Adobe Acrobat DC

What I liked the most was how nice the PDFs look and all the options Adobe gives you. Capturing parts of the PDF is very useful for making reports. The conception of the image as a vector object is a right choice, since you can zoom without losing quality.Adobe Acrobat products need a simplification, Acrobat comes with Acrobat Reader, but you have to pay monthly. DC comes without Scan, but the MAX comes with the Scan, but without the cloud, and the cloud comes without the MAX but with the Adobe Acrobat DC, it is a tremendous mess to know what tools you need apart from the Adobe Acrobat DC to have everything centralized in the same suite. That and the price you have per month if you only select Acrobat DC

ContractZen

ContractZen is perfect for a team or SMB use case. We use it to store all contracts: HR, services bought, subcontractors and sales. The benefits are somewhat different for different types of contracts, but having all in the same place is a benefit in and of itself.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • I like the fill and sign feature.
  • Synching feature is very nice.
  • Simplicity for basic tasks with a PDF, although then the thing gets a bit complicated. It has quite a lot of options

ContractZen

  • The easy storage of contracts is important. Easier than a shared hard drive folder or a jointly administered Excel sheet, both of which we tried to use in the past.
  • The alerts of key contract dates is crucial. Knowing what needs to be terminated or at least considered has saved us money.
  • Simple signing of contracts electronically has saved us money in getting from an agreed to contract to a signed one in minutes.

Cons

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Listen to their Customers

  • Accept their system is not infallible

  • The iPhone application is underpowered, I suggest using the web version also on mobile devices.

The data is stored and presented in a logical fashion. The main screens are straightforward and simple. The email to sign -functionality with the signing directly on a mobile device is easy enough to get some real traction.

The capture of the new contracts is more important than the old contracts, somewhat counterintuitively. Once you start saving time using the electronic signing and retrieval, adding old material is easier. Old material additions fit our annual schedule as we've done them during periods of less administrative work.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Acrobat DC

We actually had Nitro before Adobe. While it made claims to offer more features and be intuitive, most staffers felt the opposite. And some of the Nitro extra features were completely unnecessary and we never used them such as the ability to customize certain tabs or create large numbers of PDFs at one time. The Nitro floating toolbar was actually really difficult for us to use unless we were on a larger, external monitor. We found Adobe's compatibility with MS Word much better than Nitro's, fewer errors post-conversion. We use separate image editing software in conjunction with Adobe; Nitro seemed to try to offer more image editing options but they weren't robust enough anyway so we ended up using separate image editing software anyway. So, as I said before, Nitro was less expensive on the front end but ultimately wasn't cost effective once we started using it.

ContractZen is true value for the money and far more simpler than more advanced systems

Return on Investment

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Overall, Adobe Acrobat has a positive impact on our ROI, or we wouldn't have been using it for the past several years. The PDF software space is crowded but Adobe has the best product out there.
  • We started with Nitro, which was undoubtedly less expensive on the front end but necessitated more staff training and wasn't as robust and functional as Adobe Acrobat. Ultimately, Adobe has paid off since it's almost completely intuitive and takes care of practically every underwriting and marketing document-related task we've used it for.
  • Adding additional users is fast and easy. Adobe has an easy portal for managing our ongoing software subscription.
  • Of all the software we use, the Adobe product has needed the least amount of IT support. In fact, we haven't needed ANY IT support since we started using it. Cost- and time-saving at it's best.

  • We've gone faster from agreement to invoicing thanks to the electronic signing.
  • Some of the alerts have saved us money as we've been able to terminate SaaS services prior to being billed for yet another year.
  • Being able to review contracts made by other team members has reduced friction and unnecessary emailing of contracts. This has saved time from busy executives and sales persons.
