"Solid pdf application"

The best part of ABBYY FineReader is how when you import a scanned document to OCR, you can see it scanning before your eyes. It looks really cool!

“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.
