Adobe Systems Inc. recently announced the availability of Adobe Creative Cloud to provide Filipino creatives their first chance to experience a radical new way of accessing Adobe’s iconic tools and services.
Adobe Creative Cloud is a membership-based service that provides users with unlimited access to download and install all Creative Suite desktop applications, plus Photoshop Lightroom, Adobe Muse, Adobe Edge tools and services; game developer tools and integration with Photoshop Touch apps.
Adobe Creative Cloud for teams, the first of the Creative Cloud membership options available in the Philippines is tailored for small and medium businesses. It offers all the above features, plus administrative tools for centralized license purchase and management, increased storage capacity, and expert services.
Speaking at the launch, Adobe head of Southeast Asia Vicky Skipp, said that since its release in the USA in April 2012, the creative sector has responded enthusiastically. “In just seven months, we’ve seen an incredible take-up, with more than one million individuals in the US and globally joining Adobe Creative Cloud. Our goal is to now make Creative Cloud the ultimate hub for creative teams, where they can access the world’s best tools; store and collaborate across their workplace and ultimately showcase their creations.”
Along with desktop tools, online services for publishing and file sharing, and upgrades and feature updates as soon as they are released, Adobe Creative Cloud for teams also includes easy management of virtual workgroups, 100GB of cloud storage per user (versus 20GB for the individual Creative Cloud offering), expert support services, centralized administration for the quick and easy deployment of new seats, and centralized billing and efficient license management.
“Creative Cloud for teams makes it easier for workgroups to create and collaborate on creative projects. Plus, business owners automatically enjoy upgrades and new features as soon as they are available,” said Ms Skipp. “We have eliminated the release cycle waiting game for our customers, who want to keep on the crest of new tools and techniques. Adobe’s new Creative Cloud for teams offering means it has never been easier for small to medium businesses to access our products and enjoy all the benefits of working with Adobe tools and services.”
Adobe Creative Cloud for teams is available at approximately US$840.00 per user for a one-year plan. Existing Creative Suite 3 and later customers who have previously purchased Creative Suite software through a volume licensing program may be eligible to buy at the special price of US$600.00 per user for a one-year plan. Team memberships are sold via Adobe’s network of worldwide resellers. Full listing of resellers is available at http://www.adobe.com/sea/
