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

Pros

  • 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.

  • OCR on a document that is a copy, of a copy, of a copy of a 1980s fax copy...
  • Convert to Word or Excel and it's fully editable. It's literally, a PDF playground.
  • The ability to find and replace words in a document.
  • Ability to scan a document, turn it into Word, edit and convert back and it is SO CLEAN.
  • Easily combine PDFs; you can have two PDFS open, open the page panel on the left, grab one page and drag it to the other PDF, and put in the exact spot you want it in.
  • Delete and extract pages
  • You can even add images and text boxes to an already existing PDF.
  • Bates stamping, watermarks, add headers and footers

Cons

  • When editing a pdf, sometimes the highlighting areas can be skewed. It isn't 100% accurate on where the test is and will jump around a bit. Also, it will jump out of place on the checklist as well. For instance, there might be an edit that is at the top of the document, but on the checklist is towards the middle. This can be critical depending on the severity of the edit. It takes away the purpose of having a checklist when it is unorganized.
  • Acrobat, despite it's UI flaws, is a very easy tool that can critically help with anyone using pdfs. Beginners and experienced users will find it useful and perfect for almost every job. If you can imagine something you want to do to a pdf, then Acrobat can probably handle it.
  • I hate how the Adobe Volume license works and how hard it is to find the right product license to use ... we have many licenses

  • I think that the user interface could be improved on Mac OS.

Alternatives Considered

No considere otro producto ... Creo que Adobe Acrobat DC es el mejor en el mercado ... Si no lo tiene, se dará cuenta de cómo es una necesidad para su negocio. Si maneja una gran cantidad de papeleo, esto le permite almacenar, administrar y guardar documentos digitalmente.

Return on Investment

  • 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.
