eSignatures Everywhere

Todayy’s release, the days of printing, signing and faxing back documents are truly numbered. We’ve tightened the integration between Adobe Reader and Adobe EchoSign eSignature service, so you and your customers can gain real-time visibility into the signature process and status of contracts – giving you greater assurance and control over the management of all signed documents. We’ve also streamlined the desktop experience and added features that give you more choice and greater functionality.

Thanks to Adobe Reader for mobile, you can electronically sign a document by simply drawing your signature with your finger on a touchscreen, making it easy to conduct business while on the go.  Additionally, you can connect to Adobe EchoSign to get others to sign documents electronically, letting you track and manage the status of documents online. And, because the signed contracts are archived in the cloud, you can easily retrieve documents from anywhere, at any time, via a web browser.

We didn’t stop there, though. Adobe Reader for mobile also adds new capabilities that let you interact with PDF documents directly from your iOS or Android devices, including annotation, comment and forms fill. And, of course, the highly intuitive user interface provides an efficient PDF viewing experience regardless of the device.

With Adobe Reader and EchoSign, we’re making it easy for anyone to send important contracts to customers so that they can quickly and easily sign and send them electronically – and get the deal done faster. Give Adobe Reader with EchoSign a test drive on your next deal.

    I am working on an arrest warrent PDF that the police fills out, saves using the new Reader and emails to a judge. It is great that the judge can open the PDF on an iPad and sign/date it. But, how does the judge lock the PDF so signature can not be moved or deleted when it’s emailed back to the submitting police officer? I think I understand the EchoSign feature but seems to require purchase of an Enterprise license and we can’t do that presently. How can I make this warrant PDF a reality on the iPad?

    Hi Charlie,

    A document sent for signature through the EchoSign system is a locked document. Once sent, the fields cannot be adjusted or deleted. The application accepts the signature, and then automatically returns the signed document back to the sender. There is no option for an external party to modify the document in any way (unless you send the document for Fax signature, and then you have to deal with the normal Fax issues).

    EchoSign is an electronic signature service, so the whole of the signature and document processing takes place entirely on the EchoSign servers.

    Hope this helps,
