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.

Skuid

For anyone looking to build customized user experiences quickly on Salesforce.com and who don't have access or budget for developers then Skuid is an excellent option. Although some investment in license costs and learning is required the pay off comes with the sheer speed and volume of applications that can be built and delivered to the business in short time frames.

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.

  • Skuid is constantly developing, so if the feature you need isn't available, it's likely coming soon on the roadmap.

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.

Skuid doesn't require a developer to adjust. It's easier to implement.
