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.

Process Director

We use BP Logix Process Director to send out self certification emails to our vendors. This used to be done manually. Since we've implemented the forms system, the process is much easier and less time consuming for our employees.

Pros

  • 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 drag and drop area of a workflow makes the product easy to use and makes the process easy to visualize.
  • The ability to save submitted forms as PDFs and attaching them to an internal system.
  • Allowing custom SQL commands allow interaction with internal systems.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Having a record of sent emails in a process would be helpful.
  • A "scrubber" for PDF names would be helpful. Acrobat does not like to open items with particular characters in a file name.

Alternatives Considered

I have only ever used LiveCycle for our PDF form creation. I am not sure what other options there are, but we have never needed to look into anything else as LiveCycle works for us.

BP Logix Process Director has a much superior workflow designer and the ability to design forms that mimic paper based forms.

Return on Investment

  • LiveCycle has ensured that we are able to get a lot done, with little manpower.

  • I can only speak of the process I am responsible for, positive notes: the automated forms frees up our employees to do other work.
  • The return rate of our self certification form has increased since we've gone electronic.
