Adobe’s Document Cloud adds support for Box and Microsoft
Adobe is launching an update to its Document Cloud service today that will bring support for both Box and Microsoft OneDrive to the company’s PDF-centric digital document solution. Adobe previously announced a similar partnership with Dropbox.
Thanks to this partnership, Document Cloud users will now be able to use tools like Adobe Sign, the company’s e-sign solution, with documents stored on these third-party services. Box users will also be able to access their files from Acrobat Reader.
As part of this update, Adobe is also adding a number of new data centers in Europe so that the service now meets new EU guidelines for electronic signatures that will go into effect in the EU in July 2016.
The company also updated its Adobe Sign mobile apps for iOS and Android, and its integration of Adobe Sign with its Experience Manager Forms and Adobe Marketing cloud tools will make it easier for users to fill out forms on mobile (and for businesses to offer more personalized experiences around forms).
“Every company and organization should be laser-focused on delivering the best customer experience possible, and the best experience does not involve paper,” said Bryan Lamkin, Adobe’s VP and general manager for Digital Media in a statement. “Today we further strengthen the value that Adobe Document Cloud and Adobe Sign bring to our global customers as the only complete solution that transforms paper-based transactions into 100 percent digital workflows.”
