Emailing forms with overlays, easy to create overlays.

Emailing forms with overlays, easy to create overlays.

Pros

We purchased this software to replace another package we were using for our forms overlays. The graphic designer made laying out the overlays very easy. One things we wanted to do was to be able to email the forms that had overlays and this product did that. In addition we can modify the overlays via green screen or the graphic designer which is very useful. We also purchased the add on modules to do emailing of the form as well as create PDF's. EZeDocs is very powerful and we found new ways to use it that were not aware it could do. For example I was looking for a way to monitor an output queue for a spool file with a specific formtype and then send the spool file in PDF to the IFS. EZeDocs made that a snap and I had it running it less than 10 minutes. Support on the product is fantastic and their support people get back to you right away.

Cons

Because the product can do so much, sometimes you can get lost understanding how to make something happen. For example we had a multi-page form and it took us sometime to figure out all the nuisances to make that work. I would like to see a better tutorial that gives examples of simple form overlays to more complex ones.

Software has been reliable and worked as advertised

Reviewed on 2017/11/16

Pros

We have been using Acom software since 2006 for payroll and finance checks, PO's, employee contracts, W2's, and 1099's. Since most of these forms only change occasionally, we are not required to use the software on a regular basis. Even so, the GUI designer is easy enough to use that there is no "re-learning" curve.

Earlier this year we bought the EzEmail product to begin emailing purchase orders to vendors instead of mailing hard copies. Our process is a bit complex, but Acom's support folks were readily available and helped us make the necessary modifications. We have experienced almost zero issues since we went live, way less issues than I expected.

Cons

My biggest complaint: When first installed, we were charged a single annual maintenance fee even though we had the software installed on our test and production machines. At some point several years ago, Acom began charging the fee for each installed partition. To avoid the double fee, we removed the software from our test box. I realize that this is probably pretty standard, but it makes it a hassle when we want to test a change to a form as we are now required to obtain a temporary license from Acom to use the software on our test box.

Regarding actually using the software, what I like least is the inherit cryptic commands when using it on the iSeries. Our most recent experience was with the EzEmail product, and setting up the conditions for emailing our PO's was quite challenging. Although I have detailed notes and screen shots, any modifications to the conditions will again be challenging.

Working with ACOM has been great - software could use some updates to the UI to help with ease...

Reviewed on 2017/10/25

Pros

That I can have invoices routed to managers for approval. All documents stored in one place.

Cons

The workflow updates. It is impossible for me to self manage our workflow with out getting someone involved from ACOM. It takes a long time to set up a work flow and if we have changes to budgetary approvals - a workflow needs to be changed and most of the time it is not just switching a person - but changing the workflow all together. Would also like it to be easier to upload items into the correct folders. There are many steps that have to be made to upload.

Also - on the Process Flow page it would be nice to have more info about the invoice - IE. PO number, value, general description. This would aid approvers in the process and help expedite there approvals.

Creation of forms and PDF documents

Creation of forms and PDF documents

Pros

Your customer service department is one of my favorite to call. They take their time to answer all of my questions. They have never made me feel like the questions I have are wasting their time. Thanks you. The software is fairly simple to use forms are easy to create. EzDesigner Pro does a great job of duplicating what is printed and works well.

Cons

My biggest complaint would be when I was required to buy EZDesigner Pro while paying maintenance on the previous version. I think that should have been an upgrade on maintenance not a repurchase. As for the ezDoc software, the most helpful change would be the ability to start print spools from a specific page #. One of my most common examples would be when we are printing a group of forms/checks and we have a printer issue I must restart from the beginning each time. A few weeks ago I printed 140 check 4 times just to get the last 10. Also it would be nice if I could create files in the Tiff format, my need for this may be going away.

We save on having to have pre-printed checks and forms.

We save on having to have pre-printed checks and forms.

Pros

This software handles all of our forms and check printing needs. It is all customizable and easy to change a form or check when necessary. However, the thing I like the most is the customer support. They are great to work with, professional and very knowledgeable.

Cons

Well, I really have to search for an answer to this but I guess I'd have to answer that if you are not trained on the system (I know bits and pieces, but I am not the administrator) it's not entirely intuitive when you have a problem with having to re-print something or you're having trouble with a printer. It always seems to be that whenever the Administrator who knows the system like the back of his hand, is out on vacation; there's a problem with a printer jam or hardware issue and I have to figure out what to do to recover the printing of a form or a check run. However, that being said, their customer support is always ready to help when you need it.
