Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance Power PDF)

I have tried many different PDF programs from free to subscription type and have found Kofax Power PDF the best for day to day PDF handling. Easy to use for the novice with the tools available for more advanced users. Most of the use comes from filling in forms or creating PDF documents to share.
  • Ease of use
  • Document assembly
  • Conversion to other platforms
  • Thumbnail view
  • Mark up
  • Scaling drawings
  • Highlighting
  • The cost is great, being a one time purchase.
  • Great savings over annual subscriptions.
  • Tried Free one, all of them are worthless, no wonder they are free.
This is very important, for I get new people in all the time. With Kofax, I don't need to spend a great time training, most of the tools are intuitive and very self-explanatory. Unlike another program I use that requires many hours of training and even after the training is still very difficult to navigate. You have none of this with the Kofax.
Beats them all hands down. The rest of them lack tools, are difficult to navigate, do not have the thumbnail viewer that I find very important. I keep between 20 and 50 PDF's on my desktop at any time, to be able to glance and find the one I need without reading the file name or having to open each one is a great time saver.
I had an issue with the pdf previewer on one of my computers, my office desktop was working but my traveling laptop was not. Now with Covid and spending so much time on the laptop, it was important to get the viewer working. The support team worked the problem with me and in the end, like always it was an easy fix, it was just hidden so well it took us some time to find it. They never gave up or blamed other software for the glitch. It was a great relief.

I recommend it in day to day PDF use for forms, specification sheets, and the like. I use another product (Bluebeam) for PDFs that require scaling, measurements, and collaboration with others in the field. The Kofax is perfect for what it does, I have it installed as the standard PDF tool with all of the inside salespeople.
