    I wonder if Licence Dashboard will be discussed? I use the standard edition because there

    are only 50 people in the office. We are a graphic design company and use software like Photoshop. We’ve found that Licence Dashboard

    means we never forget to renew our licences! We once managed to completely forget and ended up being faced with a huge fine, so it’s

    good to hand over the responsibility to a piece of software! It’s really easy to use tool. Here’s their product page:

    This is pretty low. The story just didn’t sound right, so after reading your notes, Martin, I

    sent the link to a Senior Manager of Adobe’s Volume Licensing. She told me that Adobe does not sell subscription licensing to corporate

    customers. There is a serious credibility issue here.
