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.

I just love being paperless! It's perfect for organization and having everything in one place. Plus I feel like it is more professional to have it all electronically

Pros

  • 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

  • Easy to use (and modify) templates. We were able to tailor our contracts quickly to our clients' needs.
  • Excellent communication - we were always able to track where our contracts were in the delivery/completion process.

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.

I have used SignNow's mobile app for years. It has made it extremely easy to sign and save contracts and verify personal training sessions. The app works wonderfully. If for some reason the app closes before all signatures are completed, it automatically saves them.

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.

I have not used any other electronic signing service. I did research before signing up with SignNow, and I've been super satisfied so I haven't felt the need to switch or shop around.

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.

  • It's a very positive impact: we save on printing and paper costs on both the sender and signer's side. We're a tech company. It's nice NOT to have to rely on paper 100% of the time.
