Likelihood to Recommend

Kofax Power PDF

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.

PaperTrail

It is very easy to use. We utilize it to save and show the logs for as many apps as we want. You can use it as an addon on Heroku.

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.

PaperTrail

  • PaperTrail is less expensive than many of its competitors.
  • PaperTrail is very easy to set up; you can start collecting logs in no time.
  • It is easy to configure email alerts and Slack integrations with PaperTrail.

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.

PaperTrail

  • Interface is aging and in need of a re-write. It's functional, but not all that nice to work with
  • While the logs are near-real-time, they could greatly improve the speed at which logs are available in the UI
  • Pricing plans are not all that competitive with newer offerings with other companies

Usability

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.

PaperTrail has become a basic app for me to save and see app logs. It is very easy to use, very intuitive and easy to customize. The feature I like most is that we can use it with several apps at same time.

PaperTrail's live-tailing performance is adequate and searches over the recent history load quickly. Searching over long periods of time can be extremely slow, however.

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.

I only used Logz.io for a very brief time. It seemed a bit more difficult to setup than Papertrail.

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.

PaperTrail

  • Free plan is sufficient for development and small services, and the paid plans are very cheap at low log volume. For us, the price is right with PaperTrail - though I can't speak to how their pricing compares at very high volumes.
  • Adding cloud-logging to your apps can really speed up development and debugging - the impact to engineering productivity cannot be understated.
