Adobe Systems has introduced the Adobe Acrobat X software family ‚ Acrobat X, Reader X, the Acrobat X Suite and new document exchange services at Acrobat.com ‚ that lets professionals create higher quality content, driving tighter collaboration and productivity across teams in today’s business environments.
‚Companies today need to work with their customers and partners in multiple time zones, languages and cross-functional teams,‚ said Melissa Webster, analyst, IDC. ‚Seamless, fluid content creation and collaboration is critical to how organisations use, repurpose and share information ‚ it is no longer a ‚nice to have’ ‚ it is an imperative to success in today’s business world.‚
Acrobat X delivers new guided Actions to simplify multi-step document preparation and publishing processes: completely new customisation capabilities in PDF Portfolios unify multiple file types into a compelling presentation. New document services available at Acrobat.com give individuals the ability to collaborate more efficiently. Integration with Microsoft SharePoint enables consistency of PDF documents across the enterprise: re-use of content is now easier with higher quality export to Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.
