Is Your Enterprise Looking for an Adobe® Acrobat® Alternative?


Learn how five top global organizations found success with our smarter, more affordable document productivity solutions.

As more and more companies move toward a digital workplace, the question is no longer whether or not to go paperless, it’s which enterprise software solutions — specifically document productivity solutions — can help you and your users get there most effectively.

Creating a successful digital workplace means finding a technology partner who delivers critical document productivity tools to every user across the organization — not to mention one fully committed to the success of your entire operation.

Historically, doing so has been difficult due to cost-prohibitive legacy solutions like Adobe® Acrobat®, which has been the default PDF editing software for many organizations. However, PDF is actually an open standard, which paved the way for Nitro to provide a better, more cost-effective Adobe Acrobat alternative for efficient workflows.

Why these five enterprises switched to Nitro

Here’s how five top global organizations found success with our smarter, more affordable document productivity solutions:

1. T-Mobile Austria

T-Mobile Austria is the second largest telecommunications company in the country. The T-Mobile team came to Nitro in search of a more powerful and streamlined solution. The company needed enterprise software that could replace Adobe Acrobat, offer a modern and easy-to-use interface, prioritize compliance, and boost productivity for T-Mobile’s 1,300 employees.

Nitro partnered with T-Mobile Austria to replace legacy systems, increase productivity, and streamline change management with an Adobe Acrobat alternative. Some of the perks of switching to Nitro’s enterprise software included a short learning curve, expert support, and seamless integration.

2. Assurance

Assurance, one of the largest independent insurance brokerages in the U.S, was searching for a “good, reliable alternative to Adobe®” for its organization. Nearly every workflow at Assurance involves a PDF—policies, contracts, and other insurance paperwork.

The team had been using Adobe to edit and manipulate documents, but scaling with the company became cost prohibitive. Nitro focused on delivering transparent, unmatched customer service and a cost structure that saved Assurance more than $100,000.

As a result of the partnership, Assurance deployed a much-needed document productivity solution organization-wide at a cost that aligned with its budget. Learn more about the partnership here.

3. Leonardo DRS

Like many modern companies, U.S. defense contractor Leonardo DRS made the decision to centralize its IT operations, services, tools, and processes across its 40-plus locations in North America and the UK. Among those standardizations was the goal of finding a single PDF enterprise solution for its knowledge workers.

Before approaching Nitro, various Leonardo DRS offices had purchased their own PDF software, making technology management difficult to support and maintain — not to mention creating security and noncompliance risks. Thus, the company decided it needed one solid, integrated enterprise software solution deployed across the entire organization.

With simplified and streamlined licensing and a familiar Microsoft® Office-like interface, Nitro PDF Pro allowed the Leonardo DRS team to achieve more efficient workflows and maximum productivity. Learn more about Leonardo DRS’s switch to Nitro PDF Pro here.

4. Continental

Leading automotive manufacturer Continental was at a crossroads nearly a decade ago. Faced with a limited deployment of Adobe® Acrobat® and an inability to standardize because of its high cost per license, the company needed a better PDF productivity tool for its more than 200,000 workers.

In seeking an Adobe Acrobat alternative, Continental also needed the solution to scale, and be easy to implement and maintain for both the IT team and employees. .

With an easy deployment and increased productivity, Nitro PDF Pro allowed Continental to achieve digital transformation at the right price with a trusted enterprise software partner. As a result, Continental has reduced its paper usage and rolled out Nitro PDF Pro to tens of thousands of employees around the globe.

5. McConnell Dowell

In fall 2020, Victoria, Australia-based construction company McConnell Dowell needed a way to cut the exorbitant licensing fees and reduce printing and photocopying costs. With more than 2,500 employees across the globe, McConnell Dowell sought enterprise software that would enhance collaboration while remaining cost effective.

Nitro worked with McConnell Dowell to phase the implementation, rolling out more than 1,000 licenses to teams across Southeast Asia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, and Australia. In its first year working with Nitro, the company is projected to save up to 50%.
