The PDF format has long been the standard business document format, and for good reason. First released in 1992 by Adobe themselves, it’s entirely platform-independent, meaning that you can view, share, and print PDF files on any operating system without needing additional software on the fonts used to create the document.
But that’s not where the benefits for businesses stop. With the added power of Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can also create PDF files from almost any other format, such as a screenshot, web page, or scanner. Moreover, you can use optical character recognition (OCR) to extract text from image content for easy editing and searchability.
Forms, another key part of operating any business, are also easy to prepare in Adobe Acrobat. You can either import forms created in other programmes, such as Word or Excel, or create them from scratch. Then you can turn them into interactive forms and contracts, complete with the ability to digitally sign the form.
Adobe has worked with Microsoft for more than 20 years to ensure that Adobe solutions perform well for Microsoft users. In 2016, the two companies formed an official partnership to better serve their joint customers. And in 2020, Adobe was recognised as the Microsoft Alliance Global ISV Partner of the Year.
Combining Adobe’s expertise in document management and Microsoft’s industry-leading status in office productivity and cloud solutions, the fusion is helping redefine the future of work, where people are no longer tied to the office desk.
According to ‘The Total Economic Impact™ of Adobe Acrobat Sign’ by Forrester, using Adobe Sign can speed up transactions by up to 30%, accelerate digital enrolments by up to 50%, and significantly decrease customer complaints concerning software processes.
With this partnership in innovative tech, the integration means teams can now effortlessly create, edit, collaborate, and request signatures without the hassle of switching between different applications. Teams can now manage documents directly within Microsoft Word, Teams, or Outlook to ensure that productivity flows uninterrupted.
