Reader Extensions and Forms Processing

Collecting and processing document and form data can be challenging, especially when one or more parties are participating remotely, and also when processing large quantities of documents. To streamline this process, we’re offering a new solution – Adobe Experience Reader Extensions (AERE). AERE is a tool that allows you to automate and extend forms and document processing through Adobe Reader. This means that you can choose which functionality you want included in your documents or forms (commenting, digital signatures, barcodes, etc.), and AERE allows you to enable and offer these extensions to specific users through the free Adobe Reader application.

This tool leverages core functions within Adobe LiveCycle, and can help reduce errors, processing time, and cost when collaborating on projects, while increasing security, accuracy, and compliance.
