Power PDF Advanced
Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)
I use Kofax Power PDF Advanced for its full suite of tools. It is used both for editing and publishing technical documents and drawings in PDF format. I like it for its ease of use, security, and flexibility. As a very small business of one, I have to do it all; Kofax Power PDF makes my job easier while presenting a very professional appearance at a very affordable price.
- Secure, digitally signed documents.
- Mark-ups and comments.
- Widely accepted electronic documents.
- User friendly interface.
- Help could always be better, more detailed explanations, but that could be said of any software. Make more phone help available where I can actually talk to someone.
- Where are the pre-made "stamps" such as "Confidential" or "Caution"?
- I don't really have many complaints! It's works well for me!
I have not had need of customer service other than when I originally made the purchase. Doesn't that tell the whole story?

Using Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)
1 - I am a company of 1; I have to be able to preform all functions a company needs. I use Power PDF for technical documentation primarily, but it is also used everywhere that I need a reliable, secure document format.

I would very likely continue to update and use Power PDF because I am familiar with it, it has a reasonable price, and continues to provide value for the price. I work in a very dynamic field where I must continually adapt; It's beneficial to use a product that remains consistant in its user interface while improving its features.
Evaluating Kofax Power PDF and Competitors
Yes - Power PDF evolved from Nuance to Kofax and I've been using it for quite a while. However, I abandoned use of its Adobe counterpart because they are too expensive and they like to radically change their user interface often without any real improvement of their features.
- Product Features
- Product Usability
- Prior Experience with the Product
The single most important factor in my choice is consistency. Second to that would be reliability.
Kofax Power PDF Implementation
Change management was minimal - A product can remain great when absorbed by company other than its creator. I wish it were true in al cases.
Kofax Power PDF Support
No. Nor would I. A quality product supports itself. If I need to purchase premium support, I need to find a better product.
