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.

Scrive

Scrive is really well suited to managing legal documents and contracts. There are many instances where it would work best, including international forms and signatures, such as point-of-sale forms for buying products. It also works for managing large amounts of forms and red tape, especially in larger groups where everyone needs access.

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

  • Electronic signatures.
  • Verification.

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.

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

Customer support was incredible, they helped when I had one question about a bug with the archiving function. They got it sorted out, helped me understand what I did wrong, and even released a patch months later to prevent future users from falling into the same trap. I don't think there even was a language barrier, despite Scrive being a Swedish company.

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

Scrive

Honestly, I don't know of any other products or services that work similarly to Scrive. My only other thought would be to manually track and manage forms through cloud storage, with perhaps Adobe's electronic signature service. However, that can be tricky to set up, and I don't think I even know how to include one on a PDF.

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.

Scrive

  • Excellent archiving.
  • Digital signatures made data collection easy.
