Can't trust other PDF vendors? Join the PDF Revolution!

Blog - Regretting Your Choice of PDF Vendors

What other PDF vendors don't want you to know and why it's time for a PDF Revolution.

You've seen the news about PDF vendors trying to control customers' content, using their private data to train AI models, and charging undisclosed cancellation fees. From scathing posts by unhappy customers to federal lawsuits—it's hard to know who you can trust.

Does it make you wonder what else is hiding in your PDF contract? The stuff that doesn't make global news?

In an era where trust and privacy are absolutely critical for everyone, particularly businesses, you deserve better.

It's time to join the PDF Revolution!

Our PDF competitors don't want you to know that you have a choice. You don't have to stay locked into expensive contracts. You don't have to settle for the same old software with mediocre support.

In fact, when we exposed the reasons why customers keep switching to Nitro with our "Say Yes to More" campaign in 2023, we received a cease and desist letter. What is it they don't want you to know?

Big monopolies don't scare us, and they shouldn't scare you.

Let's talk about it.


This all started way back in 2005 with a very ambitious goal—to revolutionize documents and empower people and companies around the world with a better way to work. And we haven't stopped.

Fast forward to today and Nitro serves millions of customers around the world who trust us and our PDF & eSign solutions. Our mission is still about empowering people. We will never stop listening to you, protecting you, and innovating from your honest feedback.

So here we are, doubling down on the fact that switching to Nitro gives you a whole lot more for your money.

1. MORE scalability and transparent pricing

Amid soaring inflation and tightening business budgets, finding a PDF vendor who respects your business needs and budget is more important than ever. Nitro’s suite of powerful PDF, eSign, and analytics tools are at an affordable, transparent price, so you can provide every employee with everything they need to be productive.

Our flexible discounts for larger deployments mean you can scale your PDF software at the pace of your organizational needs. So, if you are looking for a more cost-effective PDF solution that PCWorld named an Editors’ Choice and “the best alternative to Adobe Acrobat DC,” we're here for you.

2. MORE flexible licensing

A frequent complaint we hear about other PDF vendors is the complexity of post-purchase license management, especially for scaling organizations who need to provide more users with PDF productivity tools than initially planned.

Many customers who have switched to Nitro say our PDF pricing and licensing is simpler and easier to understand than other vendors in the market.

3. MORE support and change management

PDF tools are more important than ever in the modern workplace, but finding a PDF partner who is committed to your success isn’t always easy. Nitro places customer service at the forefront of everything we do.

To make your entire journey seamless from installation and rollout to onboarding, we provide localized Customer Success teams, training, and continued support across our product suite. We want you to be 100% confident in your software choice, which is why we offer a fully guided pilot program that enables you to test Nitro with no costs or pressure.

4. MORE user-friendly technology

Learning new software should be a breeze, not a burden. Your organization already has enough to manage without worrying whether your PDF solution will be quickly adopted throughout your organization.

Nitro’s user-friendly interface makes it easy for anyone on your team to pick up and use, eliminating frustration and downtime. We also help you understand which features employees are using most (and not using) so you can identify bottlenecks, improve processes, provide additional support resources, and facilitate training.

5. MORE sustainability wins

With today's consumers prioritizing responsible brands that champion positive environmental impact, sustainability has evolved into a critical focus for companies worldwide. To help businesses gain visibility into their operations and sustainability impact without a hefty price tag, we developed Nitro Analytics. It's a unique differentiator for our business customers and there’s nothing else like it on the market.

Showing the impact of your efforts has never been so easy with dashboards and real-time insights into:

  • Paper saved
  • Time saved
  • Productivity score
  • ROI
  • Trees saved
  • BTUs of energy saved

6. MORE stress-free workflows

It's a fast-paced world and time is money. Businesses are constantly on the hunt for ways to maximize productivity, eliminate inefficiencies, and minimize headaches. One way to ensure your users enjoy a stress-free day is by integrating your PDF & eSign tools with other critical business systems.

Nitro's user-centric design ensures workflows are streamlined and intuitive. Powerful features are designed to simplify complex tasks and automate routine processes, empowering people to focus on high-value projects. By connecting with other popular applications like Google Drive, Microsoft SharePoint, Dropbox, and Salesforce—teams can dive in and start seeing benefits from day one.

7. MORE mobility

The days of being bound to a desk five days a week are over. Busy professionals want the flexibility to work from anywhere, on different devices, at any time. This workplace transformation requires software that empowers mobility and seamless collaboration, regardless of location.

Nitro Pro Business provides a robust suite of PDF & eSign tools for Windows, Mac, and iOS devices in one subscription. Volume discounts are available and flexible licensing means you can scale your PDF software at the pace of your organizational needs.
