As of this month, Softcat’s customers now have the option to purchase Acrobat Pro and Acrobat Standard licensing via subscription. Adobe will still offer customers perpetual licenses, but is advising customers to consider subscription licensing’s many benefits including lower up front cost, simplified management and easy cost-effective upgrades.

Vanessa Barkaway, Softcat’s emerging alliance manager, said: “Today’s employees often need to be able to work on the go, accessing apps remotely from multiple mobile devices. Added to this, increasing numbers are choosing to bring their own devices (BYOD) to the workplace. This can throw up compliance issues for licensing, but with Adobe Acrobat on VIP (Value Incentive Plan) licensing managers can easily reassign users from the main console, upgrades are automatically delivered, and users benefit from streamlined purchasing and upgraded processes."

She added, “The online services, 20GB Cloud storage and simplified management aspects of Acrobat via VIP subscription are its biggest benefits – aside from the cost management aspect of course.”

The Acrobat VIP subscription includes full desktop software and associated upgrades, and its online services enable users to store and share files in the cloud, and convert and export PDFs from Android and iOS devices, and any browser without the need to download or install new software.
