Software Giant Adobe has announced major enhancements to “Adobe Scan” and “Adobe Sign” and new portable document format (PDF) integration with Microsoft Office 365.
The enhancements and integrations will be applicable across Adobe Document Cloud, its suite of cloud based-apps and will enable conversion and processing of PDF’s in an easy way. Adobe’s free document scanning app, Adobe scan and its electronic signature service Adobe Sign have also undergone advancements.
With the new Adobe PDF Services integration in Microsoft Office 365, users can now create, manipulate and view high-quality, secure PDFs right from the ribbon in online versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive and SharePoint.
Ashley Still, Vice President Digital Media, Adobe, told IANS that that Adobe and Microsoft are integrating best-in-class cloud services like Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics, Adobe Sign, and now Adobe Acrobat DC to meet the needs of today’s agile and rapidly evolving workforce.
Adobe Scan which was developed by Adobe’s San Jose and Noida, India offices, has been downloaded more than 10 million times since it launched in March 2017.
Now with the fresh integrations it leverages the power of Sensei, Adobe’s in-house machine learning platform, to convert documents, pictures, business cards, and whiteboards to PDF documents.
The company has also claimed that "Adobe Sign" would be part of the "Federal Risk and Authorisation Management Program (FedRAMP)", that complies with the strictest government security standards.
Adobe had become Microsoft's most preferred e-signature solution for Office 365 in September 2017, and now the company would be able to deliver deeper integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365.
