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.

Conga Composer

There are so many opportunities to use Conga, and that's what I love about it. We use it for a few of our documents, but now I've become aware of how many more of our processes we can move from manual entry to automative processes. It's probably well suited for organizations that use word documents, write ups, and other items- probably wouldn't be well suited for organizations just needing to see the numbers

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.

  • Preview mode (in SF classic, it's currently available in SF lightning)
  • Displays error message from time to time (even when it correctly downloads)
  • Could edit/preview before I download the document

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.

I did not evaluate any other software that competes with Conga Composer. This solution was brought to my attention by our Salesforce implementation consultant as an excellent program to accomplish multiple goals across our organization.

  • It provided a consistent quote template...everyone's quotes looked like we wanted them to.
  • It protected data integrity by controlling the output formats (i.e. PDF vs. Word).
  • It worked seamlessly behind the scenes making it easy for the team to be self sufficient generating documents.
