OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/13 -- Editor's Note: There are four photos associated with this press release.
In response to growing concerns over shrinking education budgets and costly, restrictive licensing from some providers of creative software, Corel has introduced a new Education Licensing Program. Based on customer and partner feedback, the new program provides K-12 and Higher Education institutions with aggressively-priced single and multi-seat options and easy-to-understand and manage licensing terms free of contracts, buy-ins or fine print, making it the perfect alternative to the costly competition.
The new structure includes the entire, comprehensive range of Corel® software, from the graphics power of CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite to the easy-yet-impressive photo and video editing capability of Corel® PaintShop® Pro and Corel® VideoStudio® - at just dollars per seat!
"Corel is a company that talks and listens to our customers, and we keep hearing the same thing: we need creative software and our budgets can't handle the prices and terms we're facing from the incumbent," said Jon Riis, VP North America License & Channel Sales. "We're taking action to address this. Our new education licensing program delivers high-quality, budget-friendly solutions that are easy to learn and use, making it easier for instructors to equip their students with vital technology skills," added Riis.
"When I started my digital design and graphics program, I of course considered the Adobe suite of products. After looking at all of the factors, it was an easy decision to go with Corel. I don't teach software, I teach students fundamental skills, and I've been able to keep my program running and funded for several years now for less than a single year's cost of the competition," said Allen Brooks, Technology Teacher, San Elijo Middle School.
Beyond flexible terms and competitive pricing, Corel's Education Licensing Program allows educational institutions purchasing site licensing and maintenance to set up a program that enables both students and faculty to purchase a personal copy as an electronic download for as little as $10 USD.
