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.

Pros

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • Ease of use for end users - the forms made from LiveCycle work flawlessly
  • Adding sections dedicated to pictures or other elements - there is some room for design here
  • Variety of choices for types of input to be added to each form and many options for configuring each of them
  • Works REALLY well for forms that just require text information to be filled in

Celonis

  • Provide big picture information and drill down to details, such as actors, cases, documents
  • Combine process discovery data with other business, e.g. controlling data
  • Great user interface
  • Unlike other products such as Minit or Disco, this tool is great at being able to directly enrich the findings with cost or revenue data
  • Easy to build and calculate critical process KPIs and demonstrate the findings to management (decision makers)

Alternatives Considered

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

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.

I have used the process mining software, Minit. Compared to Celonis, Minit does not allow us to enrich process data with other business data, but Minit is a universal process discovery tool. It can be further coupled with PowerBI or similar software for data enrichment. The reporting options and UX are far more advanced in Celonis, but Celonis is purely SAP HANA oriented.

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.

  • Celonis has helped me get rid of unneeded steps within my sales process that have to lead to longer sales cycles.
  • Celonis has helped us identify areas internally where we are not taking advantage of cash discounts.
