Adobe Acrobat DC

Adobe Acrobat DC can be used on many platforms. It is well suited to manage your PDF files and documents in many ways. You can also sign files by using this software. It helps in creating, editing as well as securing PDF files. It is less appropriate to identify/ track changes on a PDF, when you already saved a PDF file after editing. So, it is important to take care of the originality of our information .

NetDocuments

It is ideal where security is your number one concern or where there is a need to share securely across different physical locations. Speed is less than ideal in certain usage scenarios. It is limited by the speed of the internet and it can be difficult to pull large quantities of documents when researching or answering discovery requests, although, that being said, it can be addressed by maintaining your own secure server to contain a mirror of your online documents. But then the security for a mirror falls back on the organization.

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.

  • Providing limited access to specific documents to strategic partners outside your organization while maintaining security for the rest of your repository.
  • Providing granular security to maintain ethical firewalls in situations where your organization represents competing interests
  • Customer support is really good. All phone representatives are expert in the product and can provide real solutions without resorting to scripted responses. In addition, there is a vast consultant community with in-depth knowledge in a wide range of industries and markets.
  • Transparency is a key ethos with NetDocuments, when they have a problem they are clear about what, where and why; and when it will be solved.

Cons

  • The app can be a little slow and somewhat laggy when you're importing or exporting big documents
  • The application can be really difficult and confusing to use when you start using it for the first time

  • Delay. At times, there is a delay between saving a document into Netdocuments and actually seeing them in the appropriate workspace. Such a delay is caused by the system indexing the newly added file.
  • Netdocuments' servers slow down at times causing users to receive error messages. This can be quickly remedied, but can become a nuisance.

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.

Worldox GX3 was considered as an alternative to Netdocuments before the firm decided to switch to Netdocuments. There were some differences, which may or may not apply to Worldox GX4 (the current feature of the software)

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.

  • The only possible negative impact on ROI are two: One, you choose not to spend the dollars on infrastructure to make sure you have fast web access or Two, you do not provide enough training to your staff to ensure expectations are met when the product rolls out.
  • My first roll out the planning was a little thin on the ground and users were not trained well enough and they kept trying to avoid the product. Once the training caught up with all the users the product was embraced.
