Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
We currently use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for the majority of our document needs, as we primarily use PDFs internally and for external communication. Prior to COVID-19 restrictions, we used Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for most documents, but its flexibility has helped us navigate the restrictions as we communicate with internal and external users electronically at a greater frequency. Mainly, it provides a helpful tool to edit and organize PDFs, combine documents, request signatures, and approve invoices and the like. In accounting, it makes our approval processes easier, using electronic signatures rather than paper, saving time and resources.
- Ease of use--users at any level of experience can use the basic functions and learn quickly how to leverage advanced features.
- Signatures--Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is a great way to sign off/approve documents or request signatures from others (internal or external), making the process much quicker.
- Compatibility--we can create PDFs from any number of documents and easily provide them to others for any number of uses.
- Some of the more advanced features could use additional descriptions or clarity for newer users. Many users may not take advantage of them without additional knowledge.
- More tools should appear on the sidebar from the initial start of the program. You may customize it, but I'd prefer having the most commonly used tools appear there automatically.
- Digital signing of documents to approve invoices.
- Document management tools, such as combining PDFs, editing PDFs, etc.
- Ability to collaborate on documents with comments, sharing, etc.
- Less wasted paper and resources on the countless number of documents going through the business. This also speeds up the document completion process overall.
- Better use of office space with no need for large filing cabinets, as we can convert important documents electronically and maintain high compatibility.
- Single document type allows for effective learning and level of comfort organization-wide using the PDF format.
One of the main appeals of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is that it is part of the Adobe suite of products and works well with all of their other products. Additionally, the support is second to none and given the large backing of Adobe, we can rest assured that the application will continue to see updates and be a standard bearer for the PDF format. Combine it with the Adobe Creative Cloud and you can save additional costs as well. The robust features and ease of use of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC cannot be matched by the others.

Put simply, everyone should use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, and I don't think any company should live without it. Whether you're going paperless or already are, the flexibility that the application offers feels nearly endless. There has yet to be an instance where I could not use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to manage my documents with internal or external users. Moreover, PDFs open in countless programs, even without Adobe Acrobat Reader DC installed (e.g., in a browser window), and you can be confident that anyone you send a PDF to can work with it with ease. The only scenario where I could see it not working out is based on cost issues if you're a small enough business that it would be prohibitive.
