Overall Satisfaction with FoxitPhantom PDF

FoxitPhantom PDF is being used by part of the organization. Some of the organization uses Foxit and some of the organization uses [Adobe]. I've used both and I would say FoxitPhantom PDF is a good alternative for the organizations that need to be more price-conscious. There are a lot of the features that are needed through FoxitPhantom such as digital signatures, editing PDF documents, and making fillable forms.
  • Competitive pricing.
  • Good for encrypting, and signing PDFs for confidential documents.
  • Able to manipulate PDF files and organize the pages as needed (i.e. merging or splitting documents).
  • If the organization uses both Adobe and FoxitPhantom there could be some compatibility issues (especially with digital signatures).
  • Positive impact on our overall business objectives. As an organization we have looked to cut costs and implementing FoxitPhantom has saved money without losing the needed functionalities.
  • The only negative would be not having the whole organization using 1 PDF software.
  • People who have been used to using Adobe may resist with having to switch to Foxit.
FoxitPhantom contains all the functionalities that you want from Adobe such as creating PDFs, editing PDFs, sharing PDFs, encrypting PDFs, and being a cheaper alternative. The user interface is very intuitive and matches up well with other common software like Microsoft Word (the ribbon navigation panel). Support for FoxitPhatom is good as well.
I haven't personally had interaction with the customer support from FoxitPhantom, however based on conversations I have had with members in the organization, I was given positive feedback. Their website has a lot of information and tutorials. If you need to contact them, they are quick to respond. User manuals are readily available.

FoxitPhantom is cost effective for businesses and is very easy to use and learn. The interface is very user-friendly and similar to many navigation panes such as Microsoft Word. For document security, Foxit works great, with digital signatures, password protection and encryption. All key features available in Adobe are available with Foxit.
