    "Could be great, but isn't"

    February 20, 2014  |   By appledogx--2008

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    Nice looking document organizer.

    Cons

    This is the software that came with the Brother MFC-9970CDW for Mac for OCR. English recognition was okay, with some errors, once I got Preview to rotate the page and copy it back into this software. Spanish recognition was unusable. More errors than correct. No way to rotate a page. Ever try to scan a book sideways for OCR without a rotate feature? Website support badly organized and no user forums to help you along. Even the manual alluded to certain features I could not find, but they were features necessary to use a scanner.

    Summary

    Good document organizer, but if you need OCR, keep looking. This software is frustrating.

    "not convincing"

    February 7, 2014  |   By mainmanpeter@hotmail.com

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    broad feature set.

    Cons

    Trial version does not have OCR turned on. How can a prospective customer decide it works before shelling out? Not well thought thru.

    "Great potential, but doesn't work"

    February 20, 2013  |   By sunnyhelmsman

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    Comprehensive program which could beuseful

    Cons

    Page Viewer does not work at all.
    Absolutely no customer support.

    Summary

    Page viewer did not work on OEM version. Bought full version. Page Viewer still did not work. 2 emails to support were ignored.

    Buy this program at your peril.

    "Utterly, totally, useless piece of garbage."

    April 7, 2012  |   By mfslater

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    It wants to select a source - tells me I have an Epson (I have never had one). Tells me it cannot connect. No way to tell it I have a Brother DCP-7055. End of story. Totally useless software.

    Summary

    How can a 'software' company market software that is patently faulty? How could Brother even think of bundling it with a MF printer/scanner? Why have I had to waste an hour of my time?

    Just avoid NewSoft or whatever these cowboys call themselves.

    "Average Scan software"

    June 29, 2011  |   By Levon9

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    Nice interface
    Intuitive
    Works -most, but not all of the time

    Cons

    Cannot hold a candle to PaperPort
    Cannot scan and crop on a preview scan- no preview mode
    OCR Klugy compared to paperport, and not as accurate
    Virtually no documentation
    PDF stack and unstack is very useful
    Slow to start scanner on my machine

    Summary

    Limited feature scanning software that should be tested in trial mode before buying. Does basic things fairly well. Needs a lot of work to have the functionality of PaperPort for windows.

    "Product is useless! - At best another file viewer!"

    January 18, 2011  |   By solarchart

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    Nothing - It doesn't work!

    Cons

    I have anew IMAC computer, downloaded this product, and every time I try and scan or do anything, it says that I have no driver installed- except I do! There is absolutely no support on-line, and no customer support number

    Summary

    The product simply doesn't work, and if you have a technical problem , you just go round and round in circles on their website. I used to use Paperport on my PC, and that had a few problems, but at least it worked. Its galling when you spend the money on this product only for it to not work. I felt like I had been robbed!

    "no manual, no support; save your money"

    December 3, 2010  |   By newbreed

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    looks nice

    Cons

    This promising program suggests similar features as Paperport has under Windows but it si far from intuitive, no manual provided or to find on the web, no support.

    Summary

    Skip this program and do not spend your money on it.

    "Excellent document manager"

    June 29, 2010  |   By teressasagahi5

    Version: Presto PageManager 9 SE 9.00.08

    Pros

    Scan to PDF, merge and split PDF, supports almost all file types, convert files, can add notes to files.

    Cons

    This is only the SE version. Professional version will be release "soon".

    Summary

    Can't wait till the full or pro version of the PageManager 9. All the features are nice and the UI is designed to look and feel like the MAC OS.
