Businesses around the world are trying to keep up with the pace of digital transformation. You’ve likely felt it at your own company, with pressure to work faster, get more done with less resources, and make the move to go 100 percent digital, in both your day to day job and in the experience that you give your customers.
Odds are you are working with digital documents on a daily basis, using Box for secure content collaboration, and likely using Adobe Acrobat and Acrobat Reader to create, edit, and review PDFs whether on your desktop, tablet or smartphone. Adobe file formats are one of the most popular content types in Box that people collaborate on. In fact, there's over two billion PDF files already in Box. That is why we’re joining forces. We are excited to enable our joint customers to make working with digital documents in the enterprise an effortless experience.

Check out the top 3 ways the new integration will simplify and streamline how you already work with documents in Box:

1) Quickly access and save files from Adobe apps. You will be able to open and work with PDF files stored in Box using Acrobat and Acrobat Reader. All of that work is saved back to Box in real time, so the latest version is always available. You can also select Box as your preferred cloud provider from the iOS document picker within Acrobat Reader mobile on iPhone and iPad making the process just as seamless when working on the go.

2) Edit PDFs directly from Box. With just a few clicks in Box, you will be able to open documents directly in Acrobat DC and make edits that are automatically updated in Box. This integration allows businesses to seamlessly leverage Acrobat to work with PDFs, while benefiting from Box’s robust collaboration features and world-class security and control capabilities.

3)Speed your business with e-signatures. You will be able to open Box files directly in Adobe Sign to provide an electronic signature on important contracts and paperwork. The feature eliminates the hassle of file downloads, transfers and duplication of content by centralizing all updates in Box and makes it easier than ever to circulate content to the right people.

We couldn’t be more excited about this collaboration and how it will help you organize, manage and collaborate on your most important content. The integration will begin rolling out in May, so stay tuned for more details
