With FineReader PDF we were able to convert the same document to Excel in under 5 minutes! The time we are saving more than compensates for the price of the software. The ROI was immediate!"

“Much better replacement for Adobe Acrobat DC”

Best OCR (including excellent automatically inserted headings), enormous flexibiility to make all kinds of edits, and comparison of two pdf documents works much better than Acrobat's version.

"Great, efficient, necessity."

ABBYY makes the task of manually entering information from PDF to excel a thing of the past. It has saved so much time, and I highly recommend for any organization that needs to convert from PDF to excel often.

"An all-in-one software for reading or editing PDF files"

ABBYY has a wide variety of functions for handling PDF files and it is what makes it really interesting. This editor allows you to create and export PDF files. Another characteristic that seems very convenient to me is its OCR function, which recognizes text in documents. Conversion options are also available for MS-Word, Excel or other files.
