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.

Great if your field requires copious amounts of paperwork, and you want to get rid of the clutter and stress of dealing with physical paperwork. With the size of our organization (about 8 people), we were borderline on whether the cost would be worthwhile, but even for our group we've found the enhanced workflow and eSignature function to be very valuable. I would think for groups smaller than ours the cost would likely not be worth it.

Pros

  • Can take ANY PDF and edit it in just a few clicks.
  • Can embed live links, easily.
  • Can scan ANY image, and edit it easily and quickly.
  • We run digital marketing campaigns where we take our eBook, Drawing On Brilliance and customize it to each brand we are working with. The eBook we use is one-of-a-kind, with a well-proven 100% customer engagement rate so being able to include each brand sponsors logo means a viral, lifetime of end customer exposure is invaluable - ROI for life.
  • Apple's decision to not allow live links in their pdf docs anymore, drove many of us to Adobe. Live links are critically important in marketing docs as they give the end-user the opportunity to read what they value, and deeper-dive as they feel the need to. We also can use these live links in our data analytics when we measure depth of engagement. That's ROI for our customers, ROI for us as we then adapt quickly to that digital feedback (more of what works, less of what does not etc...)
  • This capability opens all kinds of new opportunities for us. Our creative team is always scouting new sources of inspirational ideas. They were always scanning with their mobile devices. We just started to exploit this capability now that we have Adobe Acrobat DC and it's super easy to use. We scan as we always have, upload it to Adobe and edit away - as if we had created the original image ourselves. We're able to take the original scan and create an endless stream of new ways to turn it into what will engage our customers and their end-users too.

  • The ability to set restrictions on documents sent out or stored in the system is one great strong suit of eFileCabinet.
  • It gives us the confidence that our documents are safe.
  • eFileCabinet has excellent technical support. When needed, I can call or email them and the problem is usually solved in that moment or that day. They have also worked directly with our IT Support Service to get things set up on our server.
  • The search features are frequently used by me. You can limit where the search takes place, and even search within a search to narrow down your results. The side panel lets you preview the documents as well so most often I don't even need to fully open a document to get the information I need.

Cons

  • Can't think of any

  • The automatic filing structure has been helpful, but has taken a bit of our time to straighten out. Scanned in docs don't always end up where we want them to.
  • Pricing has increased over time, and we would love to see it return to the original level.

Usability

Adobe Acrobat DC8.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Performance

Adobe Acrobat DC8.0
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

Adobe Acrobat DC provides much greater functionality and features than these other programs. Splitpdf and Combinepdf are only free sources that split or combine pdfs, but they are not necessarily secure, and they only do one function. They also require internet to operate. Adobe Acrobat Reader is what everyone uses, and allows viewing of pdfs, but it does not enable splitting, merging, or marking up pdfs.

We have not utilized any eFileCabinet competitiors, and we selected eFileCabinet as it was a preferred product of our broker dealer

Return on Investment

  • Significantly reduced the amount of time taken from creating documents to being able to share them with clients.
  • Using the comment functionality allows on site editing of plans which can almost immediately be picked up in the office and actioned.
  • Although we are only just trialling this - we envisage that using Acrobat DC to allow customers to re-book with us on site will drastically increase the efficiency of our sales processes.

  • ROI has been generally positive. The software is costly, but the ability to remove several file cabinets from our office, as well as the workflow increase and simplification for our employees has made it worthwhile.
