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

It's good when establishing a process improvement capability, to crowdsource the as-is processes. Great for ongoing knowledge management and for keeping processes up to date with review and improvement. Can be a bit political inside the organization, with old procedures manuals and other frameworks that need to be aligned to.

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • 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.

  • It very well may be marginally dubious to look for data on the off chance that you don't have the foggiest idea about the correct wording for things (which I shockingly don't yet as I am just new to the position)
  • Mysteriously, some problems that we thought we closed the door on have come up again, so we've needed to return to what we've already finished
  • Can't view or add revision to old activities/sign offs.

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

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 was chosen by the business, principally for its convenience. While for specialized BPMN displaying and recreation iGrafx was extraordinary, it isn't receptive and at the time the permit demonstrate was not helpful for big business rollout.

Return on Investment

  • 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 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.
