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.

We've found that closing deals through Ocitv is very efficient and effective in saving our team time. A small team at our company has been using the beta version to display multiple quotes and proposals through our customized templates. The customization of templates allows multiple teams to leverage the software with little resistance from the client. We work with many legacy companies that still require a formal legal agreement

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.

  • Simple to implement and use. If you're using Word to write proposals, distribute, redline and edit them... you're going to save time on the first proposal you write.
  • Impressive to our prospects. When we distribute our password-protected proposals, our prospects always comment on what a great experience it is.
  • A huge time-saver with its templating capabilities. We have standard engagements with our clients and we're able to control and update the messaging as needed, and still personalize it to each opportunity.
  • A company that listens and cares about their clients' usage. From day 1 at TinderBox, the team has been responsive to our needs.
  • Tracking and measurement show our success rates. We love the fact that we get notified when the prospect opens the proposal and that we can track our team's success.

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.

  • The editing tool which runs the platform is not very user-friendly, so sometimes it's frustrating to make custom wording or formatting changes to a proposal.

It's a fantastic platform as is, but there's always an opportunity to squeeze a little optimization into the fold. I am of the belief that the user should be looking left to go backwards, right to go forwards, up to the right for support, and hitting the menus for other commands. Sometimes I go to advance and I'm hit with the message that I have to save first... so I have to click a button up top to save, then back down to advance. I think a "Save and Continue" in places is appropriate.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

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.

Software as a service was essential. We wanted to be able to manage all assets centrally without having to go back and forth with documents.
