Dynamic Subscriptions

Simplify global management and distribution of licenses across all sites with our new cloud-based licensing model for on-premise applications.

  • Eliminate time consuming and costly license transfers. Licenses no longer belong to the individual but can be accessed by anyone in the ‘pool’ at any time until you reach your limit of purchased licenses. Once the user closes the application, the license goes back into the ‘pool’.
  • Allow for efficient and flexible license usage, including shift work, occasional usage and distribution across regions.
  • Reduce the need for license administration by IT or prepress managers – use online cloud portal and services to easily assign a pool of licenses to a group of users from any location.
