Let’s start today reviewing Ariba LIVE. We had the chance to spend a few days in Las Vegas highlighting and demonstrating the brand new capabilities of Adobe Document Cloud. Since Ariba LIVE is a procurement conference, we focused on the Document Cloud’s e-Sign services (formerly EchoSign) and how they integrate with Ariba Contract Management.The Document Cloud eSign services are a low risk option for speeding up the procurement process – up to 500%. Despite the Ariba event being in Vegas, Adobe Document Cloud is not a gamble!
Addressing the Document Disconnect in Procurement
Our Senior Director of Global Procurement, Conrad Smith, presented a talk outlining the “document disconnect” in procurement. According to research conducted by IDC, 63% of line-of-business leaders think document processes negatively impact customer satisfaction. It’s not hard to imagine people feel that way, because we all know filling out and signing paperwork by hand can be tedious and frustrating. Conrad’s talk encouraged participants that it’s time to slash the piles of paperwork and get your team focused on the important things, not worrying about who has or hasn’t signed last week’s contract. And he closed with “stop being ‘old school’ procurement.” With Adobe Document Cloud you’ll be an office hero!
As part of the the Document Cloud release excitement, we are encouraging everyone to toss their unnecessary paperwork in the recycle bin, in style. Take a photo or video of you recycling your documents either from long distance or with a powerful slam dunk and share it on social. Be sure to use #AdobeDocCloud on Twitter and we may surprise a few of you with prizes!
