Adobe LiveCycle ES4

If you are creating forms that you might normally create in Excel, this is an excellent upgrade. PDFs are easy to use and relatively easy to create.

If you are designing a template for any sort of creative piece, LiveCycle is frustrating to use, but it can be done. It'll just require you to have patience and work around the limitations.

KiSSFLOW

KiSSFLOW is well suited for any information heavy paperwork that multiple people approve and have access to complete work. It is less suited for processes that require a lot of back and forth with a form initiator. The workflows like to be very linear without much back tracking. It can do that but it prefers to be forward linear.

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

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.

  • Doesn't integrate with Oracle Cloud CRM
  • Inability to skip sections if it's a required field
  • Error messages at times

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.

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.
