As the workplace of the future unfolds and digital transformation takes hold, we increasingly rely on smartphones and tablets to get our work done– 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 – Adobe emphasized when revealing its major innovations in Adobe Document Cloud.
Document Cloud lets you work intuitively 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, that turns your 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 Abhay Parasnis, chief technology officer, Adobe. “The challenge is unlocking the intelligence that lives in those documents, and extracting meaning that can be searched, analyzed 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.”
Now you can turn your phone or tablet into a scanning tool that automatically recognizes text or capture images in a snap and transform them into brilliantly clear Adobe PDFs, as with Adobe Scan you can:
- Scan anything into high-quality PDFs with your mobile device. Automatically capture a shopping receipt, paper document, business card or whiteboard, or choose an image from your camera roll and Adobe Scan will do the rest. Powered by Adobe Sensei’s intelligent services, Adobe Scan automates boundary detection, auto-crop and capture, perspective correction and auto-clean, removing shadows and making text crisp and clear.
- Capture scanned text with free automatic text recognition (OCR). Snap a picture of any document or anything with printed text and Adobe Scan will automatically convert it into digital text that can be selected, copied or annotated with Acrobat Reader DC or Acrobat DC. The content then becomes searchable and reusable in a secure and reliable Adobe PDF.
- Use the free Adobe Scan app and a free Adobe Document Cloud account to automatically upload, store, share and access your scanned files online. Subscribers to Acrobat DC can also unlock powerful functionality to edit and organize documents, collect signatures and much more. Scan on your phone and upload to Document Cloud to edit on your laptop then continue working with the document on your tablet. And take advantage of new mobile functionality in Adobe Sign to automatically sign and send documents from any device.
“Adobe Scan represents a radical reimagination of how to capture your most important document content,” said Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. “Adobe invented PDF creation for PCs, and with Adobe Scan we’re doing the same for a mobile-first world. 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 with unprecedented value to our customers”, he concluded.
Available on iOS and Android, Adobe Scan connects you to the world’s best PDF services, created by the people who invented PDF.
