  4. 4. Ten Reasons to Upgrade from Adobe LiveCycle to Adobe Experience Manager Forms 4 1. Deliver exceptional smartphone experiences Increasingly, people are using their smartphones to access the Internet for research and to purchase goods and services. More than half of Americans report they have used their smartphone for online banking in the last year. For many citizens served by government programs, a smartphone is their primary—and sometimes only—way to access the Internet. While many organizations have engaging mobile sites, most online forms are still in PDF. LiveCycle PDF forms simulate paper forms, but work best on desktops or laptops. On tablets or smartphones, the user experience is not ideal, leading to greater abandonment and fewer conversions. Moreover, changes to web browser plug-in support are making LiveCycle PDF forms difficult to fill out in modern browsers. To reach potential clients and deepen relationships with existing ones, organizations need to offer ways to convert those mobile users already browsing for information. Adobe Experience Manager forms allows you to use existing form templates to render responsive and engaging forms in browsers—without having to rely on those browsers supporting plug-ins. With the adaptive forms feature in Experience Manager forms, you can offer smartphone users quick, easy and more secure ways to enroll in programs or services and access personalized documents—anytime and anywhere. Get info about a health condition Do online banking Look up real estate listings or info about a place to live Look up info about a job Look up government services or info Take a class or get educational content Submit a job application More than half of smartphone owners have/ used their phone to get health information, do online banking % of smartphone owners who have used their phone to do the following in the last year 62 57 44 43 40 30 18 Pew Research Center.

  5. 5. Ten Reasons to Upgrade from Adobe LiveCycle to Adobe Experience Manager Forms 5 2. Meet demand for multichannel experiences While smartphone Internet usage is skyrocketing, the typical customer journey from research to conversion involves multiple screens and channels. For example, prospects may start their research and service enrollment on a smartphone, but finish it on a desktop. Remembering user information and preferences streamlines the enrollment process and increases conversion rates. Using Experience Manager forms, you can save information already entered in a form and offer users the option to continue later, even on another device. Forms and documents created in Experience Manager forms also automatically respond to devices, offering optimal experiences across tablets, smartphones, and desktops. Prospects can start an application form on one device, and finish it several days later from another, and all their information is preserved. According to the 2014 Adobe Mobile Marketing Survey, many organizations have web or mobile sites. For many industries, having mobile websites is not useful if you can’t convert prospects to customers using mobile-friendly forms. More than 60% of adults use at least two screens a day, while 40% start an activity on one screen and then finish it on another. GfK. 2013. Multi-Device Usage Study. Commissioned by Facebook.

Make it easy to find the right form For potential clients, finding the service they need and then the right form—out of dozens or hundreds—is a daunting task. Experience Manager forms allows you to easily include forms as part of inbound marketing efforts and outbound campaigns, quickly directing prospects to the right service and form. Experience Manager forms integrates with Experience Manager Sites and other web content management (WCM) solutions, helping to ensure your forms are part of a consistent web strategy. Using Experience Manager forms, you can insert a forms portal onto any web page. A forms portal presents web visitors with a list of forms—appropriate for their location and device—that they can browse or search using an integrated search bar. Integration between Adobe Experience Manager and Adobe Campaign allows organizations to share content between digital assets across websites, campaigns and forms—speeding the creation of assets and presenting a seamless and consistent experience to prospects. Outbound marketers can leverage Adobe Campaign to send prospects personalized email offers that include or link to forms that match their interests. With one click, they can begin the enrollment process, even from a smartphone. Your organization can further simplify the form-filling process by leveraging integrated customer profile information from Campaign to prefill some of the form fields, for example a prospect’s name and email address. Send prospects personalized offers and include forms as part of a consistent digital experience. Allow prospects to easily search and find the form they need by exposing all forms in a searchable, customizable forms portal inserted into your website.

Simplify form-filling experiences Once a prospect has found the right form, making the form as easy as possible to fill out increases conversion rates and customer satisfaction. Experience Manager forms automatically presents the right experience for each screen, device and browser. Users can immediately start filling out forms without downloading software, apps or PDF plug- ins for browsers. Experience Manager forms also includes all Adobe LiveCycle features that simplify digital form filling, such as calculations and field prepopulation.

Offer anywhere, anytime access to documents Many organizations use Adobe LiveCycle to generate printed statements or PDF documents for digital delivery. However, paper statements are costly, and PDF documents are difficult to read on smaller devices such as smartphones. Today’s customers are used to having information at their fingertips—no matter where they happen to be. Yet people are often reluctant to give up familiar paper statements. According to a 2013 Forrester Research report, the top reason U.S. investors still want paper statements was to keep them for their records. Organizations that offer compelling, more secure and enduring digital alternatives to paper can dramatically reduce costs associated with printing and mailing paper statements. Upgrading to Experience Manager forms gives you the best of all worlds. Using LiveCycle document templates as a starting point, you can create smart documents that adapt to a user’s screen and dynamically link to other business systems. By logging into a personal web portal, clients can access personalized, responsive, interactive documents—anytime, anywhere, from any device—without downloading an app or browser plug-in. You can link documents to other business processes to allow clients to conveniently access other services, such as making a payment or requesting a change in service. Since each document is based on a template, you can offer clients the option to download a PDF copy for their records. Using Experience Manager forms, you can generate personalized welcome kits, statements and other documents that clients can view on any device—and they can download a PDF copy for their records. 48% of respondents said “I want the paper version for my records” Forrester Research. 2013.

