Likelihood to Recommend

Adobe Acrobat DC

People who are editing documents frequently, especially PDF documents, will really benefit from Adobe Acrobat DC. Also, people are creating simple graphics for distribution to their consumers will benefit from using Adobe Acrobat DC. People who are not frequently editing PDFs, or who do not need to edit PDFs at all will do fine with the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

It is great as collaboration tool around projects where resource and task management are key. The project manager and contributors can start without much training or preparation. Although functionality exists, it is not optimal for managing large complex projects, programmes or portfolios. The tool is not suited if the task is pure file sharing or merely document collaboration.

Pros

  • Adobe Acrobat DC is very easy to use to edit already created PDF documents. I work with multiple agreement documents in our organization, and with Adobe Acrobat DC, I can modify the individual agreement forms to personalize to each document.
  • Adobe Acrobat DC is a great tool to create documents, such as flyers or graphics, to distribute on digital marketing platforms. It is very easy to edit the document as you work on it and allows for great creative work.
  • Adobe Acrobat DC allows me to convert formats easily. I am able to move things that are PDFs to Word Documents or PDFs to JPEG images so I can post the created content on our digital marketing platforms.

Cons

  • Program size. By far, the main drawback is that my computer does not have enough processing capability to handle. It is VERY slow to install and often slow to open too.
  • Functionality. There are some types of commenting that the program does not handle as well (e.g., hand written comments that you want to try to put in with your mouse).
  • Licenses. You only get two licenses with each subscription, which can make it expensive to implement in a large scale format.

  • Account administration could use some work. Does not afford the detailed data or knobs and levers to manage the account at a granular level. For example, the inability to assign departments to external (non-account) project members.
  • New features get rolled out fairly frequently, but sometimes with only partial functionality and with little fanfare or supporting documentation.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
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.

Performance

Adobe Acrobat DC8.0
Based on 1 answer
Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC performs at an acceptable rate. The software takes some time to load, but nothing that is unreasonable when launching a document. The program responds at a reasonable speed and performs well when operating tasks. It takes time for it to evaluate a document when you request to edit the document, but that is understandable considering it is identifying words and such in the document.

Alternatives Considered

We have used Acrobat DC as part of our Adobe CC subscription since 2014 and as it has always sat well with our other software purchases and performed all the tasks required of it, we've never had a reason to look elsewhere. It may be that if our current trial of the fill and sign functionality doesn't produce the results we want then we'll look at other options then, but for now we'll definitely be sticking with Acrobat DC.

  • Unfortunately I don't have any access to numbers or ROI stats, but the ease of day to day work with Projectplace is truly priceless.
