Adobe Acrobat vs Adobe Acrobat PRO DC – What’s the difference?

This promotion has now ended (26/04/2022).

Adobe Acrobat is one of the most widely known pdf editor software suites available in 2021. It is used and loved by customers in every industry, from private sector to those in public education and government administration.

The software is available as a free download online, although Fujitsu ScanSnap are currently offering a promotion with their iX1400 & iX1600 document scanners whereby customers can claim a free version of the upgrade Adobe Acrobat Pro DC license for 12 months.

So, with that in mind, what are the main differences between Acrobat Standard and Pro DC?

Adobe Reader vs Adobe Acrobat PRO DC

Adobe Reader

Adobe Acrobat Reader is one of the most commonly downloaded and free pdf readers available. Whilst it is a very useful tool for many customers, most are not aware that it is able to offer much more!

Adobe Reader simply allows the user to view, comment on and print digital PDF files on their desktop. Physical paper can be scanned with a document scanner, then viewed through Adobe Reader before being saved.

Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

However, with Pro DC, users have the ability to do all of this plus convert scanned documents into searchable and editable PDFs for improved data retrieval. Alternatively, files can also be exported into editable Microsoft Office files such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint.

Furthermore, users have access to the powerful Adobe Document Cloud. This allows you to upload and share PDFs in the cloud and access them on the go and extends editing capabilities to mobile devices. Edit text and images; reorder, delete, and rotate PDF pages on the move. You can even e-sign documents using PRO DC, which is a requirement we are seeing more and more of in a post covid working environment for the paperless office.
