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.

Smallpdf

As per my knowledge and experience, Small PDF is well suited when we want to convert the large and bulk processing on the images to convert them into a single file and share. I found it well suited for college students because daily they scan multiple images and merge them to send as a single assignment file. Smallpdf has the future in the education field. Sometimes it is less appropriate for the people who want to share official documents by converting them into pdf without a watermark. I personally really like the Small PDF, it really helped reduce the difficulty of sending files, and photos to others.

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
Ariel Dunay | TrustRadius Reviewer

Smallpdf

  • It's PDF editing tool suite is extremely comprehensive.
  • Drag & Drop functionality and intuitive user interface means non-technical users can easily use most of its features.
  • It's online-first design avoids typical problems of depending on one specific computer for specific tasks.

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.

Smallpdf

  • It has everything I'm not sure what I will say. E-sign, Share, convert. You can give an option in upload priorities features which I can see later.
  • Background remover thing also you can add in it. So I can remove the unnecessary thing from an image.
  • You can add a chatbot for help.

I give this rating to Smallpdf because it comes with a large array of tools and gadgets. It allows not only pdf reading but also mixing, splitting, conversion to and from pdf, pdf compression or protecting. It is really complete and it works excellent compared to other much more expensive alternatives in the market.

The output quality of the results produced by this software is very good. In some of the situations where the size of the files are big, this software takes time to upload the files but the download speed is quite good and the quality of the documents are satisfactory. PDF compression results are amazing in this software. It reduces the size without compromising on quality.

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

Everything is so simple and works so well, you shouldn't need support, but on the one occasion in several years that I needed it, support was quick and courteous.

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

Smallpdf

I think that Smallpdf stacks up against its competitors in terms of easiness of use. The tool is very user-friendly, every feature is communicated in an efficient way and very simple to user so the user doesn't have to be particularly good at using software. Its features are superficial when compared to Acrobat but easiest to use for sure.

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.

  • It has definitely increased efficiency. Lower paid employees can complete a simple task with Smallpdf rather than having a higher paid employee use their time to do it differently.
  • Smallpdf decreases the customer-response time. Being able to send over the proper sized file quickly makes us look great!
