Adobe EchoSign Garners Its 7th Salesforce AppExchange Customer Choice Award

It’s always a great feeling when you win an award. It’s especially great when that award comes from a partner like SalesForce.com and you win the award because customers voted and chose your product as the best.

Customer Choice AwardFor the seventh straight year, Adobe EchoSign was named the number one e-signature application and overall winner for sales for the Salesforce.com’s 2012 AppExchange Customer Choice award! EchoSign collected the most glowing customer reviews in its category for the past year. Thank you to all our customers for your enthusiastic responses to our product and voting us number one again!

“Companies of all sizes turn to the AppExchange as the world’s leading business apps marketplace to extend the benefits of the cloud throughout their organizations,” said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president ISV and Channel, salesforce.com. “Adobe EchoSign taps into the power of social and mobile cloud technologies to transform the way companies connect with customers, partners and employees. We congratulate Adobe on being selected by customers as a leader in the Customer Choice Award category and applaud their ongoing commitment to delivering customer success.”

Adobe EchoSign is used by more than 35,000 companies of all sizes to sign 1.5 million contracts each month. EchoSign has helped these organizations cut sales close cycles by 50 percent to as much as 500 percent and reduce post-sale internal contract processing costs by 50 percent to 75 percent.

The New York Stock Exchange uses EchoSign to sign and manage renewal agreements with the companies listed on the exchange. “We saw an immediate improvement in the process. We reduce the time it took to get agreements signed from several days to about one hour,” said Brandon Baker, vice president at NYSE Technologies.

Those are just a few examples satisfied EchoSign customers. Why not find out what all the hoopla is about by taking a test drive here.

Update to Acrobat XI (11.0.01), X (10.1.5) and 9.5.3

We released our “Patch Tuesday” update to Acrobat & Adobe Reader earlier this week.

For information on the security updates see Security Bulletin APSB13-02 for details.
For detailed Release Notes, please see the Enterprise Toolkit.

A few highlights to be aware of:

New Updater Mode Added to Acrobat XI for Windows
The Adobe Acrobat XI for Windows updater now has a fully-automated mode. As a reminder, “fully-automated” mode will regularly check for important updates, download them to your machine, and install them automatically. When finished, you will be alerted via a small message in the system tray that your software has been updated. This method is the recommended best practice for keeping Adobe Acrobat up-to-date and more secure given the fact that it does not require user intervention.

Handling Flash in 10.1.5
As mentioned in Three Common Adobe Reader and Acrobat Security Questions, unknown Flash will now be rendered by the system Flash Player (NPAPI version), when using Adobe Reader and Acrobat 10.1.5. Note: This has already been done for Reader and Acrobat 11. As stated before, this means that Adobe Reader/Acrobat users will no longer have to update Adobe Reader/Acrobat each time we update the Flash Player. This is particularly beneficial to customers in managed environments, because fewer updates means a lower cost of ownership, while maintaining a vigilant security posture.

And as a reminder, support for Adobe Acrobat 9.x will end on June 26, 2013.
