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

We use Kofax Power PDF [(formerly Nuance Power PDF)] to handle all our pdf issues. Being in the legal field requires us to "protect" the content of many of our documents. So, from the simple task of "locking down" information by creating a pdf to utilizing Kofax Power PDF to review and edit other companies' documents, it has been a daily tool we employ.
  • Converting pdf documents to Microsoft Word format is huge
  • Adding annotations to pdfs allows us to review documents once while making the edits we need to remember later
  • Redacting documents and adding labels, such as "Exhibit A," cuts down on our work time needed to prepare documents for trial
  • Increased ease of functionality related to bookmarks
  • Improvement in the functionality of the Document Assembly tool; it can be cumbersome
  • Increased ease of personalizing the tool bars
  • Purchasing a solid product at a far superior price than a competitor just makes sense for a small business
  • Making a one-time purchase of this product is great compared to subscriptions
  • In the legal world, PDFs are so significant, and this product saves our firm so much time that we would otherwise have to spend dealing with reorganizing, rescanning, etc., because of its functionality
I had never met anyone who used it before, so there was a learning curve after I purchased it. However, once I figured out several of the basics and understood where each tool was located, the product was straightforward and easy to use. Since then, I have purchased two more licenses for my staff, and they have found it quite easy to use because I can "walk them through" how to use it.
Honestly, I have not had to engage customer support yet. So, I cannot say they have done a good or bad job. I can, however, say that the product has worked well enough that I am happy to have not had to engage customer support. For a small business, like mine, this is a good product at a good price.

Being able to edit, comment, and annotate the PDFs immediately upon receiving them is a massive benefit. While this functionality is available anytime, it is so convenient to use it right away when I first encounter new documents from clients, opposing attorneys, etc. These tools just make legal life more efficient.
I think Kofax Power PDF [(formerly Nuance Power PDF)] is great as a general tool for anyone's pdf tool. I think it works just as well--and for a better price, than its main competitor. It carries almost all the functionality that most users will ever need to engage with, so there is little to no reason to purchase a more expensive product.
