Adobe Acrobat has been recognized
as a finalist for 2023 Microsoft Partner of the Year in category of Apps & Solutions
for Microsoft Teams — Modern Work. This award recognizes Adobe’s outstanding
commitment and dedication to drive digital transformation for customers through
implementation of solutions based on Microsoft technology.
Acrobat for Teams allows
you to view, share, and review PDF content right where you already communicate,
without needing to switch between apps. It brings Acrobat to every Teams user,
enabling a better reading experience in the subtlest way, such as, being able
to rotate a page while also ensuring the document is rendered exactly as the
author intended. All too often, work is interrupted, or critical information is
missed because an element like a comment or sticky note is not rendered by a
PDF alternative. As inventors and pioneers of the PDF format, Adobe ensures a high-fidelity
We are democratizing tools such
as highlighting, annotating, and commenting available for free to Teams users.
Acrobat for Teams is not a PDF Reader — the same app is also made for users
with Acrobat Pro/Std entitlements for the final mile actions of protecting,
compressing, and converting documents for publication. With these tools
organizations can effectively collaborate across boundaries in today’s hybrid
world of work - all without compromising on security as the shared
PDFs remain encrypted.
“Seamless experiences are
delivered through seamless partnerships.” said Álvaro Celis, vice president
Global ISV Commercial Solutions, Microsoft. “Together with Adobe, we continue
to unite data, content, and processes, to create, share, and collaborate all in
one place. We want to empower businesses through world class tools that help
drive collaboration, efficiency and productivity.”
“This best-in-class PDF
experience is resonating with users in organizations large and small, with over
a million users now using Acrobat for Teams every month.” said Simon Williams,
vice president, Digital Media Strategic Development & Partner Marketing,
Adobe. “Adobe recognizes the challenges of modern work — the proliferation of
apps in everyday tasks, global round-the-clock collaboration, context switching
across multiple UIs, logins, and devices. All the advancements in empowering
employees with new capabilities are coupled with complexity and the risk of
overloading users. Our approach has been to meet users where they are working,
studying, or browsing. This results in a more mobile workforce, no learning
curves for employees, no difficult deployments, and more value from your
Microsoft and Acrobat investments.”
Exciting updates for users
Adobe is focused on ensuring Acrobat is the
all-in-one-app that simplifies the way you work and communicate through PDFs.
With our Acrobat and Microsoft integrations, the goal remains the same. We have
been hyper-focused on listening to our enterprise customers and making changes
based on their feedback. Some of the recent updates include:
Clean new “Modern Viewer”
experience, consistent with Acrobat on the web and desktop.
@mentions allow you to tag
others while commenting, and automatically notify the tagged user by the app
bot/email right away.
Open in Acrobat Desktop lets
you seamlessly jump to the Acrobat app from personal files, shared files in
OneDrive, SharePoint and channels.
The Acrobat app’s home screen now
does not require you to sign-in to see your Recent files.
Adobe Document Cloud and Microsoft have
worked together on integrating Acrobat, Acrobat Sign and Acrobat services with
Microsoft Edge, OneDrive/SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Outlook, Power Automate,
amongst others. Through these comprehensive integrations, the partnership helps
businesses automate document processes, increase productivity, and enhance
collaboration without compromising on security.
