Why did JMP come to us?
After being advised to invest in Adobe CS5.5 Design Premium, the company quickly realised that they wouldn’t require much of the suite’s web design functionality, and asked to crossgrade 70 of their 100 licences to Design Standard in order to avoid unnecessary expense. They also wanted to upgrade to the latest version of Creative Suite, CS5.5.

What did they need?
JMP wanted to crossgrade their existing Adobe Creative Suite licences to Adobe Design Standard.

How did we help?
We clarified the guidelines around Adobe licensing, and helped JMP understand that they could save money by crossgrading their licences rather than buying new ones outright.

What were the benefits?
JMP’s staff now have the version of Adobe Creative Suite best suited to their needs, and a licensing agreement that gets them the best possible deal on the software, and allows for more predictable software budgeting.

“It was clear that Jigsaw24 had a comprehensive knowledge of the Adobe offerings, that we are now able to take advantage of with version 5.5. Jigsaw24 were easy to deal with, and I would recommend them as an organisation to work with in the future.”

Tony Skipper, Managing Director, JMP.
