ABBYY FineReader

It works exceptionally well for digitizing paper and scanned documents for storage and simple retrieval mainly thanks to OCR technology, which greatly simplifies the process. If there is a need for protection and/or signing scanned documents than ABBYY FineReader has all the necessary features implemented. It may not be the best choice for individuals, where advanced functionalities are not really needed.

Adobe Experience Manager Forms

Helps in creating forms that we normally used to create in Excel. For this reason alone it's a huge upgrade. Plus is relatively easy to use once you know how to use it. Also, it works best for forms that you need to fill in.

  • It enables me to quickly update and distribute forms that have been changed.
  • The layout features help ensure that the forms look professional.
  • The ability to preview what the final form will look like and how it will work, while still editing, is extremely helpful.

  • Biggest issue is the user friendliness for the designer. It is hard to get elements to do what you want if you are adding any sort of design to your form. In my case I make flyers which require not only the form fills, but also other elements like pictures and background design elements.
  • The import from PSD or AI function does not work properly most of the time. If you create a document with lots of visual elements, your best bet is to convert as much of that as possible to a rasterized image and then popping that in as the background rather than trying to import elements. They come out very wonky, colors are lost in conversion, and the layout doesn't come over.

ABBYY FineReader

Although both have functionalities that they share, in ABBYY FineReader they are better implemented, they have a better performance, in addition to being a more intuitive and simple user that makes their learning curve relatively simple, it is as if the options I need are always available. the hand and not within complicated menus or overloaded interfaces

We chose this solution because it offered more flexibility , decreased our overall expenses and is what allowed us to execute our operations and business needs effectively. Adobe LiveCycle is a step above all of its competitors. Your only setback will be the initial training time investments.
