Architecture firm relies on Adobe Acrobat for visual content collaboration

working (2)

Architecture clients need dynamic visual communication to help them understand the creative visions of a company like Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. So RSHP leverages the creative power of Adobe solutions such as InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and After Effects to bring images into a compelling storyline. Plus, with Adobe Acrobat, RSHP’s architects and designers can combine all types of content into PDF files optimized for any device.

“Rich, visual content enables us to communicate our ideas internally and with clients, resulting in stronger designs and winning bids,” explains David Liu, associate IT manager at RSHP. “We need the most powerful creative and collaborative tools available, which is why we turned to Adobe software.”

Adobe solutions dramatically reduced operating expenses by eliminating paper and printing costs and streamlining workflows. Plus, it improved productivity by allowing RSHP to expand client access to important project details.

Design Your Forms Even MORE Freely: FormsCentral update

In the two years since FormsCentral was first introduced, we’ve gotten really great feedback from all of our customers about how easy it is to create good-looking, professional forms; not only is the WYSIWYG design mechanism intuitive and flexible, you can also match colors exactly with a HEX value and add your own images and styling elements to get the form to look just the way you want.

Today we’re taking this design freedom one step further by adding a feature that we’ve been asked for quite a lot: the ability to line up your fields side by side on a form instead of stacking them vertically. So now, instead of taking up tons of vertical real estate, you can get the same information in only a teeny bit of space. Now, not only will your forms be beautiful and functional, they’ll also be economically designed.

Achieving productivity in a mobile world: How to stay on top of your work while in constant motion

Be honest with yourself for a minute: how many intelligent devices do you own? Probably several: A desktop computer, a laptop or both; a phone, a tablet, perhaps a couple of each; and yes, you’ve got one of those microwaves that reads you the news every morning (let’s not go there right now). Now, how many different apps do you have that count as a news source, a reading platform, a file storage platform, or an authoring or content-creating platform? A zillion. (For the sake of playing along, I just counted up the apps on my iPhone, and I’ve got – really – 21 different apps that serve to deliver or store content for me. That’s not including the apps I’ve got on my Android tablet, let alone the vast world that opens up to me when I’m at my laptop.)

The fact is, most of us in this tech-crazy, content consuming world have many, many different ways to store, save, and savor our information, and we can do it from just about anywhere with a decent wireless or WiFi signal. The mobile platforms we use daily (phone, tablet, laptop) might allow us to get more work done than ever before, because we can do our work in a cab, on a train, or standing in line waiting for our next gadget to be released. But what if we could do our work without subscribing to, say, 21 different applications? What if there was a simple system that we could use to get actual, bona fide work done without taking a voice memo to transcribe later on, or writing an email reminder to ourselves on a tiny keyboard?

Enter Adobe’s Document Services.

We’ve been working maniacally back here at the mothership to support a mobile mode of working that constitutes getting real work done: real contracts getting signed, real forms being filled and sent, real comments made on digital documents – no matter where you are. With Adobe’s Document Services, such as Adobe EchoSign, Adobe FormsCentral, and the Acrobat.com cloud storage system, you can hit the road with nothing but your favorite tablet and be sure that you won’t miss a deal for having left your laptop at home. Here’s just one example: Adobe EchoSign’s mobile app lets you upload documents and send them off to be signed; you can even use the Adobe Reader application to fill out a form and apply your signature to a PDF document before you send it off for another signature with the EchoSign app. Even better, your account activity is tracked even when you’re on a mobile device so no information about the transaction is lost; when you sign into your account from another computer, you’ll see all of your activity has been securely transcribed for your records.

Okay, great, you’re saying; signatures on mobile devices sound awesome. But what if you’ve got a 150-page PDF document that you’re reading or reviewing in Adobe Reader on your laptop, and you’ve suddenly got to leave the house before you’re done reading? No problem: save the document to your Acrobat.com account, and access it from your phone while you’re on the bus to wherever you’re going; when you open the document from Acrobat.com, your place has been saved and you can pick up right where you left off while in transit.

We know how fast things move these days, and we know how fast you’re moving, too; Adobe’s Document Services and mobile applications help you stay on top of things even when you’re only at your desk for 30 minutes a day. Download the free Adobe Reader app for iOS and Android devices, and see how much more efficient you become next time you’re sitting in a waiting room or in a coffee shop. We think you may even be able to delete some of those extra apps.

That’s how we know that you’ll love this: Sign up for the new FormsCentral referral program. Tell your friends about FormsCentral.
