Overall Satisfaction with Foxit PDF SDK

Currently, all of our papers are saved as PDFs using Foxit PhantomPDF. So far, we've gotten rid of more than 30 file cabinets. We also have a scan-and-shred mechanism in place, which scans and shreds all new documents as soon as they arrive (or almost all of them). Finally, we compress all of our huge files using the PDF optimizer.
  • Reducing the size of a PDF
  • Making one PDF out of a bunch of smaller ones
  • Creating a PDF file and then printing it
  • Their PDF editing is clunky, and creating from scratch is tedious
  • When it crashes, the crash reporting tool is broken
  • On a busy page, Edit Text sometimes struggle to grab the proper text
  • By exporting to Foxit and emailing, we were able to reduce our sent AR by nearly 60%.
  • In order to make way for new workstations, we scanned old documents into a whole room
I can get the same results at a quarter of the cost with Foxit PhantomPDF, and I'm more comfortable without having Adobe products on my PC. Despite their identical feature sets, Foxit is both more user-friendly and simpler for new staff to learn. I've been using Adobe for a long time, and I always saw it as a necessary evil.

It's ideal for small businesses trying to go paperless. It's inexpensive, simple to use, and provides a smooth conversion process. In my opinion, it's also a good option for firms who only want to convert their incoming and outgoing mail to attachments. This is where we began, and everything functioned perfectly from the get-go. Some of these characteristics may already exist in a larger system, therefore I don't think they'd be necessary for huge corporations.
