We've always prided ourselves on being able to stay ahead of the technology curve, no not because
we're techno-nerds, but because we recognize how advantageous it is to our clients to be able to flex
our "massive" technology muscles when needed. We have substantial resources at our disposal that put
us ahead of the game.
2015 saw a change to a cloud-based (CC) rental system for software and this is good but it also
presented new challenged to us. Our investment in software is substantial. For example,
with Flash we already owned more than 350 seats when CC was first introduced and this potentially
meant that our owned systems would very quickly become redundant. Not a good thought financially.
However, Macro-Media supported us along the way and I am happy to report that our transition has
been smooth and effective. We're able to use the latest CC Flash versions when our clients require it.
The good news for us is that once the whole market converts across to cloud-based (latest) versions (which
they have no choice in), we will no longer have to compete against projects that undermine us by using
pirated software. CC means that you can't get your hands on a pirate copy, which levels the playing
field and makes us very happy indeed!
