Adobe Document Cloud: Making Your Business Digital…And Mobile – Forbes

Over the years, Adobe has been developing technologies to help make your business more digital. While the efforts have been hit-or-miss (which is natural for any tech operator — big or small), the company’s latest offering looks like a winner: Adobe Document Cloud.

Now this is not just another storage solution. Keep in mind that you can actually use the Adobe Document Cloud with applications from Box, DropBox, Google, Apple and Microsoft. The technology is also available for iOS and Android devices.

In other words, with an app you can take a photo and convert it into a PDF, which is completely searchable and editable. With some taps and drags on the screen, you can enter text, crop images or move them. There are also other nifty features, such as Enhanced Scans (which uses algorithms to improve the quality of the image), font matching and text recognition, which can be particularly useful for keeping track of receipts.

The Adobe Document Cloud also remembers where you left off in a process. For example, let’s say you were editing a photo on your tablet. Then later in the day, you go to the document on your laptop. Yes, you will be at the same place (this is known as Mobile Link). This feature alone should be a nice booster for productivity.

Yet the thing that impressed me even more was the built-in eSign Services system. With this, you can easily share a document — from your mobile device or laptop/desktop — to get signatures, which can be drawn on a tablet or entered as text. The recipient does not have to download any software.

In the background, the Adobe Document Cloud tracks everything, which helps to streamline the workflow but also provides a helpful audit trail for compliance.

Let’s face it, the usual approach to handling the signing of documents is often frustrating. But with the Adobe Document Cloud, the process is super easy.
