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.

PinPoint DMS

Pinpoint is great if you have a lot of documents that need to be organized in a specific way. It works really well for our organization which has to go through an annual audit. Anything the auditors might need can be easily found and emailed to them with only a few clicks of the mouse rather than digging through file cabinets and storage boxes

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.

PinPoint DMS

  • I would like to see more functionality with the contact manager system
  • We still haven't been able to master the automatic filing feature
  • It is difficult to make changes to the setup after you have been using it a while, kind of stuck with the way you organize things.

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 does take some time to learn about all of the features and systems within Pinpoint. It is also slightly difficult to set up, however, we have invested a lot of time into making it work for our organization and we don't regret that investment at all. The Pinpoint staff has always been very helpful and accommodating to anything we need.

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.

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.

The support team with Pinpoint is wonderful. I have always had all of my questions answered in a very timely manner by someone who knows my system and understands our goals. I always feel listened to and our problems are taken care of. I enjoy the option to email for assistance or jump on a quick conference call to talk about an issue

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.
