Don’t Wait For Paper: Send Fillable Forms 

In a world that is increasingly technology dominant, sending forms that need to be printed, filled out, and then scanned for email, or faxed back is a step backward.  But Adobe makes a program that enables forms to be fillable.  You can start with a scanned paper form or a simple form made in Microsoft Word, Excel, or another application, and turn it into an intelligent PDF with Acrobat. The process is quite simple, and we are always here to help if you need it!

The Benefits

There are countless benefits for converting paper forms to fillable forms such as; with the tools in the toolbars you will be able to change headings, insert buttons; add, delete, and edit form fields or enable fields for signatures. You can Distribute to collect responses automatically, on a company server. Calculations and data validation rules are also options that can be added to the fillable forms. 


In addition to the benefits mentioned, Acrobat integrates with enterprise applications, including Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint. Opening PDFs protected by Microsoft Information Protection solutions, including Azure Information Protection and Office 365 isn’t a problem either, sending protected files is also a feature of this program. Integration is another step we can help you with if needed!


Adobe offers several monthly options for this program for individuals and businesses.  And at the pricing for businesses starts at $16.99/seat/mo. (requires annual commitment). For midsize to large companies, Adobe prefers you to call for pricing. You will soon find that using fillable forms won’t just save you time and hassle, but it keeps you moving forward.
