Adobe Acrobat DC

Adobe Acrobat DC is an essential part of every office's software toolkit - the ability to easily create and distribute information in an easily opened yet secure format is invaluable. I don't really see who wouldn't be able to find use for Acrobat. There are even some really powerful pieces of functionality that we don't use such as OCR reading that I can imagine being incredibly useful.

FileHold

FileHold is well suited because it reduces the paper use for approvals. It also allows the managers to track the time employees spend sending files for approval and how many times it takes them to get the approval. FileHold is less appropriate when the approvers of a document are out of office and they did not set up a backup approver

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.

  • Keep track of approval process once a document is submitted for approval
  • Allowed me to run reports on the amount of documents approved the first time through, second time through etc.
  • Allowed tracking of documents.

Cons

  • The support for questions is a little outdated online. When you have a question about functionality the community FAQ's are for older versions.
  • Adobe is a huge company so customer service support with registration issues is not very quick.
  • It is not the cheapest product. But for a business use, it is invaluable.

  • Whenever there was an update done to the program, we would run into multiple issues.

Alternatives Considered

Much more robust. Support from Adobe. A trusted source for updates and I know it is going to work. Adobe can also be used on any device through their cloud share. So I can access my pdf's on my cell phone or iPad if I need to make adjustments while I am away from my desktop.

I find FileHold more useful than SAP at times. It is easier to use, you do not need transaction codes. Both programs allow you to run reports. I am not sure if SAP could be compared with FileHold due to the fact that I use SAP to get approval and funding on tooling contracts. However, in FileHold, all you get is an approval from your supervisors. If all the departments would use FileHold, it would be more efficient and effective.
