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.

Works fine for accounting but we've found workflow capabilities are limited for those who aren't using our accounting system. License seats need to be concurrent instead of user specific.

Pros

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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

  • Helps keep track of multiple vendors' receipts and invoices.
  • The integration with GP accounting is particularly helpful and it's why we chose the system.
  • Users find the system easy to understand.

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.

  • It would be nice if we could automatically email invoices from KwikTag to responsible parties for approval.
  • Need to provide a web interface that doesn't use up a license seat so other members than KwikTag users can view documents that go with what's been charged to their budget.

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.

We use Laserfiche for our legal and membership services departments. Laserfiche is a full blown workflow and document management system that runs on our own SQL server. Therefore we have much more control of how it's set up and we can customize it more easily.

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.

  • KwikTag has taken a large burden off our AP staff.
  • Documents are readily available for retrieval without having to scan through directories full of files or boxes of paper.
  • Would like to see the ability for others to at least search and view documents.
