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.

Legalesign

Legalesign is well-suited for sending out documents to be signed, especially if multiple signatures are needed. Our sales team has had a lot of success utilizing Legalesign when sending contracts to potential clients. Additionally, it's a great option for organizations wanting to send out official offer letters to be signed. Legalesign is not well suited if you're looking for a long-term storage system for documents. I would recommend downloading your documents once they're signed and storing them within a secure system of your own.

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

Legalesign

  • Legalesign is very easy to use - uploading documents is simple. You just click where you want the signature box to go and can add the signer's information. Adding multiple signatures is also quite easy.
  • Once documents are sent, you receive live updates when the recipient opens docs, reviews, signs, etc. This is helpful when they are time sensitive.
  • Documents are stored within the system and can be accessed/downloaded at a later time.
  • I appreciate the simplicity of the design - it's not overly flashy, like other platforms.

Cons

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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.

  • Archives - after a certain amount of time, documents are archived. It's difficult to determine when this happens. If you need to access an archived item, Legalesign says it will take 'several hours' to retrieve the document. I've waited up to 12 hours for a document to be pulled. This is inconveniently and a bit odd.
  • The dashboard can be confusing - there is a timeline with your 'recent' documents, but I've never been able to determine how it shows documents. They're always out of order and some new, some old. It can be confusing.
  • Overall, I've had issues with the internal timeline of this software. There are dropdown menus for choosing the dates of the documents you want to see (7 days, 30 days, last month, etc.), but I'm often missing documents and have to perform several searches for them. Other members of the team have had this issue, as well.
  • Like the archive issue mentioned previously, there have been times when the platform has moved very slowly. Documents will often take time to load, even if they're just a 2-page Word document. This does not appear to be a connectivity issue.
  • The dashboard itself can just be a bit confusing. There is a lot of information available, but the algorithm that determines what is displayed is strange, and it's hard to determine what you're seeing/why you're seeing it. There are settings you can play with, which has been helpful.
  • Although it hasn't happened often, I have had candidates/new employees not recognize an email coming via Legalesign. Document emails look a bit like spam, so I've had candidates ignore them. As far as I know, these are not customizable. I ensure recipients know the email is coming.

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.

Legalesign

Legalesign is our preferred method of signing/sending documents. It's easy to use and saves a lot of headaches when it comes to getting signatures on contracts/offer letters/documents. Additionally, we've found it to be cheaper than other similar platforms, even for multiple licenses. There are certainly areas for improvement (archive efficiency, dashboard set up, etc.), but we do not foresee our organization moving away from Legalesign any time soon

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.

Legalesign

  • Legalesign has had a positive impact on our ability to sign new employees. It's fast and easy - which is essential when hiring top talent.
  • The only negative impact would be the slow pace we've experienced when trying to pull previous documents. However, we do not use this platform as our only storage option, so this issue does not arise often.
  • Legalesign allows for the seamless transfer of information with prospects, which has a large impact on our ROI. Having a system like this makes getting signatures from new clients quick - essentially for a busy sales team!
