Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

We use the product across the organization for managing pdfs sent to us by clients and vendors. We like the ability to convert pdfs and extract what is needed for the reporting we provide to our clients.
  • Kofax PDF does a great job with converting to Word, which really helps us get information into the reports we provide to our clients.
  • The product helps me with managing the many NDAs we receive, allowing me to quickly sign and complete the PDF forms.
  • I often use the product for pulling together multiple pdfs when preparing proposals and RFP responses.
  • Notating and redlining improvements.
  • Adding some workflow/doc management functionality would be great.
  • Handling tables upon conversion improvements would be helpful.
  • This has saved us money when compared to subscription services.
  • It saves our team time in performing their daily activities that often include pdfs.
  • It is easy to learn, and allows us to affordably provide the software to every employee as opposed to choosing just a few that "really" need it under the subscription services.
The product is intuitive and I was a bit skeptical at first of not using the competitor's product. I was pleasantly surprised that it did everything I needed and more. Once I used it, I recognized that I could roll this out to everyone without looking like we were using a "cheap" version of the competitors product that didn't have the full features. Everyone on the team loves it.
We bought it through a reseller, and the overall process was smooth.

The ability to convert pdfs to Word is invaluable to me.
The Kofax PDF product is affordable for a small business, and provides generally the same functionality as the competing products. I suggest this to small businesses that want to avoid the monthly and annual subscription fees. We have to pull together information from many pdfs into singular, summarized reports, and the product really helps us accomplish this quickly and easily. It is also a great secondary option to esignature software, and allows me to provide the equivalent of a "wet" signature without having to sign and scan.
