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 Xchange Viewer and Editor

If you'd like to switch from Adobe to a less expensive and more robust solution, you can choose PDF X Change.It does everything other expensive solutions do. 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

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

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.

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.

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

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

Return on Investment

Nitro Productivity Suite

  • Being able to publish beautiful PDF eBooks has given my freelance automotive writing business the edge needed to stand out from the competition.
  • Currently, Nitro is a one-time-purchase software package, better for my business needs than subscription models offered by the competition.
