Pros: We have many machine learning models which requires ton of data. We get data in pdf and pdftables convert those tables into csv format which can be directly put in our models. It also converts them to xml files which we read in our application code for client. We are pretty happy.

Cons: Not many features other than basic pdf converting. Messes up sometimes in colored pdfs. Hope to have some api to do bulk processing in parallel.

Hi Ankush,

Thank you for the review, we're glad you are happy with our product. We do infact have an API available (cloud and on-premises) which will enable you to do bulk processing: https://pdftables.com/pdf-to-excel-api.

Regarding the coloured PDFs - PDFTables does not pull through formatting upon conversion. We focus on extracting the tabular data efficiently and accurately.

Pros: This is the best definition of software which does what it says. You have a table in pdf, you have tried it copying in word or excel and you can't do it properly. PDF table makes it breeze with just 1 click it converts pdf to my excel file using some magic. I don't know how it works but it works crazy good and fast, love it.

Cons: Obviously like any other software there is no 100% success. Sometimes it misses some blocks. And maybe add some more features.

Pros: I'm a bookkeeper and from time to time, I need to work with a PDF of a bank statement and get that data into Quickbooks. I researched a number of programs that "read" a bank statement and turn that information into an editable .CSV (which can then be imported into QB). Some of the programs did way more than I needed, some were hundreds of dollars (perhaps worth the money if you need all of the features), and some required a less than intuitive set-up on my part. When I found PDF Tables, and tried a few statements for free, I was amazed at how easy, fast, and accurate their conversion was. Any of these programs require you to edit the .CSV after conversion, but PDF Tables was very accurate and the time I spent editing after conversion was minimal. Additionally, their pricing was affordable and scalable. Great product!

Cons: So far, I haven't come across anything that I dis-like. I've run about 108 pages through their program and haven't experienced any glitches or problems.

Overall: A real time and money saver! It makes working with a PDF bank statement much less of a headache than it would otherwise be.

Pros: I really like that PDF Table helped me a lot in converting many of my PDF docs that have a lot of tables into excel sheet without any errors at all. Sometimes I receive a lot of PDF docs from professors at school that has a lot of data in the form of tables and this was frustrating me all the time because I will have to copy every single cluster to a new excel sheet and type new formulas. But now I am so great that I don't have to do this again.

PDF Tables is a great software that saves a lot of effort and time.

Cons: There is nothing that I dislike about this program. I just hope if the can make some discounts for students.

Overall: So far it has been a great experience using PDF tables. I highly recommend it.
