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.

Promapp

This software is dedicated in my opinion for large companies with various processes. It makes life easier with process documentation, and is like a database which can be easily accessible to all employees in the company. I have had a good experience with this tool. It is easy to use Promap and training is not time-consuming. Users usually do not have a problem learning how to use Promapp.

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

Cons

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • Biggest issue is the user friendliness for the designer. It is hard to get elements to do what you want if you are adding any sort of design to your form. In my case I make flyers which require not only the form fills, but also other elements like pictures and background design elements.
  • The import from PSD or AI function does not work properly most of the time. If you create a document with lots of visual elements, your best bet is to convert as much of that as possible to a rasterized image and then popping that in as the background rather than trying to import elements. They come out very wonky, colors are lost in conversion, and the layout doesn't come over.

Promapp

  • Bit restrictive in categorizing processes
  • Linking processes together is sometimes a bit counter intuitive
  • Some work required to get users to think end to end about processes

Chat built into the product. Support team is willing to take end user questions also, which lowers the burden to support. There is also great training and help built into the product. There is also a customer success team that touches base semi-regularly.

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.

Promapp

Promapp was selected by the business, primarily for its ease of use. While for technical BPMN modeling and simulation iGrafx was great, it is not approachable and at the time the license model was not conducive to enterprise rollout. Blueworks Live was a middle ground, but we went with the end user preference.

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.

Promapp

  • Promapp is a core component of our business management system and has been used extensively in our ERP evaluation and implementation project
  • The Risk Management features allowed integration with the process management activities and removed the need to acquire a separate risk management tool.
  • The tool is well accepted in the organisation and is the goto reference point for business processes.
