Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Hubdoc

I would recommend Hubdoc in almost any situation, except where Ledger Docs, Neat, or one of the other options out there made more sense with their workflow or with regard to pricing. Also, if most of the documents that are being scanned are handwritten invoices, or similar documents that a computer may have a hard time determining the structure or making out the text body, Hubdoc will likely not handle it well.

Pros

  • 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

  • Retrieve bills and sync them to other systems such as Bill.com or Xero
  • Retrieve client statements from banks/credit card companies

Cons

  • Biggest issue is the user friendliness for the designer. It is hard to get elements to do what you want if you are adding any sort of design to your form. In my case I make flyers which require not only the form fills, but also other elements like pictures and background design elements.
  • The import from PSD or AI function does not work properly most of the time. If you create a document with lots of visual elements, your best bet is to convert as much of that as possible to a rasterized image and then popping that in as the background rather than trying to import elements. They come out very wonky, colors are lost in conversion, and the layout doesn't come over.

  • Ability to upliad or merge multiple pages into one transaction.
  • Keep email with uploaded document. And the ability to separate documents if unloaded together.
  • Better alerts for tabs, ready to review tab and failed alert tab.
  • Add a reporting system. The ability to generate reports.

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.

I selected HubDoc for its ability to collect and retrieve documents remotely.
