Extensis Partners with QBS Software to Expand Its Reseller Program in France

QBS will extend the reach of the Extensis Creative Intelligence Suite to creative businesses across France 

March 13, 2024 Extensis®, the global leader in innovative font, creative asset, and creative risk management solutions, has selected multinational software distributor QBS Software to expand Extensis’ channel reseller program in France and drive growth in Europe. 

QBS is a key player in software distribution, offering a unique combination of technology, specialist skills and trusted relationships. QBS will support Extensis in making its Creative Intelligence Suite℠ available to more creative and design businesses across the country through a network of value-added resellers. 

Extensis’ Creative Intelligence Suite is the industry’s first all-in-one solution for font and creative asset management. It integrates with popular creative applications, including Adobe Creative Cloud, to streamline design processes, reduce costs and mitigate risk for design businesses. 

QBS will provide resellers looking for growth within their software portfolios a host of training and sales incentives to help them get the most out of the Extensis Creative Intelligence Suite. 

Frédéric Vartanian, Country Manager QBS Software France, said: “We are known for providing partners with software that improves their processes, so we are always looking for innovative solutions to add to our portfolio. The Creative Intelligence Suite is exactly the type of product that we want to bring to the market as it is a completely unique solution that will increase the end user efficiency significantly. We are excited to see the impact it will have on the creative sector in France.”

The Creative Intelligence Suite includes two annual subscription levels: Extensis Connect℠ and Extensis Connect + Insight℠. Both will now be available to resellers as add-on revenue opportunities for their portfolios, accompanying Adobe Creative Suite, among other design applications.

Hakim Bouacha, Channel Manager – EMEA at Extensis, said: “Partnering with QBS Software is a significant move for our European Channel Reseller Program due to the scale and experience of the company. With the team’s experience, I am confident that they will provide fantastic opportunities for the reseller network.”

QBS and Extensis will be exhibiting together at IT Partners France, taking place at Disneyland Paris on March 13 and 14, 2024. 

About the Creative Intelligence Suite

The Creative Intelligence Suite has two annual subscription levels:  

  • Extensis Connect is the industry’s first solution that unifies font and digital asset management. Teams of all sizes can now store 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 includes 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.
