I purchased this product back in 2005 when I was working out of town and needed an easy pdf software program. Since it was such a user friendly product, the fact that the customer service was lacking did not make a big difference. Fast forward to April 2011 when I purchased the Nitro PDF Professional with OCR as an upgrade. Trying to contact someone to help get this program activated when I had to replace my computer was nearly impossible but I was finally able to contact someone. In October 2012, my computer became non-functional and I tried contacting the company to get them to issue me a new key to activate the product on my new computer. I was able to reach a "person" one time and was promised that someone would contact me and/or I would receive a license key in my email. Here it is mid-January 2013 and I have yet to hear from anyone even though I have continued to try and reach them via phone and Facebook. 

If you are looking for a product that is easy to use, this is it. If you are looking for good customer service, this is not the company to do business with. If you are in need of this on a regular basis, there is no doubt you'll have a bug or two that needs to be worked out and you will have to wait for customer service responses if you get them at all. I would advise anyone looking for a pdf program to pay a little extra and go with a reputable company like Adobe. I learned my lesson the hard way.

After making a complaint on here, I received a call from Stephanie with Nitro Pdf, Inc. and she was apologetic and explained that she wasn't sure what happened with my request but advised that I submit a support ticket on their website versus calling them so that doesn't happen again. She handled my problem promptly and I am pleased with the outcome and will continue to use their product. This issue has now been resolved.

Hi Stephanie, 

Thank you for reaching out to me so promptly. I only wish the reps that I spoken with previously had done the same and I am sorry that it had to come to this to get any response. In any event, I did receive your email and just responded. I hope that we are able to get this issue resolved as soon as possible. 

Thank you again.
