Adobe Brings Box and Microsoft Integrations to its Document Cloud

By CIOReview | Thursday, April 28, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Adobe has introduced an update to its Document Cloud service, enabling users to integrate their Box and Microsoft OneDrive accounts with the PDF-centric digital document solution. The integration allows Box and OneDrive users to open documents directly from Adobe applications like Acrobat DC or Reader and vice versa. The company has also opened new data centers in Europe in compliance with the EU guidelines for electronic signatures that come into effect in July 2016.

The new partnerships follow in the lines of similar integrations with Dropbox, Salesforce, and others, which were announced earlier. The latest update significantly reduces the duplication of files as changes made in the document gets auto-saved in real-time. The updates are expected to roll out by the end of this month with a deeper integration available by later this year.

In addition, the mobile app version of Adobe Sign, formerly Document Cloud eSign services, is now available for both iOS and Android, the company announced. Adobe Sign for mobile comes with built-in Experience Manager Forms and Adobe Marketing cloud tools letting users fill out forms in a much simplified manner. At the same time the app gives businesses the ability to create a customized experience to fill forms.

“Every company and organization should be laser-focused on delivering the best customer experience possible, and the best experience does not involve paper,” says Bryan Lamkin, VP and General Manager, Adobe. “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.”
