Adobe on Tuesday announced new features for several goods in its Adobe Document Cloud package of apps. The company unveiled a revamped Adobe Acrobat Document Cloud with elements such as a central hub and connected mobile apps. Innovations introduced by Adobe comprise a new service for compact document reviews, touch-enabled editing on tablets, and new Adobe Sensei-powered functionality using AI (artificial intelligence) for Adobe Scan and Acrobat DC. Additionally, the Adobe Scan app has become new functionality including business card scans from multiple languages, type field recognition, and much more.
Together with the newest Adobe Acrobat DC, users can now quickly share a PDF and keep track of who has visited it, distribute content together with relevant reviewers, and set automatic reminders to maintain approvals on schedule. Not just that, the reviewers may also comment and resolve feedback within the PDF itself, preventing redundant and duplicate email threads.
The revamped core hub syncs across the Acrobat DC desktop program, Acrobat Reader mobile app, along with the Adobe Document Cloud Internet app. It provides a single view into position updates on incoming and outgoing tasks which were shared for review or those that require your signature.
In terms of Adobe Scan, the app can now read business cards and scan then into PDFs in five languages – including French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. Powered by Adobe Sensei, kind field recognition has been introduced that analyses documents to recognise things like field type, size, and position.
Adobe Sign is now built in directly on the new Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader. Users may utilize Adobe Sign to make digital signatures on PDF documents while on the go. Lastly, Acrobat DC Guru mobile users are now able to edit PDFs on Android and iOS tablets with performance such as change format, text and edit, or add, rotate, and resize picture.
“Adobe Acrobat DC is the golden standard for today’s mobile and connected workforce,” said Bryan Lamkin, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Digital Media, Adobe. “With this strong release, we have created a contemporary PDF platform that enables people to scan, sign, edit, share, and review content quickly and easily wherever work takes them.”
