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

It's being used by a select number of our staff, around 7 who deal with document and data management most often. It has served as a serious upgrade from Adobe for 2 primary reasons. For one, it allows for multiple PDFs to be opened within one window. And two, it has excellent text recognition features and can almost seamlessly convert PDFs to Word or Excel. It's been a lot of help for reviewing financial statements.
  • Organized storage for multiple PDFs at one time.
  • Excellent text recognition capabilities.
  • Easy and robust set of editing tools.
  • The ability to adjust key shortcuts would be helpful (for instance using the arrow keys to switch pages as opposed to ctrl + pg down).
  • Switching between PDFs without a mouse is also a bit of a hassle.
  • Using Adobe and Kofax between the team can present some issues, however, we should probably switch the full team to Kofax.
It's very easy to use. It helps that it has the traditional Windows pane and format. It's much more intuitive than other pdf reading programs such as Adobe.
The only gripe is there are fewer people using Kofax so most online forms are limited in scope and quantity of users.

The convert feature is wonderful for transferring PDFs to Excel or Word.
It's well suited for multiple PDF storage and not having to have 5 PDF windows open at one time. It is also incredibly helpful for working through large PDF files due to its text recognition feature. And it's incredibly helpful for transferring files to Excel or Word.
