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.

FileInvite

Our forms for summer camper parents vary depending on the needs of the camper (i.e. allergies, nutrition requirements, & program desirability such as horseback riding or preferred cabin mates). This situational form allowance is a breeze with fileinvite, and the setup process is intuitive and very easy to manage as a collaboration across our entire team

FileInvite

  • As with many "add-on" type products that some parties may not be used to, sometimes the emails get lost and it can be hard for people who aren't used to the product to get used to a new format of communication. That said, I think it has a fairly quick learning curve for people who are even remotely tech-savvy.
  • Have had trouble with documents syncing from time to time.
  • Inability to default to different date format. This one is small, but frustrating when we need it to be in a different format.

      Usability

      ActiveDocs

      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.

      FileInvite

      Aside from a few minor recommendations, the solution is well thought through and very easy to set up. As a matter of fact, the onboarding support by the team was fantastic, and the ongoing availability to help while we were/are learning the platform has been extremely friendly and reliable.

      Performance

      ActiveDocs

      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.

      It has been pretty smooth so far. There was an issue earlier this week that resulted in corrupted invites whereby the unique secure link failed, but I was able to resubmit the invitations quite simply, and they've assured me the issue was unusual and I won't be alarmed unless it happens again sometime soon.

      Support Rating

      ActiveDocs

      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.

      ActiveDocs

      In relation to other software that have a functionality similar to ActiveDocs, they don't even compare in relation to the interface, I didn't use all the software available on the market, but the ones I used and I can compare, ActiveDocs is without a doubt the best among them. We really likes the interface.

      FileInvite has a lot of nice features, but the overall cost is the company's downfall. We were able to get a lot of the same features that we need for a lot less with other companies and providers.
