Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

We use Kofax Power PDF every day in our Professional Services Tax & Business Advisory to open, review, modify, and publish PDF documents. I especially like the PDF editing tools with Power PDF and speed of opening and reviewing documents. Quite often we have a need to convert a PDF to another format like Word and Power PDF does a great job with the conversion, back and forth. Also, the security features of Power PDF are very handy in these times where encryption security is of paramount importance for our most sensitive financial documents. The value that you get for the small investment in the software can't be beat!
  • Very fast software to process our documents.
  • Extremely good value for our investment in document processing software.
  • The editing and security features and functions that we need to have on hand everyday working with our documents.
  • The UI is as familiar as using Microsoft Offices products so very low learning curve.
  • More selection of stamps and clipart since I like to liven my documents up sometimes.
  • I would like to see more "form" creation and editing tools.
  • Ability to use a stylist pen for creating and editing documents with write anywhere capability.
  • Mobile and tablet options (Android).
  • We save at least 20% of of our time in processing documents faster using Power PDF since it has all the tools we use daily built right into the software.
  • I think that Power PDF is one of our most valued software packages in our tech stack.
  • We rely on it daily in our business and have never had an issue with compatibility.
As I said in an answer question the UI is so similar to that of Microsoft Office tools that we use daily and it has that same familiarity across our entire office products software suite. Setup and customization is very easy for every user in our company.
We did use Adobe Acrobat (both free versions and paid) in the past but found it to be clunky and expensive to get the functionality we needed whereas Power PDF has tools built right in without having to pay more for add-ons.

We use Acronis True Image as our trusted backup and restore solution on all our standalone and networked PC(s).
When ever I have had a customer product support or sales question Kofax is easy to reach and deal with for our business needs.

Did implementation of Kofax Power PDF go as expected?


Would you buy Kofax Power PDF again?


I think that we use the editing tools the most and they function almost as easily as using Microsoft Word. The second most functionality that we use quite often are the security and document signing tools since we work with a lot of sensitive financial documents it is essential to us in our workflow and document management.
Kofax Power PDF is well suited to replace Abode products wherever you use them in both functionality and cost of ownership. It is our number one go to selection of software to use with our documents.

Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance) Training

We watched the training videos and tested out the features and functionality side by side. Some features are not used on a regular basis is it is convenient to go back and review training on that particular functionality when needed.
Figuring out how to use a feature and function of Power PDF is relatively easy if you are familiar with Microsoft Office and it ribbon layout and toolbar setup.