Reuse Adobe LiveCycle investments in apps and forms Adobe LiveCycle customers do not have to disrupt operations to upgrade to Experience Manager forms. Upgrading preserves investment in applications, PDF forms, workflow, correspondence management and document security. For example, you can continue to use existing LiveCycle templates and schemas while also leveraging them to create form and document versions suitable for mobile users. With a few clicks, you can import templates and schemas into Experience Manager Forms and begin developing adaptive forms and documents, using a drag-and-drop interface to place components and their attributes into an adaptive form or document template. As a bonus, you can offer clients the option to download a PDF copy of the completed form or document for their records. Using existing LiveCycle document templates, you can retain familiar-looking PDF statements while also generating web statements that clients can securely access anytime and anywhere.

Yet filling out paper forms in the field and then later rekeying data into systems back at the office is inefficient and can introduce errors. Experience Manager forms includes a mobile app that allows workers with tablets to interact with forms and related information from anywhere, anytime. Caseworkers and inspectors can fill out forms, make notes and take pictures, even while offline. Based on observations, workers can initiate a new process—such as a work order—while in the field. Once the tablet reconnects to the corporate network, captured information automatically synchronizes with the Experience Manager forms server. The Experience Manager forms app securely encrypts all information stored on tablets, meeting privacy and regulatory requirements. Chamberlin Edmonds streamlines complex benefits application processes with Experience Manager forms For over 29 years, Chamberlin Edmonds, an Emdeon company, has worked with hospitals across the United States to help their uninsured and underinsured patients navigate complicated assistance programs. Applying for federal, state and local programs can require vast amounts of paperwork to determine eligibility. Before Experience Manager, Chamberlin Edmonds would meet with clients in hospitals to determine their eligibility, go to the office to complete and print forms, and then return to the hospital for signatures. The process could be stressful for patients as well as challenging for Chamberlin Edmonds staff who had to manually capture and complete many pages of information. Today, with Adobe Experience Manager forms, the company’s representatives can efficiently complete application forms on their tablets—dramatically reducing workflow redundancies. They can enter new information while meeting with patients, as well as download information from existing patient systems to automatically prepopulate certain patient details. Experience Manager forms instantly propagates data across multiple pages, eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same details. Once forms are filled out, patients can sign the forms a single time right on the tablet, instead of having to sign dozens of printed pages. The result—improved experiences for patients and an almost 50% reduction in the time to complete benefits applications.

Continually optimize forms and documents with Adobe Marketing Cloud Adobe LiveCycle works with other business systems to process form information and generate personalized documents. With Experience Manager forms, you can go beyond creating, managing and processing forms and documents. Experience Manager forms is tightly integrated with other Adobe Marketing Cloud solutions, allowing you to easily measure and continually optimize all elements of your digital strategy. Integration with Adobe Analytics helps you gain insight into form and document abandonment, and usage. An out-of-the box report measures prospect interactions with forms and documents, including impression and submission rates. The graphical report lets you drill down into form sections and fields to develop more insight, such as where prospects make the most errors, read help text or abandon the form. With insight into how prospects interact with forms and documents, you can use A/B testing in Adobe Target to optimize mobile form and document experiences. A/B testing lets you test two versions of a form or document at the same time on web audiences, and then choose a winner based on which experience produces the most conversions. Integration with Adobe Analytics provides deep, real-time insight into how prospects interact with forms and documents, helping you improve digital experiences and conversion rates.

Take advantage of flexible deployment options Upgrading to Experience Manager Forms is not a difficult or lengthy process. The first step is converting your LiveCycle license to an Experience Manager forms license. Your organization can perform the technical migration when it’s convenient, while maintaining existing LiveCycle servers and relational databases. Or, you can choose to deploy Experience Manager forms on Open Service Gateway Initiative (OSGi), a Java service platform shared by all Adobe Marketing Cloud solutions. Alternatively, you can choose to deploy Experience Manager forms as a managed service. Adobe is an authorized Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) cloud solutions provider for Experience Manager forms, including document security, as well as Experience Manager Sites for web content management. These Adobe solutions enable government agencies to create outstanding customer experiences and become more efficient while securing mission-critical content across all devices. Purchasing and licensing Experience Manager forms is also simpler than Adobe LiveCycle. Experience Manager forms licenses include all features (except document security, which is available as an add-on), in contrast to the very modular LiveCycle licenses. You don’t have to decide upfront which features you will use in the future, simplifying the decision-making and licensing process.
