Creative Cloud: High-Impact Design Tools, Low Up-Front Cost [Adobe]

Client Computing | Posted on June 20, 2012 by Melissa Alvares

Get your organization Adobe Creative Cloud before the official release!

Adobe Creative Cloud is a creative hub where designers can explore, create, publish, and share work using Adobe Creative Suite 6 components and online services. While Creative Cloud Individual will be available soon on, in the coming months, Adobe will introduce Creative Cloud Team for organizations.

Prior to the release of the full membership, Adobe has created the Creative Cloud Team Ready offer – a special purchasing option for organizations that want a more affordable entry to Adobe Creative Suite 6 software, plus the ability to access the benefits of membership as soon as possible.

By taking advantage of the Creative Cloud Team Ready offer you receive:

  • Immediate access to CS6 Master Collection, including all the cutting-edge innovation and productivity-boosting performance in Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended,Adobe Illustrator CS6, and more
  • Support from Adobe Expert Services, including two priority expert service calls per seat
  • Easy transition to the full Creative Cloud Team offering with a quick two-step reserialization process — no need to uninstall or reinstall software

Our Graphic Designer Dan Ioanitescu explains why this tool will be great for his job.

What’s the difference between the Individual and Team Ready membership?

The difference between individual and team

One key point is that the Individual offer can only be licensed to an individual and the Team Ready offer allows licenses to a company.

With a monthly fee payable for an annual subscription, you can now lower upfront licensing costs, and enjoy the latest CS version and the excellent new features. Check our previous post on what you need to know about the new licensing subscription options. It also makes your budget predictable as it is a fixed monthly cost, without any upgrade costs. This means that your monthly revenue is now more predictable.

What’s the benefit of Cloud membership over the Traditional License?

Your organization can now keep up with rapidly changing technology without any incremental costs. Previously, we’ve discussed how impactful the new cloud features will be. With this model, your creative team can easily create, publish and monetize content with the latest and greatest tools. They can also access their files and content anywhere. Creative Cloud also allows easy transition between apps and CS tools between different devices too. All together this means less management for you….and less cost!

For full offer details we’ve put together a quick Creative Cloud Team Ready Offer Information Sheet.

Think of Adobe Creative Cloud as an endless toolkit that provides the right creative tool the moment you need it. Creative Cloud Team Ready members will be the first users to enjoy the rich features and ongoing innovation delivered through Adobe Creative Cloud Team.
