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.

Kofax Capture

Kofax Capture is an appropriate application where a large number of documents need to be scanned and digitized for further use. Kofax Capture is suitable for large organizations like educational institutions, hospitals, and accounting departments.

Cons

  • 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.

  • We have at least 10+ licenses so it can be somewhat pricey.

Cost of Kofax is high, however the cost to benefit scenarios always pay off.

Usability

ActiveDocs9.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Performance

ActiveDocs8.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Kofax is quicker when searching mass amounts of documents and data. Any filters would bring up immediate information, whereas in Access the database is slower.

Return on Investment

  • Greatly increases productivity by removing document creation and copy-pasting from an employee's workflow.
  • Reduces mistakes made during the manual document creation process, ensuring better and more professional deliverables.
  • Cost for the software is market price and very fair for what is gained.

  • We were able to decrease personnel expenditures as there was not a need for individuals to index documents prior to incorporating them into the record.
