Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
Adobe Acrobat Reader is our company's go-to PDF tool for all the users who do not have the need for the Pro version. The obvious use is to read PDF files, but we also rely heavily on the software to open secure documents, fill out interactive forms and to share and collaborate with other users in the organization. Rather than pay for all users to have the Pro version, we use the free Reader version effectively to save on OPEX.
- Filling out interactive forms.
- Free for non-pro users.
- Printing anything to PDF.
- Adobe cloud document storage.
- Update process can be more streamlined.
- Basic PDF creation would be a plus.
- Collaboration: Allows multiple users to work on the same file passing live comments.
- PDF Forms: We use this feature all the time.
- Free version saves on OPEX!
- You can't beat free, so our non-Pro users can remain in the same ecosystem.
- Time savings: The software just works.
- From the collaboration standpoint: We crank out more work because of this feature.
We selected Adobe Reader because we are already using other Adobe products in house. We have a bunch of Acrobat Pro users that handle the heavier workloads that require the full features like PDF creation, reduced size PDFs, interactive form creation, etc. We did a brief trial with Foxit a while back - and the software worked well - but we decided to remain within the Adobe family because we also use Photoshop and Illustrator for design and Dreamweaver for web development.

In most professional scenarios today, PDF files are the standard file type that gets traded between people and also how final file copies are ultimately stored. Adobe Acrobat is the originator of the PDF file standard, and, in my opinion, is one of the most stable platforms around. From legal firms to anyone who sends contracts, to companies that require forms to be filled out and when you need to have multiple people collaborate on a file, Acrobat has that baked right in.
