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.

If there is a desire to extract text from emails, documents, spreadsheets, and faxes this is the perfect platform for that. The only thing it does, extracting information, it does well. External information in terms of flat files, databases, and web services can be tied into the platform as well to allow line item matching, address validation, and other features that make it just an overall great ingestion system.

Pros

  • Adobe Acrobat DC is very easy to use to edit already created PDF documents. I work with multiple agreement documents in our organization, and with Adobe Acrobat DC, I can modify the individual agreement forms to personalize to each document.
  • Adobe Acrobat DC is a great tool to create documents, such as flyers or graphics, to distribute on digital marketing platforms. It is very easy to edit the document as you work on it and allows for great creative work.
  • Adobe Acrobat DC allows me to convert formats easily. I am able to move things that are PDFs to Word Documents or PDFs to JPEG images so I can post the created content on our digital marketing platforms.

  • One of the things we relied on Kofax was its connector with Oracle UCM and Filenet. It was easy to configure batch classes and set up release scripts to UCM or Filent
  • One other aspect of it was validation scripts based on external Oracle databases. It was very helpful.
  • After removal of dongle, it became easier to maintain the software.

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.

  • We struggled with configuring Kofax with AP Automation. We used to receive vouchers in different formats by different companies, by different departments. The people from different departments used to scan those vouchers through regular scanners to a central location, which ended up as image pdfs. We fed these image pdfs through Kofax Capture for character recognition, which was painful as the accuracy of recognition was 50 to 60%.
  • Having a connectors with a workflow tool would be helpful where people can validate and approve the output.
  • More samples and documentation related to use of API in .NET applications would be a good improvement, that would help users to adapt the product easily into their organization.

Cost of Kofax is high, however the cost to benefit scenarios always pay off.

Usability

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

By comparison Acrobat DC has an easier interface and is much more compatible with other products. It also integrates flawlessly with other Adobe products that we use on a regular basis in our department. For this reason, Acrobat DC was the superior choice.

Kofax is quicker when searching mass amounts of documents and data. Any filters would bring up immediate information, whereas in Access the database is slower.

Return on Investment

  • I save a lot of time - and therefore money - because I can more efficiently edit and comment on documents that multiple people or firms are collaborating on. Rather than having a two hour phone call to discuss everyone's input and edits, each individual can spend a half hour to review and edit, and then we can hop on a call and discuss a more finalized report.
  • The only negative impact is that time isn't saved when working on-the-go from a smartphone.

  • Positive impact due to increased accounting efficiencies in filing AP and AR backup
  • Positive impact if company gets audited, as all files are easily retrievable based on criteria and filters
