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.

PlanPlus Online is great to split regional sales activities. PlanPlus Online is great in office environments but difficult to use on the road.

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.

  • The synching did not always work well, especially for people on the road in remote areas.
  • Offline handling needs to be easier and faster.
  • Very complex CRM.

Alternatives Considered

Because LiveCycle comes with the Adobe Suite, I've never really looked outside of it because it was something I already had access to.
