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.

Guardian makes completing meaningful reviews very easy. As long as you set up boxes in a given field that need meaningful review it will be there every time you need to do one. If four officers had to use force on a resisting subject, all of the meaningful review entries are done on one entry form. If you find that one officer needs to be retrained in an area you can simply create a new entry and associate the meaningful review as needed

Pros

  • 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.

  • Immediate access to employee performance
  • Allows only members who are affected and their superiors access to employee performance

Cons

  • 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.

  • There should be a means to edit the entry after you have saved it. Sometimes the writer will make an error in spelling and it's permanently saved to the record. Minor issue.
  • Easier way to save entries to your desktop (for proofs).

Alternatives Considered

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.

We haven't had the experience of using other products similar to Guardian. I have heard of other Early Warning software from other agencies, but they don't seem to do as much as Guardian does for us. With Guardian we are able to acknowledge good performance, track poor and note areas where training is needed department wide.
