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.

SOHODOX

For a smaller to medium organization, SOHODOX is a great solution when the need is collaborative storage with advanced searching. The software does a great job of allowing organization via files / folders or tagging. The cost is not cheap, but affordable, and is quick to spin up and use as well as add users as you go.

Cons

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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.

SOHODOX

  • Not a truly scalable software package, best fit for single or smaller organizations up to 15 users.
  • Does not force structure and is less document management and more document storage / organization.
  • Pricing is not cheap but is relative to what you receive, online document storage and advanced access across devices.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

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.

SOHODOX

NetDocuments is the most comparable, as the interfaces are very similar and features match up. Worldox on the other hand, can be much more complex and force much more structure. Worldox is a bigger investment, but scales to large organizations much better. SOHODOX is a superb product for small to medium businesses.

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.

SOHODOX

  • Very scalable, but only to a certain level (1-15 users or so max).
  • Interface and usability are user-friendly, without sacrificing features and power.
  • Advanced tagging and searching allows users to save documents and organize them "their way" without forcing specific workflows.
