Likelihood to Recommend

Smallpdf

Well suited: organizations that work extensively with PDF files and need to quickly and efficiently create a "good enough" product with non-technical users. Not appropriate: organizations that require extensive fine-tuning to their final product. In this case, they should spend more time and resources on more specialized tools and employee training.

XMedius is well suited for a large business with hundreds of fax numbers. Could you imagine trying to manage 1000 individual fax machines? That would be a nightmare! Instead it's all in one neat place

Pros

Smallpdf

  • One of the best things that Smallpdf does is pdf conversion both to and from pdf. It is especially great to transform pdf tables into Excel documents.
  • PDF splitting is really great since allows for cropping large files and just keep the information necessary; something that comes really handy when presenting information to your supervisors.
  • PDF merging also works wonders, it allows for mixing several different pdf documents into just one of them. It is extremely easy to set up.
  • This a really fast pdf reader, it feels really fast compared to other options that tend to feel clunky. Its workspace is super comfortable and well organized so finding a tool you need is always a simple task.

Cons

Smallpdf

  • Improve the conversion from .pdf to Excel. Sometimes when we have a lot of tables in .pdf and convert them to a spreadsheet, the fonts and tables will be messed up.
  • Being worried about uploading documents with personal data for editing or conversion.

  • Error logs include error codes, but sometimes it is hard to understand what it means. Either a shared documentation or detailed error log might help end users better to detect any issue on fax requests.

My most of the work is based on office files so I always require this software. Sometimes I need to print my survey documents so I need to convert them into PDF for actual formatting of the original document. There this software helps me a lot. And its PDF compression is the most required feature for me to help me in my office work.

1.- Because it is easy to use and each function is duly indicated so you can not go wrong.2.- Its service is fast, it takes only a few seconds to transform the files and in less than a minute it is downloaded and you can occupy it without problem. 4.-This IS online so you do not install anything, which is very useful because you can also use it from a tablet or your mobile

Fortunately we haven't required help to use the product more than once or twice. Those times I've found their support staff to be very attentive and responsive.

Alternatives Considered

Smallpdf

I used to convert my PDF files with LightPDF software. But It was slightly difficult for me to navigate on that software. The interface of that software was not very easy to understand. And compression result quality was also not satisfactory. So I selected Smallpdf for all my PDF-related work.

XMedius does faxing for a quick response from an end user where Egnyte is best suited for secure file transfer.
