  • The integration with other Adobe products allows users to maximize productivity. The workflow between apps can be seamless.
  • At first glance, the cost can scare away new users, especially small businesses. Even though InDesign will save money in the long term, it is hard to justify the price tag.

  • Ability to have our files accepted at a broader variety of printers.
  • Ability to sometimes skip printing entirely due to being able to create interactive PDFs, saving on printing costs.
  • Stopped using online flipbook software in favor of robust PDFs, which was a cost savings to our agency as well as clients.

  • InDesign is integral to the way we prepare artwork and publications for our clients. The ROI is essentially 100% positive from the get-go, especially if you're upgrading from older or alternative desktop publishing software.

  • A great ROI for time in my small architectural practice, [especially] when a design has been updated and a report needs to be submitted. We can be submitting many reports that all look similar, clean and beautiful. We just save as the file and replace the images with more updated images. This way the client finds it easy to navigate updated reports, as many as they can be.

  • For a relatively low cost, we are able to produce professional documents in house without having to farm out to a designer.
  • If we didn't already have people experienced with Adobe InDesign it wouldn't provide good ROI. It is a software package that needs qualified employees and if you don't already have one, that can be a large cost...
  • If you use other Adobe products more frequently and have a blanket license that includes InDesign the cost gets mitigated to basically zero.

  • InDesign has been a negative impact financially to us, but it is very difficult to quantify the value of our products looking much more professional
  • InDesign has allowed certain projects to be completed much quicker than before since we started using it. Some project's time at my desk have been cut in half since using this product

  • The learning curve is steep, especially if you haven't used other Adobe products. Be sure to factor in the learning time into your ROI and time calculations.
  • Materials designed with InDesign tend to look more professional than those designed with alternatives like Microsoft Publisher. This tends to improve "curb appeal".

  • Adobe InDesign has helped us to keep up with our clients. Our marketing company focuses more on data and less on creative, so before we started using Adobe InDesign we were behind the curve when it came to assisting the clients with the creative aspects of their direct mail. Now that we use "industry standard" of design tools, we are able to better assist the clients with their creative needs.
  • Adobe InDesign has also helped us be more efficient when creating copy decks for our programmers at our lettershop. Using layers and other aspects that weren't available in tools like Microsoft Word, has made the process of bringing a letter from inception to creation and has caused less "back and forth" between the Marketing department and the Lettershop department when it comes to small details such as font size, placement, etc.
  • The only negative impact I can think of, is that once we started using a more intricate tool like Adobe InDesign, there were some members of the Marketing and Lettershop departments who didn't come from creative backgrounds and had a harder time learning the tool. This learning curve obviously caused some time constraint issues and, for a while, the use of multiple softwares at once to be able to accommodate everyone.
