Adobe Acrobat DC

What I liked the most was how nice the PDFs look and all the options Adobe gives you. Capturing parts of the PDF is very useful for making reports. The conception of the image as a vector object is a right choice, since you can zoom without losing quality.Adobe Acrobat products need a simplification, Acrobat comes with Acrobat Reader, but you have to pay monthly. DC comes without Scan, but the MAX comes with the Scan, but without the cloud, and the cloud comes without the MAX but with the Adobe Acrobat DC, it is a tremendous mess to know what tools you need apart from the Adobe Acrobat DC to have everything centralized in the same suite. That and the price you have per month if you only select Acrobat DC

Very well suited for large corporations that are processing a lot of proposals. This platform can reflect your brand physically and ensure that the proposals your staff are distributing are accurate.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Can take ANY PDF and edit it in just a few clicks.
  • Can embed live links, easily.
  • Can scan ANY image, and edit it easily and quickly.
  • We run digital marketing campaigns where we take our eBook, Drawing On Brilliance and customize it to each brand we are working with. The eBook we use is one-of-a-kind, with a well-proven 100% customer engagement rate so being able to include each brand sponsors logo means a viral, lifetime of end customer exposure is invaluable - ROI for life.
  • Apple's decision to not allow live links in their pdf docs anymore, drove many of us to Adobe. Live links are critically important in marketing docs as they give the end-user the opportunity to read what they value, and deeper-dive as they feel the need to. We also can use these live links in our data analytics when we measure depth of engagement. That's ROI for our customers, ROI for us as we then adapt quickly to that digital feedback (more of what works, less of what does not etc...)
  • This capability opens all kinds of new opportunities for us. Our creative team is always scouting new sources of inspirational ideas. They were always scanning with their mobile devices. We just started to exploit this capability now that we have Adobe Acrobat DC and it's super easy to use. We scan as we always have, upload it to Adobe and edit away - as if we had created the original image ourselves. We're able to take the original scan and create an endless stream of new ways to turn it into what will engage our customers and their end-users too.

  • Simple to implement and use. If you're using Word to write proposals, distribute, redline and edit them... you're going to save time on the first proposal you write.
  • Impressive to our prospects. When we distribute our password-protected proposals, our prospects always comment on what a great experience it is.
  • A huge time-saver with its templating capabilities. We have standard engagements with our clients and we're able to control and update the messaging as needed, and still personalize it to each opportunity.
  • A company that listens and cares about their clients' usage. From day 1 at TinderBox, the team has been responsive to our needs.
  • Tracking and measurement show our success rates. We love the fact that we get notified when the prospect opens the proposal and that we can track our team's success.

Cons

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Can't think of any

  • The editing tool which runs the platform is not very user-friendly, so sometimes it's frustrating to make custom wording or formatting changes to a proposal.

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.

It's a fantastic platform as is, but there's always an opportunity to squeeze a little optimization into the fold. I am of the belief that the user should be looking left to go backwards, right to go forwards, up to the right for support, and hitting the menus for other commands. Sometimes I go to advance and I'm hit with the message that I have to save first... so I have to click a button up top to save, then back down to advance. I think a "Save and Continue" in places is appropriate.

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

As I mentioned, we were forced to shop around for an alternative to Apple's designed system. Once Apple killed the ability to embed live links in their PDF creating system, and I'll never understand why since the Apple community clearly wants it back, we went back and checked out Adobe since it was what we knew best and they are the 800 lb gorilla of the industry.So far we are very pleased with the capabilities, pricing and customer service.

They are all the same at the end. Online digital proposal and sign tool. Pulls from products from Salesforce. Opportunity is closed as "won" when the SOW is accepted. My only other experience with these types of tools is SFDC CPQ and it seems very similar. CPQ offered less formatting which was nice, whereas with Octiv there are a lot more customizations you can make.

Return on Investment

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • It allows us to adjust forms to our needs. So we can change the wording from one department to another without having to create entirely new forms.
  • Creating fillable forms allows work to be done quicker because you don't have to mess with formatting due to filling in.
  • We can lock the forms so we can send to people outside the organization and not worry about terms being changed.
