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 .

This is a great alternative for an SMB company. The cost is fantastic, the features you are looking for are there and a few you may not have known about. If you're looking for a full-blown Acrobat type program, this is an alternative, but if you're using any other Adobe cloud features, I would go with that.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • The service is great. You don't have to subscribe for a whole year. Instead you can subscribe for a month or however long you might need access to the Adobe Cloud service you're interested in. It's also easy to switch licenses from one user to another when business needs change within your organization.
  • You can highlight text and comment on that specific area for others to review.
  • There is a checklist feature that facilitates the editing of the pdf to review the comments and click on them when you have completed them. Being able to combine PDF files and delete or move pages is a great advantage. Its drag-and-drop technology is perfect and very easy to use. Creating fill forms is another advantage that makes any beginner can make editable forms and links.

  • Ability to combine files SEAMLESSLY and order them around as necessary (so underrated)
  • Signing not only for yourself but for others. Helpful for those who have been granted the authority to sign for VPs and directors
  • Much easier to use than some other PDF viewing services

  • Price

  • The version we have which is a little older had features in odd places such as adding pages to a PDF was kind of buried.
  • Product seems to run a little slow in a Citrix environment. I believe it would run better on a dedicated PC.
  • I'd like for them to try and mimic Adobe more as that seems to be laid out a little better for end user features.

For the most part, it is very quick. I only have issues when first starting my computer. Sometimes I have to restart my computer to get the program working

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Acrobat DC

I have only ever used Adobe Reader beforehand, which has much less functionality and capabilities. Adobe Acrobat DC is a whole other ball game.

I downloaded the trial versions of both Acrobat DC and Nitro PDF, and found Nitro to be superior in price, while Acrobat was superior in software features and user-friendliness. I knew I would be using Nitro for basic publishing and editing of PDFs, which both programs do well, but I couldn't justify the extra expense for Acrobat for features I wouldn't use and a slight increase in user-friendliness.

Return on Investment

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • I think we have a great ROI on this product because we used another product in its place and since we use a number of other Adobe products, we are able to save money by not having to spend money with a competitor.

  • Nitro provided the features we needed at a very comfortable price for a non-profit organization.
