9 Reasons Why pdfFiller is Better Than FormsCentral

Online PDF editors are helpful tools enabling some basic text editing, inserting graphic elements, signing and adding images. The advantages of this type of web-based services is that they don't require installing any kind of software into your computer. Typically, they all work the following way:

The user uploads the necessary PDF file at the platform’s website and the document opens in the editor, where the following functionally is normally enabled: adding text, inserting images, e-Signature, highlighting, adding shapes and attaching blank pages. After that, the modified document can be downloaded or saved in the most popular cloud storages - GoogleDrive or Dropbox. More advanced platforms like, PDFescape, also provide annotating tools and more options of the pages layout.

Anyways, pdfFiller is the best alternative of the available online services (for example, FormsCentral), as it serves as a complete document management platform rather than a monofunctional editing tool.
