Despite the incredible power and impact that digital technologies have, businesses often need specific or niche features that aren’t always so common. One such instance is the need to convert PDF files into the Microsoft Excel format. Excel is a powerful tool to process and manipulate data, but it needs the correct input.
Historically, that involved taking a printout and manually conducting the necessary data entry. This process is time-consuming and error-prone. If you have personal experience with it, you know how expensive it is to pay employees to produce Excel versions of data you already have.
There is a solution, however, in Kofax Power PDF. Our robust software can take virtually any file format and convert it to almost any other format you need. When you have cumbersome PDFs and need to extract the data from it while still retaining any formatting or organization of the data, there’s no better tool for your business than Power PDF.

How Power PDF Simplifies Your Work
We’re pleased with the many convenient ways in which Power PDF helps business in many industries. Consider some of the power that we help you unlock when it comes to turning PDFs into Excel spreadsheets:
Often, a scanned PDF will have far more information than you need. If you know that you only require a portion of the document or several pages, you can select only what you need, and Power PDF will precisely convert only that part of the information. This ability is profoundly helpful if you are reviewing or converting historical documents or corporate records from before the 21st century. Often, such documents have valuable information, but until now, it’s been locked away in paper files.
You can easily convert files from wherever you’re working with them. Specifically, you can right-click on the file in Windows File Explorer and convert there. Alternatively, you can open the PDF in Power PDF to select and convert only the parts of the document you’d like to turn into an Excel spreadsheet.
Let us help your business succeed in the modern business world. You need every edge you can get when it comes to data manipulation. Increase your team’s productivity without increasing payroll costs by improving efficiency. With Power PDF, you can say goodbye to time-consuming data re-entry scenarios and let your employees spend their valuable time on the more essential work you need them to complete.
