Adobe Systems to Bring pay-per-use Software to India

KOLKATA: Adobe Systems, the company that owns the popular photo-editing software Adobe Photoshop, is working on offering its latest suite of
software solutions on a subscription basis and on a pay-per-use basis for customers in emerging markets including India.

“Our engineers are working on offering the latest suite of Adobe software - the CS5 on a pay-per-use basis and also on subscription basis,” Mr Prabhjeet Singh, head, marketing for Adobe Systems India told reporters. He was here to launch the CS5 suite in Kolkata on Tuesday.

Offering a piece of software on a pay-per-use basis means an individual can use the software as he requires through the internet. He pays based on the number of hours he uses it or some other metering system.
