Six Years of Adobe and Apttus: What’s Coming at Accelerate 2014
By Kevin M. Lynch, SVP and GM, Acrobat and Document Services, Adobe
Adobe is proud to announce its presence at the Apttus’ Accelerate Quote-to-Cash event in San Francisco this week, as a Diamond Sponsor, a feature keynote on Tuesday, and a solutions-centric customer panel on Wednesday. Accelerate has become a “must-attend” event for anyone who is looking to accelerate and automate business contracting, and Adobe’s thrilled to play such a central role in this event.
But beyond the event this week, we’re proud that the relationship goes even deeper than sponsorships and keynotes. Adobe has shared a six year relationship with Apttus – one in which Adobe has been Apttus’ partner in delivering “quote-to-cash” solutions, and one in which Apttus has been an Adobe customer.
So what does Apttus, the world’s top “quote-to-cash” provider, purchase from Adobe? Adobe EchoSign, the e-signature solution that integrates with existing processes to help close deals faster and more securely.
It’s always a good thing to have a customer choose Adobe EchoSign for its contracts and sales needs. It’s even better when that customer specializes in contracts and sales itself. Talk about validation!
Adobe is, and has always been, about changing the world through digital experiences. We’ve been at the forefront of transforming numerous industries, from electronic document workflows to interactive web experiences and games. Today, we’re changing the world with Adobe EchoSign, the e-signature solution that integrates with existing processes to help sell more quickly and more securely. In innovating and integrating services like Adobe EchoSign, we are helping customers (and HR, Procurement, and many more) leverage their existing processes, systems and information to transform bigger business workflows.
In short, today Adobe is redefining business workflows in the way we redefined documents with PDF.
I’m excited to share more about the six year Adobe/Apttus partnership and Adobe’s future vision during my keynote address on Tuesday. Moreover, I know my colleague Mark Grilli has big plans to talk about other big Adobe EchoSign & Apttus customer successes during his Wednesday panel.
I genuinely look forward to speaking with you on Tuesday at Apttus Accelerate.
And Apttus? Thank you for a terrific six years. Here’s to many more.
