Adobe states documents are more than just a collection of information and proof. They are foundational to connecting people and ideas, pushing business forward. Adobe Acrobat keeps users connected to their teams while driving business forward – no matter where they are working.
Acrobat is a PDF and e-signature solution with users among Fortune 500 companies. Acrobat users can create, edit, convert, share, sign, and combine documents from the Adobe platform. It provides for digital experiences that enable team to collaborate and work from any device, anytime, anywhere. Liquid Mode in Acrobat also enables users to view PDFs on small screens without the need to pinch and zoom.
In partnership with Microsoft, Adobe aims to reimagine how work gets done in a modern, secure, and connected hybrid workplace. Acrobat solutions are designed to seamlessly integrate with any preferred Microsoft apps so that users save time by creating, editing, sharing, and signing right from Microsoft 365, Teams, Outlook, and more. It also features smart integrations with Google, Box, and other daily use apps.
Acrobat provides access to file protection features to protect documents from being copied, changed, or printed – for added peace of mind. Acrobat helps organizations comply with security standards and regulatory requirements such as GLBA and FERPA. It also meets ISO 32000 standards for electronic document exchange, including special-purpose standards such as PDF/A for archiving, PDF/E for engineering, and PDF/X for printing.

- Price point - everyone has access to free Acrobat Reader but therefore misses many of the functions only available on DC because it costs too much to invest in on a monthly basis.
- User-friendliness in creating fillable forms. Strangely, this is a basic, yet underdeveloped DC function.
- Ability to subscribe to Acrobat DC only (as in, not a part of the Creative Suite)
Less Appropriate: for clients who are looking for software where they can not only edit but also create documents. Acrobat's strengths are in creating viewable files (based on existing docs created in other software) or editing existing PDF files. If a client needs to create a new document layout, other free programs like Canva are more suitable.
