Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

I no longer use Kofax Power PDF. It was such a dramatic (and for me, unnecessary) change from the Nuance version, that I uninstalled the Kofax and re-installed the Nuance. I'm very happy now. Sometimes new-fangled things don't always improve our lives! :-)
  • I don't remember being particularly impressed with anything about the product.
  • Too many features that are of no use to a user like me, and some of the features I need seem to have disappeared. It just wasn't worth the hassle.
  • There was a negative effect as I tried to work the learning curve, going from Nuance to Kofax. In the end, it made my work take longer, and thus I got nothing from the change.
Sorry, I found it very difficult to use; I liked Nuance MUCH better, and am very happy to have returned to it.
I tried Kofax Power PDF because I assumed that the "next generation" of the product would be a big improvement; it was not for me.
I never sought support.

Do you think Kofax Power PDF delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Kofax Power PDF's feature set?


Did Kofax Power PDF live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Kofax Power PDF go as expected?


Would you buy Kofax Power PDF again?


None. I love the Nuance version, because it makes my editing very easy, without a million choices to figure out (hey, what can I say - I'm an old guy who can't take too much change!).
I am a sole proprietor, who does all of the PDF-related work on my own. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles - just something that's easy to use and supports my requirements.
