Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

Kofax is used across the board in all aspects of the business. Many documents that are downloaded are in a rough PDF format. Kofax makes it simple to edit or change to the file to an Office format. Clients also send documents in multiple scanned documents, Kofax allows them to be assembled into a singular document. The opposite is also true, many clients send multiple documents in a single scanned format, Kofax easily separates the document into logical, standalone documents.
  • Allows for editing of PDFs.
  • Allows user to change PDF to any Office product.
  • Easily separates a single PDF document into multiples.
  • Combines multiple PDFs into a single document.
  • Creates security against plagiarism
  • When editing forms, the original document format is not always maintained.
  • There is a learning curve.
  • It can be difficult to add a fillable text box to a document.
  • Time saving is amazing.
  • The cost has been recovered numerous times in allowing for editing of PDF.
  • The amount of effort to use the product is minimal.
I am self taught. This has allowed me to become a proficient user without any formal training. I have recommended Kofax to friends, family, and colleagues alike.
  • AspenONE Asset Performance Management (APM)
Kofax came highly recommended, I tested it and purchased immediately.
I needed assistance once. The person that provided the support was well informed, polite yet friendly and had a superior knowledge of how to use the product. They imparted the required advise quickly and confidently without be assuming or condescending in any manner. My call was answered quickly and was given importance.

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
The features that have been most useful for me include: Allowing for the editing of PDF documents. Changing PDF to Office 365 documents. Separating large documents into smaller ones. Combing multiple documents into a single document. Easily allows for the above to be perfected, while my clients are not aware of any changes made. In addition when a Kofax document is shared with a client, it appears to be a regular PDF.
Kofax allows for easy storage and editing of PDF documents. Kofax will change PDFs to Excel, Word, and PowerPoint in an easy and accurate process. This allows for editing and subsequent saving to PDF for client distribution. It delivers a clean, professional work product that clients that do not have Kofax see in Acrobat format. The client is not aware that the PDF has been edited.
