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.

Kofax Capture

Some of the best uses of: Kofax Capture is making the organization paperless. Redaction of organization's document if being distributed to the general public.It is not suited for applications where the documents being captured are of various formats and layouts and they need to be relied upon for the use of coversheets in order to be digitized.

Pros

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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.

  • One of the things we relied on Kofax was its connector with Oracle UCM and Filenet. It was easy to configure batch classes and set up release scripts to UCM or Filent
  • One other aspect of it was validation scripts based on external Oracle databases. It was very helpful.
  • After removal of dongle, it became easier to maintain the software.

Cons

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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.

  • We struggled with configuring Kofax with AP Automation. We used to receive vouchers in different formats by different companies, by different departments. The people from different departments used to scan those vouchers through regular scanners to a central location, which ended up as image pdfs. We fed these image pdfs through Kofax Capture for character recognition, which was painful as the accuracy of recognition was 50 to 60%.
  • Having a connectors with a workflow tool would be helpful where people can validate and approve the output.
  • More samples and documentation related to use of API in .NET applications would be a good improvement, that would help users to adapt the product easily into their organization.

Cost of Kofax is high, however the cost to benefit scenarios always pay off.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

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

Kofax is quicker when searching mass amounts of documents and data. Any filters would bring up immediate information, whereas in Access the database is slower.

Return on Investment

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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.

  • Kofax Capture is quick to install and running for small installations. When wanting to scale up, however, the product would benefit from SMEs to help implement the solution.
  • Reduced keying and faster turnaround on customer inquiries has helped reduce headcount for handling previously manual processes and reduce the amount of keying error.
  • Proper installation and maintenance of the platform is key to help prevent costly issues from cropping up in the future. Plan ahead and work with a reseller early on in the process.
