Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

Kofax has been a great upgrade over the standard PDF and the conversion feature has been excellent. I take my Word documents for filing and easily convert it to a pdf format.
  • Conversion back to Word is excellent.
  • Conversion of fillable documents.
  • Ease of use for all governmental filings.
  • Sometimes when I open a document it assumes I want to print it, the auto print function is a bit annoying.
  • When converting an Excel sheet the conversion sometimes fails to pick up some calculations.
  • The graphic conversion could use some fine tuning but generally pretty good.
  • Time savings for filings, seamless.
  • Cost savings over competitors.
  • Being able to put it on both my home and office computer was the clincher.
It is very easy to use and meets or exceeds all my expectations. The setup was easy and foolproof. It immediately became my only PDF converter and default for all things PDF. I can say only good things about the product.
The only competitor I looked at was HotDocs, which I also use, but only because it is integrated into software I use. As a standalone product, Kofax is heads and tails above the other products.
I only contacted support one time and was provided excellent service and they completely resolved my problem in less than 10 min, also I was not put on hold at all.

The conversion features have been most helpful by far.
It has worked for everything I have asked it to do. It is very well suited for filing of documents with courts and governmental organizations. It is also excellent for providing clients converted Word documents so they cannot be altered.

Using Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

3 - I have myself, attorney, my paralegal and my part time law clerk
3 - The same three. Because of its ease of use there is no "in-house" support. Each can utilize its functions independently for filing with courts, communicating with clients and opposing counsel or for archiving documents.
  • Filing with courts. Kofax is very easy to use and most courts require documents to be filed to be in a pdf format
  • Preserving files. When my clients execute estate planning documents I use Kofax to preserve the documents and send them to third parties, such as doctors for Health Care power of attorney.
  • In almost all cases final versions of settlement agreements are put in pdf format to ensure they are not modified before signature
  • My law clerk is able to scan documents on his phone and convert them to Kofax in the office which has saved lots of time and cleaned up files. I don't know how he does it but it has prevented lots of duplicates from being placed in the e-file making it easier to search
It is an excellent product that provides the utility we need.
