Adobe Acrobat DC

If you are building an ADA accessible website, Adobe Acrobat DC is a must-have tool! Before we started using Adobe Acrobat DC to check our PDFs we were running into a ton of issues. Now, we know that every new PDF we upload is ADA compliant, and it's easy enough that most of our users are able to create ADA accessible PDFs on their own.

XaitPorter

XaitPorter is ideal when a large document, containing many (preferably independent) sections is being created by more than five writers across different office locations and is subject to review by multiple reviewers and requires formal approval. It is particularly suited for external documents which are to be delivered as a non-editable PDF file.

Pros

  • Security - whilst no security measures are without their weaknesses, the protection of our documents and web assets afforded by Acrobat DC does allow us to have a greater level of control over content we release to some of our clients and customers.
  • Ease of use - the tried and tested Adobe interface is relatively intuitive and easy to use which is definitely an advantage when training new members of staff.
  • Universality of the format - I know this isn't something that's specific to Acrobat, but they are, in my opinion, market leaders when it comes to pdf creation and editing. We use a range of other Adobe products and being able to deliver information to clients in a way that they can always access without needing to invest in Photoshop or Illustrator is invaluable.

  • This tool gives us the opportunity to work together. We always work in the last revision.
  • We can write comments as we go along and all involved will see it straight away.
  • We can structure it the way we want/our the way customer wants it and print the whole book in one go. We are sure that pictures/text/tables are where they are supposed to be (they have not moved around the document as it does when using Microsoft Word).

Cons

  • We have an on-going subscription to Adobe Acrobat DC, which isn't inexpensive. Not the most cost-effective of the PDF software available.
  • Software updates fairly regularly, which can be a little annoying. On the flip side, many times it's to stay up-to-date on security features.
  • Conversion to Microsoft Word back and forth is easy and almost error-free; however, we do spot small issues often. Therefore, we have to carefully comb through all docs that have been converted to make certain that they're error-free.
  • Adobe has some proprietary features so someone else using another PDF editing software periodically seems to have trouble with certain features embedded in an Adobe-created PDF. Obviously this exactly what the supposedly standardized PDF format is supposed to prevent...

  • The dashboard is complex and not easily understood. Since we only worked on a few documents at a time, we went straight into the document and never spent time on the dashboard.
  • Being cloud based, the time taken to move from one section of the document to another becomes painful.
  • The word import function could be improved.
  • There are some functionalities in Word that are not available in XaitPorter. For example you can insert pictures within a table in Word but you cant do that in XaitPorter.

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.

XaitPorter is always there even though we have issues with outages (suddenly the network does not work, but that is internal issue)

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.

Our reports/Tenders complete in a reasonable time frame, actually faster than Word. We have not integrated with other systems or softwares.

Alternatives Considered

We actually had Nitro before Adobe. While it made claims to offer more features and be intuitive, most staffers felt the opposite. And some of the Nitro extra features were completely unnecessary and we never used them such as the ability to customize certain tabs or create large numbers of PDFs at one time. The Nitro floating toolbar was actually really difficult for us to use unless we were on a larger, external monitor. We found Adobe's compatibility with MS Word much better than Nitro's, fewer errors post-conversion. We use separate image editing software in conjunction with Adobe; Nitro seemed to try to offer more image editing options but they weren't robust enough anyway so we ended up using separate image editing software anyway. So, as I said before, Nitro was less expensive on the front end but ultimately wasn't cost effective once we started using it.

We haven't evaluated other products. We did have a quick look at the Qvidian website and similar RFP proposal tools but because of the great support we received from XaitPorter, we went straight ahead with them.

Return on Investment

  • It's made it simpler to handle and merge multiple documents from colleagues and different sources
  • It's helped to translate our paper membership and donation forms to an online format

  • Has improved me from spending hours in the office (less overtime).
  • More constructive work. Writers now focus on the write-up and we [focus] on the look and how it reads.
  • We have received positive feedback from customers that our submissions look professional and easy to navigate through.
