Converting a PDF to Microsoft Word is Easy with Power PDF

Historically, people have turned to PDF formats to protect their documents from being edited in word processors. This approach makes sense in a world where the data doesn’t change, but in your business, that’s not the case. Every day, you need to ensure that the information you work with is up-to-date as the circumstances change. The same goes for your user manuals, employee guidebooks, and client documents.

Microsoft Word is a practical word processing tool that gives its users a lot of power to alter and present information. Nevertheless, you can only use its power on the document formats that it uses. While you can effectively create a PDF from a Word document by printing to a PDF, converting PDFs back to Word format is another story.

The good news is that there is a tool that can help you with converting PDFs to the format you need: Kofax Power PDF. We’ve developed robust software that gives you complete control over the PDF documents you encounter. After a few uses, you’ll experience the flexible potency of Power PDF and how it can help your business succeed.
