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.

PaperSave

PaperSave is ideal for any fundraising company. Its ability to import spreadsheets from queries and import documents into constituent records is an invaluable tool for a fundraiser. Though the program sometimes has its hiccups, overall it serves its intended functions quite well.

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.

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.

  • The interface could be updated.
  • The program sometimes will continue to run in the background after Raiser's Edge is closed.
  • Initial use can be a little confusing to learn.

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.

PaperSave is extremely easy to use and integrate into any fundraising office. If your company is using Blackbaud products, PaperSave will integrate seamlessly with Raiser's Edge and Raiser's Edge NXT. The ability to save documents to records seems like such a simple concept, but because Raiser's Edge doesn't offer this function in its own program, PaperSave is a life saver.

Similar to what I mentioned earlier in this review, the main pro of PaperSave for my company is its Raiser's Edge integration. The program loads immediately as soon as Raiser's Edge is launched so there's no need to open separate programs. The documents and queries loaded from PaperSave into Raiser's Edge were simple to upload and read.

I don't think I am able to provide a rating for the support team as I have never had to contact them. However that on its own could be considered a great rating as I believe the best support system is one that isn't needed because the program works so well.

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.

PaperSave works well in part due to its database integration functionality. It allows our team to use Raiser's Edge (our main tool as it's our constituent database) without having to constantly switch back and forth between programs. It's simple enough for new staff members to learn as part of their on-boarding process and hasn't caused any major issues for our team.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • PaperSave allows for a more integrated look at our constituents, which in turn, allows us to develop more strategized asks.
