Nitro, Inc
Being a Nonprofit organization that produces a lot of publications on various projects, NPS allows us to create, edit and convert documents to suit the needs of our International Donor Partners and other stakeholders. In my own experience using this software, it is used less in our finance department since most of our documents originate from our accounting system and hence there is limited need for PDF management internally.

This editor is not made for reference designing pdfs, but for simple editing, it is more than efficient. Many PDF editors require a subscription for something as basic as typing a name or date. PDFEscape is perfect for this and can be done online without any software download.

Pros
Nitro, Inc
  • 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, Inc
  • 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.

  • The upload document function often gives an error message at first upload and you have to go back to the main page to upload again.
  • A mimic font and text size tool would be of benefit.
  • The whiteout tool is a white box and not a pen, which could be easier.

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

Every 1-2 years will do a check on current PDF options to include trialing the software. Have tried Foxit and several that seem to have failed in the marketplace. Over the last 4 years, I have always stuck with Nitro. Unfortunately, we still need to keep Adobe Acrobat (free version) installed to view a small percentage of some PDFs we receive.

PDFEscape is in a league of its own with price and ease of use. Competitors have not met the same criteria and I constantly go back to PDFEscape.

Return on Investment
Nitro, Inc
  • 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.
