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

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

  • Combine pdfs. It is helpful in combining multiple pdfs together for ease into one document.
  • Split pdfs. On the opposite side, it is helpful to split one pdf into multiple documents for easier distribution to individuals associated with each section of a larger pdf.
  • Comment on pdfs. It is helpful in making comments on pdf documents that can then be saved for personal reference or sharing with others.

  • eSignature integration has been a game changer four our organization. The simplification of obtaining client signature on necessary documents through this system has virtually eliminated our need for physically mailing documents to clients.
  • With our documents hosted by eFileCabinet, our team has increased capability to work from home/while on the road without needing to take along physically paperwork.
  • The search function that allows for on-page searching has been extremely useful when we're looking for older documents that we can't quite recall the title of.

Cons

  • Program size. By far, the main drawback is that my computer does not have enough processing capability to handle. It is VERY slow to install and often slow to open too.
  • Functionality. There are some types of commenting that the program does not handle as well (e.g., hand written comments that you want to try to put in with your mouse).
  • Licenses. You only get two licenses with each subscription, which can make it expensive to implement in a large scale format.

  • SecureDrawer could use improvement, it doesn't feel completely intuitive to the user, sometimes I find myself confused or irritated while trying to set up someone, or re-map folders.

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

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.

We find eFileCabinet to be more secure than the alternative products we were using at the time, around 5 years ago. The system is far more robust and better suited the large number of files we needed to store, plus the amount of security and restrictions we needed to be able to provide for our clients

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • eFileCabinet is an integral part of our system, it's return on investment is intangible.
