Today is an exciting milestone for the Adobe Document Cloud as we announce the new Adobe Scan app, and new mobile functionality for Adobe Sign, the leading solution that makes it easy to automate document-based processes. Both Adobe Scan and Adobe Sign are key parts of Adobe’s mission to deliver innovations that enable our customers to transform their digital experiences. My colleague, Lisa Croft, shares easy steps to get started with Adobe Scan in her blog, and I’d like to talk to you about some of the industry-first innovations we are bringing to Adobe Sign, as well as new and extended integrations with leading industry applications.

Through our ongoing conversations with customers, we hear about four big pain points for leading brands in their digital transformation journey:

Let me start by highlighting key innovations that we are delivering that will help our customers solve those four pain points:

Cloud Based Digital Signatures

Like I mentioned earlier, ensuring compliance is a top priority for our customers. The momentum behind the Cloud Signature Consortium is integral to helping them meet the most rigorous, global verification and regulatory standards. In February, we unveiled a preview of the first cloud-based signatures built on an open standard. Today we’re announcing full availability by mid-June. The specification has been adopted quickly by a number of global trust service providers with the notable additions of ATOS Worldline, a global leader in e-payment services, GlobalSign, a worldwide provider of certificate-based digital IDs, and Trans Sped, a SAFE Biopharma-certified digital ID provider in Europe, with many more coming on board. The work of this ecosystem of partners will continue to bring the most secure, compliant digital signatures to 7 billion mobile devices and web apps worldwide.

Partners in Accelerating, Simplifying Signatures

Two other customer pain points – doing more with mobile and delivering a seamless, cross-screen experience – drive how we and our partners accelerate and simplify document workflows. Our joint customers rely on Adobe Sign to work where they do, using the systems and processes that they already use today. Adobe already offers integrations with industry leaders including Box, Microsoft, Salesforce and Workday, and customers are reaping the rewards. Today we’re excited to announce new and expanded integrations with the following global partners. All are expected to be available over the coming months.

Here’s what one of our partners has to say about our work together:

“Apttus is looking forward to extending even more value to our customers by connecting our world-class Quote-to-Cash platform to Microsoft Dynamics and Adobe Sign,” said Kirk Krappe, CEO, Apttus. “Our goal is to help companies escape confusing, time-consuming paper-based processes that are typical for contracts and agreements, and focus more on driving revenue. Integrating with Adobe Sign is a critical step to achieving that.”

As you embark on the journey to transform your businesses to provide better experiences for your customers, you can rely on Adobe to be a strong partner. We are committed to solving the most challenging problems be they around mobile productivity or standards compliance or automating processes through continued innovation.
