VIP is often used as the abbreviation for a Very Important Person. In this case, when it comes to an agreement form from Adobe, it is an acronym for Value Incentive Plan – a subscription license agreement designed for businesses of all sizes. Like many other software companies, Adobe is moving their licensing model from a purchase model to a subscription model. This means that you don’t have to buy the licenses any more – you just rent the right to use the software.
With a VIP membership, no minimum license purchase is required. The management of licenses is easy, the installation can be done right away and the license compliance regulations is done automatically.
We have compiled four good reasons why the VIP is a good agreement form if you have more than 10 Adobe licenses in your organisation:
- Get quick and easy access
It’s easy to sign your business a VIP deal through COMPAREX while providing all users with easy and fast access to the software they use from Adobe. You can use the Adobe VIP-portal, called the VIP Admin Console, for administration, assigning and deployment.
- Deploy software without any delays
The VIP agreement allows you to deploy Adobe software when it suits you – and even before the purchase process of the license is complete. So the users can start working with the creative tools quickly.
- Always the right number of licenses
With the VIP agreement there is no minimum requirement for the number of licenses you need to buy. This agreement is designed to support the needs of businesses of all sizes.
- Simplified management and license compliance
An Adobe VIP agreement makes the license management very easy. You can see what products are purchased and which ones are installed. Furthermore, you will have access to upgrades as soon as they are released. This gives you the chance to let go of all stress about compliance and at the same time, you will have the newest features at hand.
The VIP agreement is only an agreement for cloud products – like the products included in Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Document Cloud.
Creative products available through VIP
VIP provides a cost-effective, easy way to deploy always up-to-date versions of Creative Cloud and Document Cloud across your organization. Creative Cloud gives you a collection of creative tools, including the well-known Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Premiere Pro. Document Cloud powers 100% digital workflows with Adobe Acrobat, eSign services, and more.
Adobe Creative Cloud Migration offer
Right now and until September 2nd, Adobe runs a migration campaign offering Commercial and Government customers with Creative Suite versions (CS5, CS5.5 and CS6) to upgrade to Creative Cloud for Teams and take advantage of all the new features.
Adobe updates the Creative Cloud products on a regular basis and with a VIP membership you can benefit from the newest features.
