Likelihood to Recommend

ActiveDocs

There are not a lot of competitors to compare this product with, but ActiveDocs holds its own as a very useful software for the need. I recommend doing a demo to see how the process works, but it's rather streamlined and easy to create a template and produce a document from it.

airSlate

airSlate is well suited for any scenario where content from a form needs to added to Salesforce or similar. It's also well suited for any form that requires a signature and/or initials. airSlate is less appropriate if a form need to be filled out from a local drive. Although there are workarounds, airSlate is a web-based platform and is designed to be used in that way.

Cons

ActiveDocs

  • The built-in template designs are a bit lackluster. While there are numerous, they all have the same blase style and formatting
  • The built-in template designs are not very diverse and could be expanded upon.

airSlate

  • The mobile signing process needs improvement for more involved agreements with multiple signature locations
  • Dumbing down the html rules for those who would like to include rich text
  • Looking forward to improved page load times both while editing and creating and during actual use by team members and prospects

Very good usability overall. Any user can pick this up and run with it. HotDocs, the closest competitor, has similar end-user usability, but from a designer of templates perspective, ActiveDocs definitely has the edge in this regard. I would recommend this for any company that mass produces documents from templates as deliverables.

It seems airSlate designers spent a significant amount of time ensuring the product is easy to use and appealing. They were able to accomplish this without sacrificing functionality and quality. The interface isn't cluttered and allows end-user to get going with minimal training. Designing workflows is a snap with the drag and drop "bots" (functions).

The software overall is very excellent. It responds quickly and produces documents well. The integration with systems makes data input easy. Questions can be designed to allow further expansion of template creation/customization. The rules section is very useful for complicated If/Than/Else style templates. Although experience and training help, the software is very user-friendly out of the box.

Support Rating

ActiveDocs can be a considerably complex product because your use cases can be potentially endless. In our experience, when we have come across a problem or issue with the product ActiveDoc's support has always responded to our queries within 24 hours. Support is only provided via email in 95% of cases. Each year your support and maintenance includes support hours. These are used when you contact support and your issue is not found to be a bug or problem with the product (completely fair and understandable). When we've identified or discovered bugs (mainly with the latest version of Word) it is patched by the next release. They typically release about 4-5 updates per year.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveDocs

ActiveDocs and HotDocs are very similar. HotDocs requires training or a technically savvy mind to pick up and run with. ActiveDocs seems much more user-friendly and easy to use. HotDocs, however, can produce some very intricate documents based on the templates. Both use rules and question-based information intake. Another benefit of ActiveDocs is its integration with numerous systems including Office 365.

airSlate

Tallyfy is a wonderfully robust solution but airSlate further connected the dots for us with the full integration to the electronic signature aspect of our needs. I'm not sure where Tallyfy stands currently on that front.
