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.

It is really an intuitive to use and collaborative tool that can be helpful within an organization to create agreements and allow various kinds of reviews simultaneously. This ensures time is saved and even one can see the status of the document at any time and take actions accordingly. It sends out automatic reminder mails to users who haven't signed and provide feature for people to either accept or reject and not sign a document.

Pros
Nitro, Inc
  • Ability to combine files SEAMLESSLY and order them around as necessary (so underrated)

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.

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.

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.

It is more intuitive and does not require its users to get any formal training to use the product. It allows automatic follow-ups with users who use the product. It can be deployed on all operating system and is compatible with most of the devices including mobile phone, laptop or personal computer.

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.
