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.

We are using it to add some additional information on scanned PDF files and Sign them and it does it in a simple and easy way. You can use to combine multiple files into one, creating PDF from different resources.

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.

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.

It's easy to use, making it very efficient for us as we do not have to train additional people on how to use this software. It opens up documents quickly and saves quickly as well. Overall the usability is not an issue for us at all. It is also extremely easy to integrate it with other PDF programs.

Performance wise, PDF Xchange Viewer and Editor is flawless. It runs fast, and I haven't experienced any immediately crashing. The reports save quickly, and the document size is never an issue. It saves into a regular PDF, and we're able to open it on any other program or computer. All text boxes, features, and headers show up flawlessly on other programs.

Support Rating

Kofax Power PDF 7.5

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.

The application had no issues (we did not contact support) and that's why I give a 10.

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.
