Overall Satisfaction with Kofax PaperPort (formerly Nuance)

We use Kofax PaperPort to work towards a 'paperless office'. We scan in receipts, invoices from other vendors, etc. It helps us keep everything organized and 'searchable'. We can then shred the paper copies allowing for a lot less filing cabinets. Kofax PaperPort also allows us to edit any PDF Documents, stack multiple documents, etc.
  • PDF Editing.
  • PDF combining/stacking/unstacking.
  • Adds Search-ability to documents.
  • Organization of scanned documents.
  • A little clearer indication of which document gets stacked on which when stacking documents.
  • PDF editor sometimes messes up PDF formatting.
  • Program sometimes completely crashes for no reason.
  • Reduction of paper documents.
  • Organization of documents.
  • Search-ability of documents.
  • Editing of PDF files.
  • Stacking/Unstacking PDF and other documents.
  • Kofax PaperPort has cutdown on our paper storage by ~85%.
  • Time to find a document is significantly faster than when using filing cabinets.
  • PDF Editing is built-in, allowing us to not have to pay for Adobe Acrobat.
Kofax PaperPort is considerably cheaper than Adobe Acrobat (Pro) and includes so much more than just PDF editing. It allows us to scan, organize, search, and manipulate our documents on the computer instead of in physical filing cabinets. The time saved doing document management is unbelievable.

Kofax PaperPort is great for any office that has paper documents - seriously! We have set up multiple businesses to use Kofax PaperPort to cut down their storage of paper receipts, invoices, documents, etc by nearly 90%! Their office is much better organized and they have the ability to edit PDF Documents for a lot cheaper than buying Adobe Acrobat.

  • Paper reduction.
  • filing cabinet reduction.
  • PDF editing.
  • Document combining/stacking/unstacking.
  • Search-ability of documents and PDF's.
  • We have been able to completely rid ourselves of the expense for Adobe Acrobat Pro.
  • We have been able to remove filing cabinets from our office due to the major reduction in paper necessary to keep around.
  • When a document does need to be on paper for whatever reason, we can simply reprint the document right from within Paperport. Saves on copy machine wear and tear.
PaperPort has a few quirks, but it is the only program of its kind that actually does what it claims to do. The power of it is so much more than they claim especially when it comes to trying to achieve a truly paperless office. With PDF editing built-in, it also saves considerable investment in other PDF editing programs.
