Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

Use for newer PDF documents that my Adobe Standard 9 will no longer read. Convert PDF documents to MS Word files. Compress large PDF documents.
  • Convert .pdf to MS Word.
  • Formtyper function.
  • Compress large .pdf files.
  • Read newer versions of .pdf documents.
  • Navigation.
  • Move some features (e.g., page size) to icon bar at top of screen.
  • Better quality compression (compression can make words unreadable.
  • Time savings.
  • Space savings on disk drive.
  • Accurate conversion of PDFs to MS Word documents.
Can be more intuitive as to its many features. I prefer the Adobe Standard interface and menus (maybe just because I am used to it). It is also very fast in doing PDF conversions, saving lots of time and effort.
Kofax can read newer versions of PDF files. Adobe does not do compression of files. Adobe also does not convert PDF to MWord files. But Adobe is more intuitive (in some ways) and the menus are easier to follow.
I have not used Kofax support.

File compression, conversion to MS Word documents, reading newer versions of PDF documents.
Not as intuitive as Adobe Standard, but a better product overall. Compression feature is great. Ability to read newer PDF documents. Conversion of PDFs to MS Word is also very good, but could do a better job of formatting on conversions.
