Today we take a big step towards realizing our vision of a new way to work on Acrobat.com.
Today we end the public beta for Acrobat.com. We launch Acrobat.com Premium subscriptions for more intensive business use (yes, the free version of the service is still available, and still free . And we give a look into the future of Acrobat.com for the coming year, starting with the unveiling of our spreadsheet product, Acrobat.com Tables, on our Labs website. Lots of news! Oh, plus two weeks ago we released Acrobat.com Presentations.
We’re busy because our customers are busy.
They are business people who solve business problems, set business directions, and manage business people. They are marketers, lawyers, program managers, general managers, CEOs. They work with others, in teams that often span multiple companies and multiple locations. And documents are the currency of their work, because documents establish shared understanding of what has happened, and what needs to happen next. Documents establish and communicate common goals. Documents are business.
Our product vision of a new way to work is based on three principles. First, bringing people to documents is more efficient and effective than sending attachments to overfull inboxes. Second, working together on documents in real time is more productive and convenient than working separately on multiple copies of multiple versions. Third, collaboration is much more about people than it is about technology, and so our products need to be simple, powerful, and fun to use.
We believe that Acrobat.com can make you more competitive, because we know it makes our team more competitive.
And we’re just getting started.
