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.

WinZip

It is well suited to environments that are using multiple platforms, or operating systems. The compatibility of Winzip with various OS's is really good. It is also well suited for organizations that are looking for something that is easy to use from an end-user perspective and doesn't really require training to use.It is less suited for organizations that need/want a low/no-cost compression solution. This would not be Winzip, as they don't offer any "free" options, only paid one. It is also less suited for environments that need to have a solution that will create the smallest size compression file(s) possible. There are some other competitors on the market that is a bit better than Winzip at doing this.

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 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.

WinZip

  • Nothing comes to mind, I've not seen any glaring omissions from current product

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

I haven't had to use any of the support channels to use the program, as it is very intuitive and easy to use for the first time using it. They do have a number of support options available via their sites, such as KB articles, FAQ, and the option to submit an online support request. What doesn't seem to be available is phone number for users to call in for support. This can be frustrating for users that need immediate help, as it appears the quickest turnaround time if you are submitting an online request is 1 day.

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

WinZip

I recommend using 7-Zip because the interface is simple and it does not install other tasks and notifications.

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.

WinZip

  • Winzip is not our standard corporate zip app.
  • It's causing additional troubleshooting.
  • Additional hands-on time for tech support personnel that are trained in 7zip.
