Adobe: Taking your PDF experience to a new level


Adobe has had an undeniable effect on the world of digitizing paper documents and having a uniform standard for electronic documents anyone can access. Adobe’s innovative work led to the creation of the Portable Document Format (PDF). Adobe pdf files are the standard that is used by nearly every business and changed the way work is done.

At Novatech, we work with groups that want to go beyond Adobe’s free Adobe Reader software to reach their business potential.

We give businesses more power by utilizing technology that makes them more productive, reduces risks, and increases revenue. Adobe’s paid options have a lot of features that their free software doesn’t have and can help your business achieve these benefits.

Investment vs. Returns

Adobe Acrobat Pro is the best tool to manage PDF files, and it is a good investment, especially for companies that want to use it in teams or departments. With trained “power users” of Acrobat, even people who don’t have direct access to it can use its features like Acrobat Sign.

At about $20 per person per month, this software won’t break the bank, even if it’s used by 10 or 20 people.


Absolutely! Adobe cares about keeping your data safe, so they use the highest standards when they handle your web forms or collect signatures.

Individual licenses can only be used by one person, but team permits can be managed from a dashboard, which makes administration easier. If you want to buy more than one license, you should get a Team license, which requires at least 5 permits.

No, Adobe Desktop 2020 can only be bought once. We usually recommend the Cloud version because it can be used on multiple devices, has better protection, and can be signed electronically. Some tools aren’t available in Desktop 2020, but you can choose if you want to use them or not. We’re here to help you choose the Adobe program that will work best for you.

No, Reader DC has some of the features the standard Reader platform lacks, such as the ability to scan paper documents. However, it does not include all the features of the more robust Adobe Acrobat product. Here is a chart with some of the different {please create a chart based on this} features between the two products.
