Building on the foundation of industry-leading font managers Suitcase Fusion and Universal Type Server, the Extensis Creative Intelligence Suite™ is an industry-first, all-in-one solution that unifies font and creative asset management. The suite was developed to simplify creative operations, remove barriers in creative projects, mitigate risk and provide new analytical insights to enable creative teams to take informed action. 
The Creative Intelligence Suite integrates with a host of popular design applications, such as Adobe Creative Cloud, making it an exciting add-on business opportunity for a reseller’s creative software portfolio. 
Computer Gross, Italian leader in value distribution, will be working with Extensis’ channel team to bring the Creative Intelligence Suite to existing and new resellers across Italy, providing them with supporting programs, including product training and marketing collateral.

Serena Rizzi, Business Unit Manager at Computer Gross, said: “We are a value-added distributor – the first one in Italy with around 15,000 customers – so the quality of the products we provide is imperative.”

About the Extensis Creative Intelligence Suite 

The Creative Intelligence Suite has two annual subscription levels: Extensis Connect℠ and Extensis Connect + Insight℠. 

Both tiers integrate with Adobe Creative Cloud, simplifying previously complicated and expensive processes for the end user.

• Extensis Connect™ is the industry’s first solution that unifies font and creative asset management. Teams of all sizes can now store all creative assets in one location, so the design elements needed for projects are easy to find, manage, share, and integrate with creative software including Adobe Creative Cloud. Connect adds a layer of security and reporting to creative operations through robust permission controls; font license management; single sign-on; and font usage, license compliance, and team utilization and activity reports. 

• Extensis Connect + Insight™ builds upon Connect, adding a layer of creative risk management that mitigates risk in all stages of the creative process, and reduces the need for last minute project auditing fire drills. Connect + Insight’s Project Risk Scanning scans for font usage risks within projects before production, pinpoints identified risks in project files, and provides a Font Risk Assessment Report with suggested steps for risk resolution. This report addresses six critical font risk areas: missing fonts (including system and subscription fonts), unlicensed fonts, font licenses expiring in less than 90 days, expired font licenses, over utilized font licenses (fonts installed on more systems than the license allows), and outdated font formats.
