Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

I have used the Nuance PDF product for over ten years, and find that the Kofax version has kept all of the features that I need in a PDF program. We primarily use Kofax PDF to make fillable forms from standard PDFs, as well as editing and marking up files.
  • Rather than printing forms and filling them out, I make them 'fillable' and type in the information. This saves time avoids errors due to poor handwriting.
  • Helps our office be more 'paperless'.
  • Allows for easier file sharing with clients and companies we do business with.
  • The program loads slowly - quicker loading time would be helpful.
  • Occasional crashes/freeze ups. More stability would be helpful.
  • Time saving.
  • Efficiency.
  • Organization improvements.
I have found the interface to be very intuitive. The menu ribbon is easy to navigate, and the features, though powerful, are easy to master with just a bit of experimentation. I have found the best way to learn is to dive right in and see what it can do!
I was a Nuance user for many years and when it came time to upgrade I wanted to stay with something that I knew met our needs. I looked into more expensive programs such as Adobe, but found what I already knew - Kofax PDF does what the others do for a significant savings.
I have, fortunately, not had the need to contact customer support. Because the program is so user friendly and easy to understand the learning curve is very small. And the small issues I've had such as program stability and slow loading times are so minor and infrequent it hasn't been necessary to contact them.

Form filling and the ability to add my own images are the most powerful features. I have also used the program to design my own PDF forms. Recently a non-profit I volunteer with needed a scholarship application to email to candidates. Using the Kofax PDF software I was able to create exactly what we needed, including the organizations logo, in a matter of a few minutes.
Best for creating fillable forms that can be shared with colleagues or clients. It's a benefit that the 'filled' forms can be saved with the completed information, so you can come back to your work without having to start over each time, or sent to a colleague to be completed making collaboration a lot easier.
