More and more information is being generated, shared and consumed in documents than ever before. Working with online forms, collaborative PDF reviews and signatures are the everyday norm for business professionals who were once simply content creators. IT departments need to support these changes while maintaining and maximizing the use of existing infrastructures and systems, as well as provide support and services that enable their organizations to take advantage of new business opportunities, improve results, justify return on investment, and lower the total cost of ownership. Software company Adobe (News - Alert) Systems is addressing this issue, with the launch of Adobe Acrobat XI software with cloud services.
Adobe Acrobat XI is a powerful PDF solution that addresses productivity gaps across devices and platforms. Products included in this release are: Acrobat XI Pro, Acrobat XI Standard, Adobe Reader XI and newly integrated document services, Adobe Forms Central and Adobe EchoSign.
“Being able to do complex things on the fly, like signing a document electronically or commenting on a document on an iPad, is very attractive to people. Acrobat XI makes that possible,” Yvonne Willis, enterprise applications and project manager, Pillsbury Law, commented in a statement.
Adobe Acrobat XI has new and improved features and functionality for business professionals including the ability to edit PDF files by simply clicking and dragging using the new, intuitive Edit Text and Images tool; merging select content and multiple documents into one organized PDF file, while retaining source file integrity; simplifying forms creation, distribution and results analysis using the included Adobe FormsCentral desktop app; working with PDF files across tablets and smartphones in touch-friendly Adobe Reader to annotate and add comments, as well as fill in, sign and save forms. Users can also save PDF documents to PowerPoint, Word or Excel files or reuse parts of entire PDF files as Microsoft (News - Alert) Office documents and Web pages without retyping or need to reformat.
Additionally, this revamped version comes with improved protection of all PDF files created from Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and Excel to help prevent copying, editing, or printing without permission.
