We do a lot with PDFs and the ability to edit them is key. Adobe Acrobat DC is the program I choose because of the ease of use, quick learning curve and reliable results. The conversion aspect is one of my favorite parts.

It is being used in our department and across the organization. It allows us to create/edit branded PDFs for use with front-end clients. We use it to create both traditional PDFs and form-fillable PDFs. It's also used for one-pager guides and documents of that nature. Sometimes, we use it to sign documents.

We use Adobe Acrobat for all of our PDFs that run through projects. It's perfect for highlighting within academic articles to help us with strategic positioning day to day. We use the comment feature to add our thoughts and work as a team without having to be in person. It also allows us to edit previous documents with charts and analytics that we can then copy over to presentations. It's very simple to use and allows us to easily navigate day to day projects.

We use it to make agreements and contracts that we use for selling services to our customers. We also use it to create fliers for both internal and external usage. This addresses sales and marketing needs for our business. I use the software extensively, nearly every day, to create these documents for my company. I create contest fliers, promotional/marketing fliers, and all of our agreements. I also use it to convert our SOPs from Word documents to PDFs.

We use Adobe Acrobat DC to edit, manipulate, and manage PDF files. More specifically, Adobe Acrobat DC helps us edit text, add comments, merge and split files, remove and rearrange pages within a PDF document, convert Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files to PDF, and complete PDF forms and sign them. We can execute all these functions in one software package, which is convenient and improves our productivity.

I often get production outlines and scripts from clients as PDF files, as well as deliver the same to clients. Acrobat gives us an easy means to exchange any written material that can universally be viewed by any user with the same formatting the writer intended. It has the added bonus of being able to form fields, such as a signature area for sign-offs.

Having a consulting arm in the business, we usually have a lot of qualitative data coming in the form of PDFs. That's what we primarily use Adobe Acrobat DC for. It's great for having multiple reading sessions, and the tools like highlighting and comments make collaborative work much easier.

Adobe Acrobat is my go-to software for editing, creating, and e-singing files, yet the possibilities seem endless. This product is essential for business needs and useful during my tutoring experience. The discount for teachers and students is an extraordinary perk. I highly recommend this product and trusted brand.

Creating and sharing secured documentation has never been easy with Adobe Acrobat. Also, with new fill and sign features, it saves a lot of physical hard copies of documents, and the design option makes everything available digitally. Easy to find and keep them safe over shared cloud storage is a boon. No other competitors in the market.

I use Adobe Acrobat DC to convert Microsoft Office files to PDF for distribution to our board members and others. I also use it to obtain signatures inside and outside our organization which helps to maintain a level of security with our corporate documents and makes it easier for our directors and trustees to complete their duties.

I use Adobe Acrobat DC to share files with others in my departments as well as others in partnering departments to ensure formatting stays intact. Adobe Acrobat also allows for light editing by other users. I also send Adobe PDFs to commercial printers to give them a reference point of how the final file should look. Some printers choose to print directly from the PDFS.

We use it for rolling up documents and submitting proposals to potential clients (starts in several Word docs - > heavy edits -> final docs converted to separate PDFs -> PDFs get rolled into one document -> necessary header/footers inserted - > generally submitted electronically. Also, for signing contracts that have been awarded to the firm. Another useful tool is the Export function. We are able to take PDFs exported from Project Management tools and export them into a Powerpoint or Word file. Useful for including in new proposals and or presentations.

Ease of access for big and small-size PDFs. Using of digital signature in PDF is best. In my day-to-day work at the organization, I prepare, combine, scan OCR with edit and much more in this Adobe Acrobat Dc software and also easily upload in Adobe cloud and share it across the team.
