Adobe advances Microsoft partnership with new innovations

Adobe announced new enhancements to Adobe Document Cloud with advancements for Adobe Sign and new PDF integrations across Microsoft Office 365. 

Adobe Sign is now more deeply integrated with Microsoft Dynamics 365, providing real-time access to customer details from LinkedIn Sales Navigator and more automated sales processes. 

Adobe Sign is now also the first Cloud Service Provider in the industry to receive FedRAMP Tailored authorisation that meets the government’s rigorous security standards, so Adobe Document Cloud can be quickly deployed across U.S. Federal agencies. 

With new PDF integrations, all Office 365 users with a subscription to Adobe Acrobat DC for teams or enterprise will now have the ability to create, manipulate, and view high-quality, secure PDFs right from the ribbon in online versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft SharePoint.

Adobe VP Ashley Still says, “Whether onboarding an employee, signing up a new customer, or completing a critical sales contract, great experiences start where the document does, in Adobe Document Cloud. 

“As leaders in document and productivity software, Adobe and Microsoft are integrating best-in-class cloud services like Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Adobe Sign and now Adobe Acrobat DC to meet the needs of today’s agile and rapidly evolving workforce.”

Adobe, working with Microsoft, is delivering digital document experiences to millions of joint customers, supposedly changing the game in workforce productivity.

Microsoft Office 365 VP Ron Markezich says, “Microsoft and Adobe share a common vision of the workplace of the future—one that is centred on teamwork and collaboration. 

“Building on the initial success of our partnership focused on Adobe Sign, we’re thrilled that Microsoft Office 365 customers now have access to the expansive PDF services from Adobe, right within the tools they use every day.”

Last September Adobe Sign became Microsoft’s preferred e-signature solution for Office 365 and is integrated across Microsoft’s portfolio, including Microsoft Dynamics 365. 

Industry response to the partnership has been strong, and Adobe Sign now enables over half of the Fortune 100 with fast and secure signatures, contributing to the more than 8 billion electronic signature transactions that were processed through Document Cloud in the past year alone. 

In the coming weeks, Adobe Sign will be live on Azure.
