Power PDF Standard

Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

Power PDF is used by our administrative staff for digitizing countless documents for inclusion in our electronic health records system. We can’t describe how much more efficient it makes our workflow! It’s also a big help in editing and collating documents as well, and being able to add signatures for forwarding is priceless!
  • Ease of installation.
  • User Interface is simple.
  • Compatible with numerous brands of scanner.
  • Current user interface is a bit less friendly than the UI Nuance had in place.
  • Perhaps having new scanner identification be more “plug-and-play.”
  • Time saving.
  • Reduced paper usage.
  • Speedier document transferal.
I find Power PDF to be fairly intuitive. My experience is that typical users catch on to the software’s features fairly quickly once they are aware of them.
Of course, the “Reader” version of Adobe Acrobat is far less functional than Power PDF. While Adobe offers a full-fledged PDF editing package, most all users have exposure to Reader, so when they move to Power PDF, the difference to them is like night and day!
Because while the instances of my needing support from Kofax have been rare, they have always addressed my issue promptly and to my satisfaction.

Would you buy Kofax Power PDF again?


As I said earlier, the ability to add signatures is a life-saver, and of course, adding watermarks and other graphics to existing documents has proven to be very beneficial as well.
Power PDF seems equally appropriate for high-intensity business uses as well as more casual use-case scenarios. I personally use it both in the work and home environments and am happy with the results in both places. I would think it a bit too advanced for students, at least below the high school level.
