Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Acrobat DC

Adobe Acrobat DC is necessary and well suited for professionals who receive multiple PDFs from various sources, and need a program to view those. Depending on the version, the option to redact info and covert non-PDFs to PDFs is also very necessary. Less appropriate situations for needing this program would be graphic designers, as photoshop would have similar capabilities. having the capabilities of photoshop as an expectation and then opening up adobe acrobat usually leads to disappointment at Adobe's limitations.

M‑Files

M-Files is well suited for a step-by-step process that involves changes to documents. Such as a document approval process. Specifically in the way that we currently use IT for contracts, which involves revisions and approvals by multiple people, tracking of milestones and important dates, and management of associated insurance requirements.We also have a trip application process that I would love to integrate into M-Files. This would eliminate the need for multiple people to print and sign a document to show their approval. The approval could be granted within the same system and then the application moved to the next step in the approval process. An example of a less appropriate use - M-files would probably be overkill for a simple repository of data/documents that only one person needs to access. Although if I already had M-Files I would probably use it anyway.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Adobe Acrobat works particularly well with opening documents quickly and not having compatibility issues with various sources of documents.
  • Also, if you do not need some of the more advanced features that the more expensive professional version provides, there are free or less expensive versions that better suit your needs. that flexibility is welcome
  • The UI of zooming into documents that might have smaller font or unclear information is very helpful, and generally, anyone can sit down and figure out how to work the program with very little training. It's very intuitive.

Cons

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Since there are many different versions, I would like some sort of pop up while downloading to display the various versions and which on you are currently requesting, to compare. much like how Amazon will show the product you are looking at, and below that it will show other products from the same line that offer different features.
  • I'm not sure if this option already exists, but some form of customer service attached to a button in the program. If you were stuck, you could click the button and be immediately connected with customer service.

  • One major frustration we have had has to do with our particular project, not the tool in and of itself. We had a combination of development efforts, some from M-Files and some from our developers in house. It has been hard to push the project forward at times since we are not allowed to control the cloud environment or develop in the cloud environment. We have had to wait on things to get pushed via content packs we develop on prem, which are then shared via a dropbox to M-Files. We hoped there would be a smoother solution for this.

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.

Easy to use. simple. Does everything I need it to do. Makes my job easier and saves me much time in generating proposals. It helps me keep track of those proposals as well as being able to look up contact information on an account and contract agreements at the click of a button.

I noticed some lagging with the integration with Microsoft Office but not so much that I would not use it. It has gotten better with updates. to be fair the issues were when Office 2013 first came out.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Acrobat DC

We transitioned from Adobe Acrobat Reader to Adobe Acrobat DC because of the additional capabilities that Adobe Acrobat DC allowed. I can modify a document much more efficiently, easily and quickly than with Adobe Acrobat Reader. I also have more tools that I am able to use to create a document that is better for distribution to our consumer.

I used Worldox document management system for almost 14 years at a previous employer. Worldox was a good product 2001-2015, however staff use was limited because it was not user-friendly and other products (e.g., M-Files) had more features. I've used SharePoint for ~2.5 years at my current employer. SharePoint 365 is a vast improvement over older versions and we use it extensively. M-Files is very user-friendly and the ability to search multiple systems simultaneously puts in far ahead of Worldox, SharePoint and any other document management system that I've heard of. The intelligent search capability of the M-Files IML Tool which automatically searches for company/customer names, document types, contacts ... is a huge differentiator AND will pay immediate dividends for staff.
