Adobe just announced new Adobe Sign and Adobe Scan features. Check out their official announcement!
New Adobe Sign Features
Adobe Sign is designed to help organizations speed up business and plug into world-class third-party applications that deliver seamless customer experiences.
Today, Adobe rolled out new enhancements for life sciences and pharmaceutical companies, added more forms automation functionality by including a new way to collect online payments, furthered integrations with human resources and announced new cloud-based digital signature partners.
Some of these enhancements include:
Compliance with the life sciences industry: Life sciences and pharmaceutical companies using Adobe Sign can easily and confidently apply the necessary controls to comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11, the globally-accepted regulation for electronic records and signatures in the biopharma industry, through multi-factor e-signature authentication or the more rigorous certificate-based digital signature authentication
Payments incorporated into forms: Customers can easily and securely collect payments from customers as they fill and sign forms.
Integration with SAP SuccessFactors: Create and send offer letters and onboarding forms with Adobe Sign directly from the SAP SuccessFactors workspace to engage the best talent in fast-paced markets. Once signed, approved documents are automatically stored in SAP SuccessFactors for a seamless, end-to-end digital workflow
Cloud-based digital signature momentum: Adobe Sign will work with new certificate digital ID providers to sign securely using their existing identity issued by their bank
New Adobe Scan Feature
To further enhance the digital experience for customers, Adobe has also announced a new feature in Adobe Scan that users have been requesting for – Modify Scan. With this release, users can now add, delete or reorder individual pages and re-crop or re-clean scans saved in Adobe Document Cloud, without using powerful tools like Acrobat or Photoshop.
Adobe Scan automatically detects low light conditions and turns on your flashlight to capture a clear, bright image, every time. The app even recognizes and lightens dark shadows, including that pesky shadow of your hand taking the photo. No more worrying about finding the right light.
Adobe also improved the overall capture, cropping, and cleaning of scans in any light, powered by Adobe Sensei machine learning.
As the workplace of the future unfolds and digital transformation takes hold both at the office and in our personal lives, smartphones and tablets are increasingly relied upon to get real work done from anywhere – whether digitizing tax documents, capturing receipts to submit an expense report or getting a sales contract signed before the quarter ends. People need powerful, integrated mobile apps and services that help them be more productive no matter where they are.
Addressing this need, Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE) unveiled on June 1, 2017, major innovations in Adobe Document Cloud, delivering intuitive experiences that help people get work done from anywhere. Document Cloud lets you work across its integrated cloud services, mobile and desktop apps.
Leading the new line-up are innovations in Adobe Sign, setting a new bar for ease of use and mobility, and Adobe Scan, a new free app that delivers a modern document experience, turning your mobile device into an intelligent scanning and text-recognition tool.
