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.

PaperTrail

The functionality that PaperTrail gives you is very important, but there are so many other offerings in the space that it's hard to advocate for PaperTrail over other options. One of the large problems with it is it's a one-off offering, and we need to use it in tandem with other systems.

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.

  • I'd like to see their free tier offer a longer period for retaining logs.
  • Some UI updates would be good, it hasn't changed visually since I started using it 5 years ago.

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.

I only used Logz.io for a very brief time. It seemed a bit more difficult to setup than Papertrail.
