Adobe Launches Online Collaboration

Adobe transitioned its service from beta to an official product on Monday. The service lets users collaborate remotely via the Internet and convert documents into PDF.

Subscribers can use the service to collaborate on documents, interact remotely, host Web-based meetings, convert documents to PDF, store files online, and more.

Adobe is planning on expanding the service to include Web-based office applications. Preview versions of the Acrobat Tables spreadsheet application, and the Presentations slideshow application are available now.

The basic service is available for free. The Premium Basic subscription is priced at US$14.99 a month, supports Web meetings with up to five participants, and includes ten PDF document conversions a month. The Premium Plus subscription costs $39 a month, supports up to 20 participants in Web meetings, and includes unlimited PDF conversions each month.
