That’s why Adobe — building on their history of transforming document workflows with the PDF — set out to create a new global standard with Adobe Acrobat Pro, an all-in-one PDF and unlimited e-signature solution that enables teams to collaborate across devices while working in hybrid settings.
Hybrid work provides numerous benefits for both employees and companies. A 2022 McKinsey survey found that when people have the chance to work flexibly, 87% of them will take it.
Not only do flexible arrangements promote better work-life balance, but the switch to digital workflows can increase business efficiency. In another survey, McKinsey found that 83% of employees working remotely agreed that they could be more productive at home, because avoiding unnecessary distractions led to uninterrupted workflows.
And, the right IT investments can make those workflows even more seamless. With Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can provide remote and hybrid teams with document and e-signature tools that work across desktop, web and mobile. Users can work on PDFs online, take action from their mobile device and do more from their desktop, thanks to integrations with the productivity apps they use every day.
Adobe Acrobat Pro lets you create documents, combine multiple PDFs into one and send them for signature, all from inside Microsoft 365. Plus, you can convert PDF files to editable Word, Excel, PowerPoint or RTF files and work on PDFs directly within Microsoft Teams, saving time and letting you take full advantage of the apps you rely on.
According to a study conducted by Adobe, 67% of small and midsize business leaders agree that every minute counts for their business more than ever before. Surveyed workers and leaders said that unimportant tasks get in the way of performing their jobs effectively, including:
Drawing on these insights, Adobe added new capabilities to Acrobat Pro. Powerful integrations with industry-standard systems and applications let users collaborate on documents, review and comment without the need for lengthy email chains. Teams can take advantage of templates and automation for routine tasks like reports and forms and quickly send invoices or sign approvals, from any device, anywhere — making every minute truly count.
Adobe has also streamlined the electronic signature process by building powerful e-sign capabilities into Acrobat Pro. Customers and collaborators can sign any document from any device — no downloads or signup required. A quick click, tap or swipe lets you approve contracts, close deals and move faster on strategic decisions.
The benefits of e-signatures compared to traditional pen to paper signing are numerous, including:
Flexible and remote work frameworks are not only essential for your digital maturity — they also deliver a better employee experience that supports talent recruitment and retention. When you support hybrid work with innovative, all-in-one solutions that support your routines, devices and cybersecurity posture, you’ll modernize the employee experience and accelerate the pace of business.
