Adobe Acrobat DC

People who are editing documents frequently, especially PDF documents, will really benefit from Adobe Acrobat DC. Also, people are creating simple graphics for distribution to their consumers will benefit from using Adobe Acrobat DC. People who are not frequently editing PDFs, or who do not need to edit PDFs at all will do fine with the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Apple iCloud

It seems to work very well for small group collaboration much better than it does for larger groups or more complex projects. The other (minor) thing, is that while working across locations, there isn't a chat function, which would be huge when working on documents that work off info that others have. While at the same location, working on a small project iCloud works great for us. The other issue is that some of our Android users can't do some of the same things their colleagues using iOS can while on the go.

Usability

Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC provides an easy user interface. The program can take some time to get used to, just like most programming you use, but once the software is understood it is very easy for users to use. Compared to many programs this is very easy for people to use.

Apple iCloud is very usable, and anyone can use it without much knowledge. Simple backups are automatic, and anyone can set this up. More advanced document transfers may require some additional knowledge as to the restrictions and limitations.

Performance

Based on 1 answer
Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC performs at an acceptable rate. The software takes some time to load, but nothing that is unreasonable when launching a document. The program responds at a reasonable speed and performs well when operating tasks. It takes time for it to evaluate a document when you request to edit the document, but that is understandable considering it is identifying words and such in the document.

Alternatives Considered

Having previously used Nitro Pro, we were pleased to gain the additional functionality that Adobe provides. Sending and tracking documents is much easier than on Nitro. The support function is slicker and quicker and there is a wider community of users to draw upon. I didn't like the initial Acrobat DC offering but it's apparent they've really worked hard on the more recent releases to ensure previous feedback was captured and more importantly acted upon. I still believe Bluebeam to be a credible alternative.

I think Apple iCloud needs a paradigm shift. I have seen this problem back in 1992, where Apple was King.

Return on Investment

  • I think we have a great ROI on this product because we used another product in its place and since we use a number of other Adobe products, we are able to save money by not having to spend money with a competitor.

  • It helps us to be more organized
  • It makes us preserve all our contacts even when we lose our phone
