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.

Worldox GX4

Worldox is well suited for any company looking for document management. It requires training and buy-in from company employees but can greatly improve productivity and organization and reduce clutter on network server storage.

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.

  • Forced structure via hooking into every day applications and producing Worldox Open and Save constructs versus the standard application Open and Save menus.
  • Extreme customization options including cabinets, folders, and document types.
  • The indexing system is very useful for locating documents by name, body, date, etc.

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.

  • Because of its level of integration with applications, this can sometimes have technical issues or software compatibility complications.
  • Standard Worldox does not have built-in remote access. A separate software construct is required to setup a Worldox web client, which more or less involves "checking out" files versus working on them remotely. Enterprise Worldox is required for true online collaboration and remote access.
  • The software will have strange bugs and behavior from time to time. There are frequent smaller updates to patch code along with eventual large updates (GX 3, GX 4, etc.).

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.

Worldox is the most structured and organized of the software packages. It is primarily an on-premises solution, but it allows for the most customization and has the easiest interface. NetDocuments has a much higher price tag and is fully cloud-based. NetDocuments also allows customization but does not force structure. iManage primarily works through Outlook for its interface, and also does not force structure. SOHODOX is a good solution but is not quite as feature-rich as Worldox. IBM Watson is less document management, but more so document indexing and searching. It is definitely on par with Worldox as far as indexing and searching go.

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.

  • Greatly improved productivity for users via searching, favorites, and forced organization.
  • Versioning and document preview can also improve productivity versus opening individual files.
  • Can require a "revolutionary" change in the workflow as the application's Open and Save prompts are radically different than normal application usage.
