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.

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.

  • Reporting functionality needs to be improved. Extraction of reports is sometimes difficult due to limited options for search criteria.
  • ContractRoom is new system so it is normal to get stuck sometimes but this will get resolved in their new release.
  • Sometimes its advanced search function doesn't work properly. But when we report it, it gets fixed in real time. So this is something that needs to be addressed. Otherwise the product is very useful.

Alternatives Considered

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

ContractRoom is a subscription base model which helps have access to this software without having any financial impact to our business. We can purchase the license that we want and pay accordingly.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • ContractRoom has had a positive impact on our internal business following within our organization.
  • ContractRoom is a subscription-based model making it easy to use.
  • ContractRoom provide complete customer support which is again a plus.
