What is Adobe Sign?
Adobe Sign is an enterprise-class e-signature service that lets you replace paper and ink signature processes with fully automated electronic signature workflows.
With it, you can easily send, sign, track, and manage signature processes using a browser or mobile device.
Why Adobe Sign
You can now eliminate manual document processes and accelerate approvals with Adobe Sign, the trusted e-signature solution from the global leader in secure digital document solutions.
With Adobe Sign you can reduce the time it takes to onboard employees, sign nondisclosure agreements (NDAs), close sales deals, and more—from days to hours, or sometimes even minutes. Adobe Sign makes it easy for anyone in your organization to send documents for legal e-signatures with just a few clicks, and then track the status in real time.
And signing is just as simple. Recipients can sign on the dotted line from anywhere using a web browser or mobile device—no
account setup or software downloads required.
As Microsoft’s preferred e-signature solution, Adobe Sign is deeply integrated across Microsoft’s portfolio of applications.
Adobe e-signatures are legally binding and enforceable in almost every industrialized country in the world.
Plus Adobe Sign is now available through the Adobe Value Incentive Plan (VIP), so you can manage all your licenses—including Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Creative Cloud—through one central admin console.
