Adobe Acrobat is best for sharing graphic designs with people who do not have the native software to open graphic files. Adobe Acrobat is also great at capturing signatures for important documentation (like contracts, reviews, etc.). The software could improve its direct editing tools and make them a bit easier to use.

Adobe Acrobat makes PDF editing and document scanning very easy. The ability to export files through multiple file formats is amazing, and the tool is a great one for batch file conversion, saving project time. The file preview functions are reliable, and the platform allows easy management of different project documents.

If your organization uses PDFs frequently, then Adobe Acrobat feels like must-have. I could not imagine our organization not using it. The ability to create, organize, and edit PDFs easily and intuitively are the main reasons my organization uses it. The other additional functions and features are "nice to haves", but ultimately, don't impact our day-to-day.

Acrobat is the best option in the industry. It's not perfect but it's really good. It's an Adobe product so it integrates seamlessly with other Adobe applications. As a graphics professional it is great for displaying artwork, reviewing, commenting, and signing. It also makes large artwork files smaller for easy sending and display.

Viewing, creating, editing and combining PDFs are some of the most key and valuable features that are offered by Adobe Acrobat. Everyday at workplace, individuals need to review a lot of PDF files related to work and thus Adobe Acrobat is solving problems on a very large basis.

Although Adobe Acrobat is a great tool there are many options that are free that offer the same service. If the service is free in tools that are already being used such as Google Docs or Drive then there isnt a need to use Adobe Acrobat. When it comes to signing documents we favour docusign and preview for internal signing.

This Adobe Acrobat tool is an easy and very stable product and the features capability like forms management and easy content creation and also content editing through this package is productive. The reports are easy to obtain and share different data with other teams professionals and to provide accurate and clear document with the product is amazing.

While I would caution that Adobe Acrobat could lead to occasional system issues due to the amount of system resources required on low powered corporate laptops, these are rare. Acrobat is great for viewing PDFs and annotating. It's the perfect platform to create and edit PDFs, and it is easy to use as a team and share comments around as well. It also works well in trainings as we can have some documents open across multiple windows on both screens that are shared and not shared without unecessarily bogging down systems.

I recommend Adobe Acrobat because many companies already subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, so with that they already have a powerfull tool for their PDF editing needs at their hands. There are a lot of PDF editing sites and cloud services that are expensive and not so good as Adobe Acrobat, so for the companies that already have Adobe Creative Cloud, I see Adobe Acrobat as the way to go. However, if the company doesn't have Adobe Creative Cloud and don't need it for other software, maybe another PDF tool is better suited.

I think that most organizations are pretty well suited for using Adobe Acrobat. Any team that does lots of marketing or is trying to add sales I feel like having this tool is pretty much a must. No one wants to receive huge files of powerpoints or ugly word formatted sales presentations

Adobe Acrobat is very well suited when it comes to generating documents which need to be digitally signed, making it extremely easy, convenient and conducive to promoting effective business or legal transactions that can be trusted thanks to the use of digital certificate which prevent falsification. The associated automation and notification features really help make everyone save an enormous amount of time and essentially eliminate the need to print, mail or fax documents.

In addition, Adobe Acrobat is obviously the originating leader of PDF document management and therefore sets the direction and support for the product and associated standard, so that is one important reason to trust and invest in the company's product line.

I honestly don't know who is not using Adobe Acrobat in the professional world. Adobe Acrobat is definitely suited for business and academia. I believe it is versatile enough to be used in the art world.

We are a small law firm, and I find Acrobat to be an excellent program to assist us with our document-related jobs. It offers a comprehensive program to create PDFs, review them, compare them, combine them, redact them, etc. I use it for legal filings as well as recordkeeping (e.g., attaching invoice PDFs to transactions).

Adobe Acrobat is well suited for editing PDF documents and combining them. It is also well suited for filling and signing forms. I believe it is less appropriate if you are just only reading/viewing PDF documents. For this kind of workflow, you can use Adobe Reader, in my opinion.

Adobe is well suited for users that constantly need to manipulate PDF's. This is chopping pages off, combining pages, or editing certain text and fields on a PDF. It is not needed for the basic user who just essentially needs the reader product for viewing purposes. Edge now has a build in viewer as well and there are some additional functions that suit majority of the users.

Acrobat is well suited for converting and combining documents for e-filing. It also works very well for e-signing. Acrobat has no functionality to create court/discovery packages with automated tables of content or other features. Overall, it is a great product, and Adobe seems to be updating features regularly.

Extremely well suited for editing PDF files. Even when they have been scanned in with handwritten text. Very adept for any documents that require signature or feedback. Making collaboration quick and easy while looking very professional. Not as useful when you are trying to extract content from a PDF. Very hard to do this, especially for grabbing fonts or images when needed.

Adobe Acrobat professional document platform is at its best when working with individual documents, editing basic language text, and extracting for manipulation and insertion/reinsertion. Where Adobe Acrobat professional document platform comes up short is when attempting to do all of the above at scale and volume. Also, users using this function would like to be able to store and manage contracts in the same platform - an ecosystem (that doesn't exist).

I prepare legal court documents as well as real estate documents and contracts. I would be lost without this program. It virtually does everything I need to keep my documents updated and accessible. At times, it is difficult to keep the correct formatting when copying a document in Word into a PDF document. Otherwise, everything else is appropriate for my line of work.
