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.

UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform

UiPath is well suited to repetitive and rote surface tasks which individuals would usually carry out. This allows the to focus on more complex tasks. The type of rote tasks are form filling, data entry, data copy, for example. UiPath is also well suited to jobs which have many step processes, which they can either handle start to finish, or in parts as an attended robot installed on a users machine

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.

  • Interacts with our surface systems, carrying out actions are staff normally do.
  • They allow us to keep processes the same across the business. Irrelevant of department or experience every robot does the task the same way.
  • It is simple and easy to use, but there are underlying complexities in order to complete more complicated tasks.

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.

Much easier and simpler to implement, however still a very powerful tool. We found that AA had a high knowledge barrier entry to use and we were unable to allocate the right resources to the development of the tool at the time. There is a large online community for UiPath and that encourages collaboration and usage.

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.

  • We have had a high ROI
  • We have buy in across the business into automation
  • UiPath is used for business emergencies, which require a quick fix that there are no users to assist with i.e send correction letters or SMS.
