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.

Guardian makes completing meaningful reviews very easy. As long as you set up boxes in a given field that need meaningful review it will be there every time you need to do one. If four officers had to use force on a resisting subject, all of the meaningful review entries are done on one entry form. If you find that one officer needs to be retrained in an area you can simply create a new entry and associate the meaningful review as needed

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.

  • There should be a means to edit the entry after you have saved it. Sometimes the writer will make an error in spelling and it's permanently saved to the record. Minor issue.
  • Easier way to save entries to your desktop (for proofs).

Usability

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.

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

ActiveDocs 8.0
Based on 2 answers
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.

We haven't had the experience of using other products similar to Guardian. I have heard of other Early Warning software from other agencies, but they don't seem to do as much as Guardian does for us. With Guardian we are able to acknowledge good performance, track poor and note areas where training is needed department wide.
