ActivePDF Toolkit

We have been successful in implementing batch and UI programs where we need to manage, modify and create PDF files.

Pros

Functionality - I can usually accomplish whatever I need to do

Cons

APIs are overly complicated. Frame of reference is always creating a new file. It would be nice if you could open an existing file, add or remove pages, then save as either the existing file or a new one. Instead, you have to loop through the set of pages in the exiting file and copy them to a new file. It is not very intuitive.

WebGrabber Does Business Critical

This software has been a cornerstone in allowing our business to generate the documents to send out to our customers in an easy and efficient manner with minimal IT involvement.

Pros

The software is developed in an optimal technical sense but its ease of use allows even our business users to set it up and get value out of it. This lowers total cost of maintenance while optimizing realized value.

Cons

No cons identified by IT or the business.

Effective solution with some hoops for managing security on legacy platform

This has allowed us to quickly make the PDF export of reports available to our users and have appreciated the licensing and critical update support.

Pros

The software works as expected to create PDF output for our legacy operational reporting system. We have had NO issues with stability and portability of the plug-in.

Cons

We have had to manage security for the plug in a somewhat unorthodox way on our legacy platform, but that has been more about our service that the app itself.

Great product. Still continue to improve, great technical support

Pros

The functionalities of the API. So we can programming it to tailor to our business requirements.

The latest version of the webGrabber cannot reside in the same server with the other activePDF products, such as ActivePDF server and ActivePDF docConverter.

Toolkit is great

Excellent!

Pros

This really helps us with workflows in which we can sort, manipulate incoming streams as needed. Also, calling this from within existing programs - it has expanded our post process / pre process abilities. We love it.

Cons

I wish this software had a way to reduce the size of documents we process through it.

Integrated well

Pros

We were able to quickly make it compatible with other packages we needed to build the solution

Cons

We were able to navigate through any issues we had so no real complaints. The sales staff, however, was intrusive with regard to how we were implementing, and also unclear on the pricing structure between test and production environments

Good PDF Tool

Pros

Easy to use and the output is satisfied. No complaints.

Cons

If there is more fonts and layout control of the output, it will be even better.

Great. Wish there was a lite version.

We use Toolkit in a realtime web application to fill pre-defined pdf forms with database data, then flatten the form fields. This is very simple in Toolkit. It can do so much more that we will never use, but have to pay for. I wish they had a lite form filler version at a nicer price.

Pros

Easy to use. Conforms nicely to object standards.

Cons

Price. It works great. My only issue is that it does a thousand things of which we only need three but we have to pay for the thousand.

Excellent tool for generating PDF documents from .NET apps

We have been using ActivePDF Webgrabber for over 10 years in our classical ASP, .NET based applications and we are very happy with the software, its interfaces etc. This is a great vendor to work with in case of any support issues.

Pros

Webgrabber is very easy to use; offers a simple and intuitive API for .NET; comes with simple installation for any version of windows server and licensing is so much better as it is handled at server with unlimited conversion than some competing products who require license for each developer and/or pages converted.

Cons

The two engine model (IE Engine and Native Engine) can be a little confusing. Wish they had gotten rid of IE engine and brought in the Native Engine on par with IE Engine's capabilities.
