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.

DocLink

DocLink is a very effective program for processing and maintaining files. It allows the user to scan invoices and documents into the program and move each file throughout the enterprise as necessary for review, approval, notification, etc. It eliminates the need to spend countless hours manually filing paper documents, reduces the need for filing cabinets, reduces issues with missing or misfiled documents, and creates a much more organized and efficient system.

DocLink

  • Maintains all scanned and processed documents since we converted from paper files. 13 years and counting for our company.
  • Able to create custom folders or "workflows" with specific permissions.
  • Able to quickly search using a wide variety of search parameters.
  • Allows the user to make notations, highlights, and digital stamps for future reference.
  • Allows the user to scan or drag and drop documents into the program and will convert to the acceptable format (ie: PDF will convert to TIF).

Cons

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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.

DocLink

  • Need to map fields to process documents, this is a manual process that needs to be automated for the template.
  • Sends thru a print queue, sometimes the queue goes offline and you don't know it right away.
  • Doesn't always tell you if the fax delivery failed, this is partially dependent on the fax software communications.
  • Limited fax support, hard to match up the DocLink server with faxing solution that's compatible when the server is virtual.

DocLink is VERY user-friendly! The daily functions are easily taught to non-financial individuals. It's easy to understand and easy to manipulate with a simple, functional layout. The Administrative module is not too complicated, but it would be more effective if there was a more thorough "help" section or an online forum for users. All of my knowledge is self-taught, trial and error, but it would be helpful for a new user to have an online resource to address questions or issues.

DocLink is quite reliable and effective. Scanned documents are easy to read with very slight loss of integrity. Pages load quickly with occasional lag loading very large files. We use DocLink with MS Dynamics SL, and the two systems perform well together without much interruption or ambiguity in the process. One issue we have is in relation to the number of licenses and issues we have when a session will not close upon exit, thus suspending an available license rendering it unusable. Although very infrequent, IT has had to manually "end" a session to clear the license.

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.
