Microsoft, Adobe Expand E-Signature Partnership

The two are advancing their partnership to bolster collaboration and efficiency.

With the aim to bolster e-signature and team collaboration technologies, Adobe and Microsoft are expanding their cloud partnership announced last year.

Digital signature technology is taking off in government in places like Hawaii, which was able to streamline its government signature process and adopt more sustainable practices through a partnership with Adobe. The expansion will aim to further drive business efficiencies and team communication by making Adobe Sign Microsoft’s preferred e-signature solution, integrating the tech into Office 365, according to a press release. Moreover, Microsoft Teams, a chat-based workspace in Office 365, will become the preferred collaboration service for Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud.

“Together with Adobe, we’re committed to fostering creativity and a culture of teamwork for our shared customers, so they can unlock the opportunities of today’s rapidly evolving workplace,” says Peggy Johnson, executive vice president, business development at Microsoft, in the press release.

Going forward, the companies say they will continue to explore opportunities to collaborate on artificial intelligence, analytics and intelligent document automation with the aim to further collaboration and business efficiencies.
