Enables Resellers to Offer World-Class Design Tools and Services
CLEARWATER, Fla., Feb. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Expanding its Cloud service offerings, Tech Data Corporation (Nasdaq:TECD) today announced it will now distribute Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) Creative Cloud for teams. Tech Data's partnership with Adobe will give resellers access to Creative Cloud for teams through the Value Incentive Plan (VIP), Adobe's membership-based volume licensing program. VIP simplifies the purchase, management, and permission to use Adobe software and services based on declared user ID numbers.
"Tech Data is committed to providing the best Cloud services and solutions to the channel," said Stacy Nethercoat, vice president of Product Marketing, Software and Cloud Services at Tech Data. "Through our partnership with Adobe, the VIP membership program is an innovative way to utilize Creative Cloud for teams and the expertise of Adobe systems. The VIP membership is an enablement tool that provides an all-encompassing customer service experience for our resellers."
Benefits of VIP for Resellers
VIP uses a simple enrollment process to initiate your Creative Cloud membership, so your team can deploy the software as the purchase is being processed.
You'll be provided an administrator console that allows you to see what's been purchased and deployed and to whom—all from one easy-to-use interface.
Membership also consolidates your seats and products into a single agreement and automatically prorates any additional seats that you add after the initial purchase, simplifying license management.
Creative Cloud for teams is ideal for resellers who want to offer download capabilities of Adobe's professional tools. VIP members will benefit from always up-to-date software and access to new tools and features from Adobe as soon as they are available. Resellers can access more information about the Creative Cloud product and 30 day trial through the Solutions Store powered by StreamOne.
The VIP initiative offered through Tech Data is intended to provide simple access, technical support and education training for Adobe's Creative Cloud users in the channel.
"The new Adobe Creative Cloud for teams is an industry-defining shift in creative expression and inspiration, and it's a place where workgroups of creative professionals can access all of the newest Adobe world-class tools and services," said David Rich, director of Product Marketing for Adobe's Digital Media business. "We are pleased that Tech Data is now offering the Creative Cloud VIP program for resellers."
To maximize the benefits of the program, Tech Data's Creative Cloud team is offering free webinars.
