Adobe Acrobat DC

Adobe Acrobat DC is perfect for sharing pdfs remotely with employees who need to contribute to the document. If you have people with opposite schedules, or who are in different offices, this is perfect for signing and adding information/pages to the document. It wouldn't be as useful for screen sharing for remote presentations.

Octiv

We've found that closing deals through Ocitv is very efficient and effective in saving our team time. A small team at our company has been using the beta version to display multiple quotes and proposals through our customized templates. The customization of templates allows multiple teams to leverage the software with little resistance from the client. We work with many legacy companies that still require a formal legal agreement

Cons

  • When clicking "edit" in a PDF document it would be nice if DC would open automatically if you already have a license to use it.
  • It would be nice to have a cleaner interface to add images.
  • Working with text is a bit awkward and would be more efficient to have the window for font and size more accessible.

  • The editor is wonky and feels finicky. I am constantly having to push around the table of contents. Did you get rid of the hand burger bar?
  • Undo redo will auto save not letting me go back and undo something.
  • Because of finicky editor I had to start a proposal from scratch.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Using a product like Dropbox for Business, while totally functional, may not look and feel as familiar to some of the people on our team. Everyone we do business with is familiar with Acrobat, and it's simply more comfortable all around. Not to mention the features for PDFs make Acrobat a much better choice as well.

Return on Investment

  • Adobe is used by the entire company each and every day, and the investment was very little. This has been a very positive impact.

  • Positive: Time saving and proposal consistency.
  • Negative: Unreliable editor.
  • Positive: I appreciate the ability to track user's activity once a proposal is completed.
