Nitro Productivity Suite

Nitro Productivity Suite is well suited for PDF viewing and editing and conversion of PDF documents to MS Word. It is also good for e-signatures and PDF post-processing, like page numbering, combining PDF documents, and inserting header and footer information on documents.Nitro is not perfect and can have issues converting complex items into MS Word, particularly with some tables and special formatted forms. It also doesn't have all the fonts and document editing features that MS Word has.

PDF Studio

For Linux users it is without a doubt the best option and the most developed so far.

Pros

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • Ability to combine files SEAMLESSLY and order them around as necessary (so underrated)
  • Signing not only for yourself but for others. Helpful for those who have been granted the authority to sign for VPs and directors
  • Much easier to use than some other PDF viewing services

  • Adding comments to particular items within a PDF.

Cons

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • The version we have which is a little older had features in odd places such as adding pages to a PDF was kind of buried.
  • Product seems to run a little slow in a Citrix environment. I believe it would run better on a dedicated PC.
  • I'd like for them to try and mimic Adobe more as that seems to be laid out a little better for end user features.

PDF Studio

  • I would like to be able to generate indexes of the documents that I am adding to a file.
  • To be able to scan a file and convert it from a PDF simply having the scan parameters.

As I answered before, the graphical interface is the best developed of the options that exist for Linux.

Nitro checks all the boxes for what we need. It is fairly priced, it allows us to read and edit PDF documents, convert PDF to MS Word and convert MS Word to PDF. It allows us to combine multiple files and do all the post processing like adding page numbers and adding headers and footers

Alternatives Considered

Nitro Productivity Suite

Nitro Productivity Suite allows a user to accomplish all of the things you would want to do to a document that Adobe does not. Much easier to find the operation you are looking for in Nitro Productivity Suite compared to Adobe

PDF Studio

The user interface is much easier to work with inside of PDF Studio as compared to Adobe Acrobat. Load time and ease of use is what made me select the product over Foxit Phantom PDF. The price for PDF Studio is extremely competitive and makes it the best alternative towards investing in Adobe or Phantom PDF.
