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

Evernote

Evernote is well suited for small documents and notes storage and collaboration. The documents can be shared and discussed in real time in Evernote and documents can be shared so that changes are visible to all the members. As there is no option to tag a specific section or paragraph of the document, Evernote becomes less useful for storage and organizing of large size documents.

Pros

  • Dynamic. Changes the way you think about static word/pdf documents
  • Deep. Has tons of things that can be done. From combining multiple pdf's into one or breaking up pdf workbooks into multiple single pages.
  • Gives you an unlimited amount of tools to adjust and tweak forms to meet your business needs.

  • The documents can be searched with keywords present in the content of the document. This even works for text/keywords in images with amazing accuracy.
  • One can simply email the files to a designated email id and the files automatically get stored into your Evernote account. This saves a lot of hassle in first downloading the content from the email and then uploading it to Evernote.
  • Evernote also acts as a contact management tool. One can simply scan business cards and then the contact information can be searched later. Evernote also pulls out the contact information from LinkedIn so that you always have the latest information present and can see the professional profile of the person to get a better context. This feature is mainly used by sales and business development teams.

I currently use the free version, and I am happy with it. I would have to see what the premium version offers before upgrading.

Evernote is extremely easy and intuitive to use. Open it and start typing. Very little training is required to use even the advanced features.

Generally issues are by connectivity and not Evernote availability but I have had issues in the past with cross-client consistency of data which Evernote Support has ID'd as bugs that are still unresolved as far as I know

Alternatives Considered

I've used Adobe Acrobat X Pro in addition to other older versions of Adobe, and this is by far the most advanced. This version makes it easy to edit the document, combine pdfs, and manipulate the document in other ways such as signatures.

Evernote hands down is my favorite tool in this arena. Much cleaner than Microsoft's OneNote.

Return on Investment

  • I personally invested in Acrobat several years ago and I have definitely utilized it as a good ROI mostly through the file conversion features.
  • In addition to my work based on utilization of the software, I have personally used it for the creation of forms and signed letters for the management of sport-related activities.
  • The cost for the full version of Acrobat is high, therefore it can be difficult for a small business or independent contractor to afford the expense.

  • Ability to share notes
  • Ability to share sync data on laptop and iPhone
  • Reasonable cost to entry
