Adobe Expands Microsoft Partnership
p>Adobe has enhanced its Adobe Document Cloud with advancements for Adobe Sign, including a deeper integration with Microsoft Dynamics 365, providing real-time access to customer details from LinkedIn Sales Navigator and more automated sales processes.
And with new PDF integrations, all Office 365 users with a subscription to Adobe Acrobat DC for teams or enterprise can now create, manipulate, and view PDFs right from the ribbon in online versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft OneDrive, and Microsoft SharePoint.
"Whether onboarding an employee, signing up a new customer, or completing a critical sales contract, great experiences start where the document does, in Adobe Document Cloud," said Ashley Still, vice president and general manager of digital media at Adobe, in a statement. "As leaders in document and productivity software, Adobe and Microsoft are integrating best-in-class cloud services like Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Adobe Sign, and now Adobe Acrobat DC to meet the needs of today's agile and rapidly evolving workforce."
"Microsoft and Adobe share a common vision of the workplace of the future—one that is centered on teamwork and collaboration," said Ron Markezich, corporate vice president of Microsoft Office 365, in a statement. "Building on the initial success of our partnership focused on Adobe Sign, we're thrilled that Microsoft Office 365 customers now have access to the expansive PDF services from Adobe, right within the tools they use every day."
Last September,Adobe Sign became Microsoft's preferred e-signature solution for Office 365, and is deeply integrated across Microsoft's portfolio, including Microsoft Dynamics 365. Through the deeper integration with Dynamics 365, Adobe Sign and Microsoft Dynamics users can leverage a new interface for quick navigation, real-time access to customer details from LinkedIn Sales Navigator, and automated sales processes by embedding Adobe Sign into multistep Dynamics 365 workflows.
