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.

Where several of our companies facilities are located, we are very remote on military bases. So, using regular postal service to get our paperwork out wasn't a good option and was very time-consuming. It also wasn't very secure or a 'sure thing' that the paperwork would get to where it needed to go. So, DocuSign is a HUGE timesaver and money saver. Our parents can't come to our site, so we needed an efficient way to get our paperwork signed within our legal timeframe without being near the recipients. DocuSign fit the bill, and we love it!

Cons

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Can't think of any

DocuSign

  • It would be great if they could program the document reader to recognize blanks and the word "date" and "initial" and check my document for missing action assignments so I don't miss any signing points.
  • It would be great if I could copy people on a send report...i.e. send the title company a list of people signing, the order, and everyone who is scheduled to get a copy of the fully executed document. I can see what I set up but I haven't found a way to "show my work" to others.
  • It would be great if I could assign roles to people so the program could check for accuracy against the words in the documents. For example, I program Joe as the Seller. Then if i accidentally assign Joe to sign too close to the work Buyer it would let me know to check my work.

It facilitates exchanges of contracts, tax documents and legal materials electronically and that DocuSign’s features include authentication services, user identity management and workflow automation making it easier for the creator and signers.

I think it is pretty easy to use from an end-user perspective. When I receive a document I need to sign, I know straight from the beginning which area I need to sign. There is the possibility of designing a signature automatically for you which is pretty convenient and accelerates the process.

I'd give them a 10, but there has been 1 or 2 small cases that seemed to fall to the wayside, but I was able to call them up and get them resolved. We were having a bad implementation night (after midnight) and we needed assistance from Docusign. They were able to get an engineer to help us in the early morning hours

Until you get the hang of it, I recommend doing several internal tests before sending a document to a client. As I mentioned earlier, you have to go through a bit of trial and error at first to verify that the workflow works as expected.

I personally have not used any other program. The decision to use DocuSign was not my choice. I am happy with the choice that was decided upon by others.

Return on Investment

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Employee efficiency. This has improved employee efficiency (which saves costs) in being able to share comments electronically in pdfs rather than have to meet in person.
  • International collaboration. This allows for more international collaboration, which can extend the reach of visibility of the organization and thereby the breadth of customers attracted.
  • Cost. Given the high cost of the program, some could argue that it decreases ROI when there are other free options available that have slightly more limited functionality.
