"Best Document Manager, Editor & Scanning Tool"

What do you like best?

I have used Paperport since its inception through all of its ownership changes. I use an earlier version which has more options that have since been removed. It is such a versatile software program that it is really more like a software suite than a single standalone.

I scan all my law practice and personal documents and organize them using Paperport's robust folder structure manager. You can intuitively view all files in the folder as live thumbnails of every file type, and preview images as well. They can quickly be organized by standard category types such as most recent, alpha, etc.

You can edit pdfs, almost any image file, and also instantly convert almost any software file to another format from within Paperport (you are really just initiating the conversion here by adding all of your software programs to its "Send To" dialog Bar. It's built-in image editor does almost anything I could need for everyday use, and I otherwise use Photoshop for only more complex image editing.

Paperport's scan manger is also my favorite and i have been using it since the late 1990s. I always use the advanced scan manager so that i can customize each scan whether by flatbed or document feeder, and whether color image, black &white pdf, or the myriad of other settings that you can personalize as your favorites. It has worked with every printer or scanner I have ever owned, including Lexmark, HP, etc.

But the star of the software in my opinion is the PDF Viewer Plus software included in this bundle. The editing capabilities of PDF Viewer Plus is astounding and is valuable in and of itself as standalone software. I can so easily edit, convert, and manipulate files that it is scary. I don't even use Acrobat anymore. The most important feature that I use is to (legally) insert client signatures into pdfs from image files that i created from scans, utilizing the Stamp feature. Also has great notation, annotation, and comment features.

There is also a Paperport Anywhere sync feature worth mentiooning.

I cannot impress upon you enough how this is one of my top 4 can't-live-without software programs.

What do you dislike?

The Search feature could be more effective but is still pretty good. It's "All-In-One" search is of course dependent upon the documents that are able to be recognized by its built-in OCR function.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software serves as my main document manager and organizer for my boutique law practice, my professional organizations that i run, as well as for my personal life.

I am utilizing this software instead of more costly law practice software, or alternate options to manage and organize folders, files, and their contents.

"Love the program but needs updating!"

What do you like best?

I have used Paperport for many years and it has been my go to for document storage and management. I love the simplicity of the software and and the ability to drag and drop documents to move and stack.

What do you dislike?

The top dislike I have with Paperport is that it has been stuck on version 14 for years. It needs to be updated badly to stay relevant. Also it would help if it had better network support,

Recommendations to others considering the product

The program is good, just don't know if there is a future for this great program or not.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Paperport everyday to scan in, and manage all of my paperwork, and documents so that I don't have to keep piles of papers.

"Most Features are an assett, but has a few faults"

What do you like best?

That a pdf document can be edited to remove or add items. Also like that several folders can be created within paperport to manage projects and tasks accordingly

What do you dislike?

If too much in folders, the program crashes. It is not been to have too much stored/folder system

Recommendations to others considering the product

The cost of the software is very affordable. But if want something more reliable, you may want to look at other options if willing to pay a higher price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Works great when sending out invoices or documents to insured that need to be cleaned up so codes and symbols can be removed and plain language added so the customer can understand what they are reading.

"Used to be good not so much anymore"

What do you like best?

The 12 ond was a great software that I used to edit my pdf files.

What do you dislike?

The 14 is a nightmare, it was hard to install, keeps crashing and I keep loosing pages in pdf files.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get the Paperport 12 that actually worked. Don’t update to the 14.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It used to solve problems well in terms of editing pdf’s. No benefits anymore really after I updated the software, only if I spend a lot of exta time and efforts will I get the work done.
