Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

We are a litigation-focused law firm. During discovery, we receive thousands of documents--typically in PDF form--from the other side, and we have to produce thousands of pages of documents as well. Being able to OCR documents, bates number across numerous separate files, and perform true redactions are all critical features that Kofax does great.
  • Document redaction.
  • Editing PDFs (combining files, splitting, deleting pages, etc.).
  • Maintains all open PDFs in one tabbed window (and has a nice dropdown menu to quickly find the tab you are looking for).
  • If I close the last PDF I have open, Kofax fully closes, which means that the next time I open it, it takes much longer. Perhaps it could stay open in a minimized form.
I had used Nitro and Adobe before, so when I first used Nuance Power PDF, it felt pretty much seamless. I found all the features easy to use and intuitive. One of the other attorneys in my office is much less tech savvy and required help with the using the feature to combine PDFs and with redactions, but after a few times of walking him through it, he does it on his own now just fine.

Redaction, combining and splitting PDFs, converting to OCR, and adding footers/bates numbers.
If someone needs the ability to manipulate PDFs in any way--whether that means redactions, adding footers or bates numbers, combining or splitting PDFs--it is great and I would strongly recommend it. On the other hand, if someone just needs the ability to read PDFs, I would tell them to go with one of the many free options.
