If you work in the creative industries the Adobe Creative Suite offers the best tool to achieve your goals. Managing many software licenses can be a difficult task and poor management can lead to huge fines and a loss of productivity. But Adobe have created the Adobe Amin Console to manage this easily.
What is Adobe Admin Console?
Adobe Admin Console is a license management software available from Adobe to manage and control licenses on Adobe software and applications within a team. The Admin Console gives administrators the power to control staff licenses to Adobe products from a central point including installing on local machines, work with licenses for teams or individual users, activate or deactivate licenses and also monitor usage across your different staff and teams.
The Adobe Console is essentially a management tool, so you can easily view and manage how Adobe software is being used, and where, within your business. This means you can simply view unavailable, due for renewal or unused licenses for Adobe software so that nothing is missed in your business.
Adobe resellers can also manage who is buying their licenses via the Adobe Reseller Console with the same functionality.
