What is Adobe CLP?
The Contractual Licensing Program (CLP) is a flexible volume software licensing program offered through Adobe Open Options (AOO). It applies at least the same discount level to all of an organization's Adobe desktop software (including Macromedia) ordering during the life of the CLP agreement, based on the value of an initial order — but with no further order commitment beyond that initial order.
How does it benefit you?
In addition to volume pricing, CLP helps organizations cut costs by simplifying software ordering and administration in several ways. First, it provides you with a single licensing program membership that can be effective worldwide, so that you always get the same discount level regardless of your location or order quantity. Second, Adobe provides all CLP members with an easy-to-use, web-based licensing site that simplifies licensing administration and record-keeping.
To order Adobe desktop software after you become a CLP member, simply contact your Adobe License Center and provide them with your CLP membership number.
Your discount level is based on the size of your initial order of software licenses and Upgrade Plan. This discount level is applied to any subsequent orders in the two-year membership period. And all orders are cumulative, so additional purchases over the two-year term may qualify you for an even better discount level. (Note: Actual licensing procurement takes place through the Adobe License Center or a reseller, who determines your license price based on the discounts made available by Adobe.)
CLP is open to commercial, education, or government organizations; their point requirements, discount levels, and agreements may vary.
