Adobe Systems Incorporated has just unveiled brand new Acrobat XI software with cloud support. On a recent blog post, Adobe has confirmed the availability of this software. Adobe believes that their latest Acrobat software would be able to meet the growing demand for complex PDF documents and to share them across all devices and platforms.
Adobe Acrobat XI will feature complete PDF editing and exporting them to PowerPoint. They also added the touch-friendly capabilities for tablet devices, sophisticated web contracting with Adobe EchoSign and forms creation, data collection and analysis with Adobe FormsCentral.
Productivity inefficiencies and cost of document-based challenges has been highlighted in a recent global ID White Paper which states that a typical company with 1,000 employees has a productivity cost of US$15.9 million annually. Adobe has redesigned their software to cut down these inefficiency costs for companies.
Focusing on both the Business and IT Professionals, Adobe has integrated lots of new features on this version of Acrobat. Along with modifying the paragraphs, images and objects from the document itself, it will also allow users to save PDF documents as a PowerPoint, Word or Excel file. In terms of security, Adobe promises to provide even greater document protection capabilities than ever before.
Kevin M. Lynch, SVP and GM of Acrobat and Document Services says, “More and more information is being generated, shared and consumed in documents than ever before. Working with online forms, collaborative PDF reviews and signatures are the everyday norm for business professionals who were once simply content creators. IT departments need to support these changes while maintaining and maximizing the use of existing infrastructures and systems, as well as provide support and services that enable their organizations to take advantage of new business opportunities, improve results, justify return on investment, and lower the total cost of ownership.”
