return on Investment

Kofax Power PDF

  • Power PDF has increased my ability to provide quality documents to my clients without working what software they use (Office, QuickBooks, etc.).
  • The learning curve for Power PDF was very short, which enabled me to get up and running quickly.
  • Power PDF is a lot less expensive than most alternatives.

  • We moved from DocuShare to MS SharePoint and it's been proven very effective.
  • Using MS SharePoint has provided immediate access to documents to staff where in the past, they would have to wait for an admin staff to forward to them.
  • It has been a positive impact for our organization - our newer staff has really benefited from MS SharePoint.
