Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

In our organization we receive and send many files in PDF format that either need to be reviewed, edited or converted to other usable applications. Kofax Power PDF is a key tool when we have to work with drawings related to projects and products. Kofax allows us to comment, make the required changes and add any information that may be pertaining to the matter at hand.
We also created our company's own sales catalogs and brochures, which we distribute as PDF, both through our webpage or in direct emails.
  • Comment and editing.
  • Converting many type of file formats into PDF.
  • Creating and modifying forms in PDF format.
  • Editing existing PDF files.
  • Commenting menu could use improvement for required document revisions.
  • The typewriter function should be able to adapt and have better font compatibility.
  • Cost savings in having to print documents.
  • Has enabled our team to work with electronic documents in an easier way.
  • Has facilitated the conversion of existing and new document in various MS Office formats into PDF files.
  • Helps our organization save time and cloud space with smaller size PDF documents.
We chose Kofax PDF for its in-the app features, because widely used by major enterprises and it allows you to create, edit and annotate documents.
Adobe Acrobat DC - It is a powerful program, but also comes with a hefty cost, and limitations which Kofax surpasses. Plus Kofax is a more advanced product.
Foxit PDF - It provides quite a bit of features, but to our needs, it seems crowded and you have to depend in too many cloud based features.
Soda PDF - It is quite costly and provides a great number of features, most of which I assume are not used or of value to most small businesses out there.
Self-help and online support are great. The few times we have needed to contact Customer Support we have had a good experienced and received precise information in a timely manner.

Would you buy Kofax Power PDF again?


Kofax is well suited for document revisions, highlighting and corrections. Also to insert or remove unwanted areas of a PDF document.
Another area in which Kofax excels is in adding or removing objects from existing PDF documents, especially when collaborating with other peers.
I would say is not too well suited to compress various PDF files into a single PDF file or create a portfolio, especially for sharing via email.
