As digital transformation takes hold both at the office and in people's personal lives, smartphones and tablets are increasingly relied upon to get work done from anywhere – whether digitising 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 today unveiled new features in Adobe Document Cloud, delivering intuitive experiences that help people get work done anywhere.

Document Cloud lets people 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 a mobile device into an intelligent scanning and text recognition tool.

“Documents are the lifeblood of society, communicating information that spans contracts, textbooks, financial statements and everything in between,” said Adobe chief technology officer Abhay Parasnis.

“The challenge is unlocking the intelligence that lives in those documents and extracting meaning that can be searched, analysed and incorporated into digital workflows.

“Adobe Scan, powered by Adobe Sensei's intelligent services, represents a critical step toward our broader innovation imperative for Adobe Document Cloud,” Parasnis says.

Adobe Digital Media executive vice president and general manager Bryan Lamkin concurs.

“Adobe Scan represents a radical reimagination of how to capture your most important document content."

“Adobe invented PDF creation for PCs, and with Adobe Scan we're doing the same for a mobile-first world," Lamkin says.

“As part of Adobe Document Cloud, new apps like Adobe Scan integrate with services in Adobe Sign and Acrobat DC, offering a modern document experience of value to our customers.
