Microsoft and Adobe bring PDF services to OneDrive and SharePoint

The latest update for Adobe Scan, however, introduces a nifty new feature that may just be what the app needed - converting business cards to contacts with a single tap.

Thanks to Sensei, Adobe Scan can recognize a business card once it is placed in front of a phone's camera, with a Save Contact button presented to allow the user to suck the card's data right into their on-device contacts list for use later.

This most recent announcement marks an expansion of the partnership Adobe and Microsoft revealed in September 2017. The company said this feature will improve over time. One of the issues the developers had to solve was when scanning a business card with a white text on a black, or very a dark, background, which is something that usually confuses OCR (optical image recognition) software. The update also brings the ability to access scans even after the app has closed or the handset has restarted. In the following weeks, Azure will get Adobe Sign support in the USA with expansion to other regions expected.

In addition to the PDF integrations, Adobe also announced that Adobe Sign, the company's e-signature offering, will be embedded deeper into the Microsoft Dynamics sales management program and also integrate LinkedIn contact details.

Adobe announced today a new integration of its PDF technologies across Office 365, with the company's PDF services now being available in the online versions of Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Users will also have access to Adobe PDF capabilities through SharePoint and OneNote on any device. Office 365 subscribers with a subscription to Adobe Acrobat DC for teams or enterprise will be able to create PDFs from Office files right from the ribbon, but Adobe PDF services are also available in SharePoint and OneDrive.
