Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Kofax Power PDF to convert documents to .pdf format. It does everything we need it to do and more, while being cost efficient. It provides fax confirmations and the ability to re-send. We are very satisfied with this program.

Pros and Cons

  • Ability to fill out .pdf documents.
  • Can edit .pdf documents.
  • Can copy and paste selected text into other documents.
  • Would like the ability to simply select and convert a selection of text without having to save it.

Return on Investment

  • Definitely cost saving.
  • Saves time with the ability to revise documents.
  • Can convert a Word document to .pdf for security purposes.


The platform is extremely user friendly and easy to use. It is cost-saving and efficient. I use it daily and have found it to be a great product and would recommend it to any small business or indivdual.

Alternatives Considered

  • Adobe Acrobat DC, Flip PDF Pro for Mac and JotForm PDF Editor
Kofax Power PDF is clearly a superior product that is a cost-effective, efficient and a perfect substitute for Adobe Acrobat, the gold standard of PDF conversion software. Other PDF conversion software lacks the features Power PDF and Adobe provide. You get what you pay for and Kofax is definitely worth the money.

Support Rating

The customer support team for Kofax is outstanding. They are probably the best technical support I have ever encountered. They should do seminars on how to treat customers, use their knowledge and quickly solve problems.
