Nitro Productivity Suite

Nitro is well suited for the common tasks we use like include viewing and editing. The redaction tool is very useful when sharing documents with sensitive information. The downfall is we still must use Adobe Acrobat on occasion. Some PDFs will not open, view, or print properly in Nitro.

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

PDF Studio

  • Editing PDF pages easily.
  • Organizing PDF pages quickly.
  • Adding comments to particular items within a PDF.

Cons

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • The font choices could be better and more robust.
  • Sometimes converting PDF documents to MS Word has formatting problems, like with some tables.
  • Converting MS Word to PDF can be slow sometimes, meaning it is faster to save the MS Word document as a PDF than selecting the file for conversion using the Nitro PDF convert option.

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
Matthew McGinnis | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Return on Investment

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • ROI was very quick as the license costs were so low. We purchased 8 licenses versus the initial 2 we were planning on for Adobe.
  • More people were able to use the product than we initially thought due to low purchase costs.
  • We haven't had any further costs to own the product after the initial purchase. We would need to purchase new licenses if we wanted to upgrade.

PDF Studio

  • Not having to move the files to a windows PC and have to edit a PDF.
  • Have access to a simple way to generate and edit PDF files.
