Adobe Creative Cloud is a useful resource for more than just designers; administrative professionals can also benefit from this suite of apps. With enhanced sharing features and apps that work together, Creative Cloud can help you improve data collection, operate more efficiently, and create more dynamic internal training materials.

Two of the best Creative Cloud apps for administrative professionals are Acrobat and Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition.

Adobe Acrobat

When you need to collect information about an individual, project, or department, having a standard form on hand will save time and ensure that you gather comparable data. Having this form in a digital format that also collates the data for you can improve efficiency even more.

Whether you use forms for client surveys, human resources, or project tracking, creating forms in Acrobat is an excellent way to enhance your daily operations. You can get started in three easy steps:

  1. Create – If you have an existing form, simply scan it and convert it to a digital format with fillable fields. You can also create a completely new form with check boxes, radio buttons, and other features that make it easier to both complete the form and analyze it later. The easy drag-and-drop interface eliminates the need for coding or design skills.
  2. Collect – When you gather information in forms, analyzing the data or making it usable is often the next step. Acrobat allows you to export data to Excel so you can manipulate it as necessary. Providing digital forms online also allows you to collect, sort, and filter data in real-time.
  3. Share – You can share forms in a number of ways, including FormsCentral, e-mail, websites, or on your company server. Cloud storage also makes it possible to access your forms from any computer, even when you’re not in the office.

Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition

Creative Cloud is also a useful resource for making internal presentations, training materials, and manuals more interesting and dynamic. With Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition you can publish your own apps, either externally or internally, without any coding skills at all. Simply create a layout in InDesign, use Folio Overlays to add interactive features, and use the Folio Builder to create a folio. Connect an iPad to the computer, the files are copied to the device, and you have an internal iPad presentation.

Creative Cloud for Teams makes it even easier to manage multiple accounts within the same company. With a single login ID, administrators can manage users and permissions from one central location. If you decide that you need only a single app, such as Acrobat, you have the option to purchase just that app for a low monthly fee.
