Adobe LiveCycle ES4

We use PDF forms for our submissions to the USPTO as well as for obtaining signature documents. With LiveCycle, I can update forms, save them, load them into my docketing database, and have them pre-populated with data. This process ensures continuity, less chance for error, and the ability to save the paralegals time when it comes to preparing filings.

I think Adobe E-Sign is well suited when you need many acknowledgements at once (MegaSign feature). It is also quite useful if you have one form that needs to get multiple signatures as part of a process (e.g. employee, authorized user, manager). I think it might be a little too cumbersome for just one signature on one form.

Pros

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • It enables me to quickly update and distribute forms that have been changed.
  • The layout features help ensure that the forms look professional.
  • The ability to preview what the final form will look like and how it will work, while still editing, is extremely helpful.

  • The integration between Echosign and our Salesforce CRM is ingenious. Our company absolutely loves being able to provide its confidentiality agreements to potential buyers and clients, knowing it will come back to the respective team member as well as attach in Salesforce.
  • The reporting aspect is also great - we use these document reports as leader boards within the company to offer perspective and motivation for future documents.
  • The signing process is insanely easy. You can sign from a phone, computer, iPad - basically anywhere. I'm impressed with the timeliness of delivery and ease of use.

Cons

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • There are so many bells and whistles it can be intimidating.
  • It is not a product you just pick up and use, there is some training needed.

  • They set some maintenance timeframes at the end of the month. However, when I’ve complained, they have adjusted.
  • Have had a couple of outages – not major, but noticeable.
  • It is not easy to tell when you are in the preview screen if you’ve made a mistake.
  • The software has the ability to place fields on the document. If you drag a field to edge, it disappears, and you think it’s gone but it’s not really gone, and it shows up to the client somewhere else in the document. This can be confusing to new users.

This would be a 9 or 10 except towards the end of 2012, there were several outages, one that was significant. EchoSign has taken steps to rectify this but they really should have handled both the outage and the subsequent communication better

The best types of training are well integrated into the product and Echosign does this well. As mentioned earlier in my review - there are some areas of functionality that can be difficult to understand ("only I sign") for the novice user.Other areas such as macro usage, bulk signature and so on were easily learned and understood via the online tools.

It's very important to identify areas that will expose as many users as possible to your e-signature platform. Even if your goal is to automate the more common areas such as sales... take the opportunity to utilize the functionality across your entire contract and agreement spectrum... you will maximize your ROI and often identify new areas of opportunity to leverage the platform.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

Because LiveCycle comes with the Adobe Suite, I've never really looked outside of it because it was something I already had access to.

They are about as good, but Adobe Sign comes with the Adobe Suite, which I use as a Web Designer/ Developer, as a result, I don't have to get yet another solution, and the Adobe Suite becomes a whole lot more valuable.

Return on Investment

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • Having LiveCycle enables me to offer more products in my lineup, so that is always a good thing. Most clients like the idea of being able to purchase a template and then making changes themselves, so I've had quite a few sales here. However it's not really something that will make me rich overnight or anything. It's just a tool that enables me to have different products.
  • If they could figure out a way to improve the limitations in terms of design capability in the form creation process, I could probably leverage this software a lot better since I would use it more.

  • Overall, Adobe Sign has saved us significant time and ensured full completion and compliance with signature capture.
  • A huge improvement over existing processes has been Adobe Sign's capturing workflow dashboard which allows us to at a glance see which signatures are still pending.
