Adobe offers two additional licensing schemes, CLP and TLP.
CLP is a two-year membership program that offers commercial customers savings on volume purchases of Adobe products and simplifies software administration. There is a minimum initial purchase requirement for CLP. The latest version of Adobe’s Creative tools are not available under the CLP licensing scheme.
TLP offers volume purchase benefits to commercial customers without membership requirements or long-term agreements. The latest version of Adobe’s Creative tools are not available under the TLP licensing scheme.
Adobe Creative Cloud for teams complete and single app are available through the Adobe Value Plan (VIP) which is Adobe’s new subscription-based licensing programme designed for companies of all sizes. With a VIP membership no minimum license purchase is required, management is easy, deployment is immediate and compliance is automatic all through a centralised admin portal.
Creative Cloud for teams is licensed per seat, a seat is assigned to one user and is linked to their details, they can access their account from any device. Your licenses are renewed yearly on your anniversary date and seats added part way through a subscription year will be pro-rated. The seats can then be administrated through the VIP admin console, accessed with your own login, where the admin can add, re-assign and deploy, using Creative Cloud Packager, their seats.
