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.

ContractZen

ContractZen is perfect for a team or SMB use case. We use it to store all contracts: HR, services bought, subcontractors and sales. The benefits are somewhat different for different types of contracts, but having all in the same place is a benefit in and of itself.

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 easy storage of contracts is important. Easier than a shared hard drive folder or a jointly administered Excel sheet, both of which we tried to use in the past.
  • The alerts of key contract dates is crucial. Knowing what needs to be terminated or at least considered has saved us money.
  • Simple signing of contracts electronically has saved us money in getting from an agreed to contract to a signed one in minutes.

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.

  • The iPhone application is underpowered, I suggest using the web version also on mobile devices.

The data is stored and presented in a logical fashion. The main screens are straightforward and simple. The email to sign -functionality with the signing directly on a mobile device is easy enough to get some real traction.

The capture of the new contracts is more important than the old contracts, somewhat counterintuitively. Once you start saving time using the electronic signing and retrieval, adding old material is easier. Old material additions fit our annual schedule as we've done them during periods of less administrative work.

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.

ContractZen is true value for the money and far more simpler than more advanced systems

Return on Investment

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

  • We've gone faster from agreement to invoicing thanks to the electronic signing.
  • Some of the alerts have saved us money as we've been able to terminate SaaS services prior to being billed for yet another year.
  • Being able to review contracts made by other team members has reduced friction and unnecessary emailing of contracts. This has saved time from busy executives and sales persons.
