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.

WizeHive Zengine

WizeHive Zengine is a great platform to use for managing research grant applications. Our organization greatly values this resource since we receive a large number of grant applications during each year, and having a place where these applications can be easily tracked and reviewed is extremely beneficial. This platform may not be as well suited for our other departments such as marketing or development because they don't require a review process for their programs.

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.

  • Initially, somewhat challenging to navigate the site and not the most intuitive when creating application portals.
  • Needs more help options and tutorials to make the user experience much easier and smoother.
  • Still some bugs that need to be fixed (including some issues with a few of the filters in application forms).

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.

SurveyMonkey and SurveyGizmo are great to use for other programs and events that require collecting fairly basic responses and feedback, however, these don't provide the level of information and data that is needed for our grants processes. WizeHive provides a number of tools and other benefits that are just beyond these products' capabilities
