Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF

I use Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance Power PDF) to access and work with all my PDF documents. I use it to assemble PDFs from various documents and extract pages from PDFs that I want to use.
  • Opens all PDFs
  • Easy to use for bookmarks, extraction, and most editing features
  • Easy to use to assemble various documents into a single PDF
  • I would like the editing tools to be more intuitive
  • Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance Power PDF) allows me to convert PDFs into editable Word documents, and that saves a lot of time.
The basic functions are easy to use and intuitive. The more advanced functions can take some digging but they all seem to be there.
Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance Power PDF) is a full featured product at a reasonable one-time price, compared to Adobe Acrobat product suite, for dealing with PDFs.
Although customer support was initially a little hard to get ahold of, once we connected, they were excellent in digging into the problem and helping me resolve it. I had a problem with printing and it took some time to work it out but they were responsive and diligent in tracking down the issue.

The ability to convert PDFs to Word documents and Word documents to PDFs is very valuable. The ability to combine, organize, and bookmark documents into PDF sets is a feature I use often.
Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance Power PDF) handles all the PDF creation, editing, and assembling tools that I need. The advanced version is essentially a full Adobe Acrobat for a much better price.

Evaluating Kofax Power PDF and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
I did on line research and discovered PowerPDF as a highly reviewed and well priced alternative to Adobe Acrobat. I did a free test and found the product easy to learn and use. I went ahead and purchased the product after that evaluation.
I would not change my process. I have been very happy with PowerPDF.
