In 2010, the company’s IT stakeholders faced challenges with their current deployment of Adobe® Acrobat®. Due to its high cost and complicated licensing model, Adobe proved unfeasible to expand beyond a select group of users.
- Continental had a limited deployment of Adobe Acrobat, but was unable to standardize on the solution due to its high cost-per-license.
- The majority of Continental’s users were left without the means to work with PDF documents in a meaningful, productive way.
- Because Continental sought to scale to so many more users, they needed an alternative PDF solution that would be easy to handle—for IT and end users alike.
The Adobe tools are very expensive tools, with many overloaded features our users aren’t using.
The Nitro Difference
After an initial test deployment, Continental steadily doubled its Nitro license count year after year, ultimately equipping over 12,000 global employees with Nitro’s document productivity tools in 2015.
Ease of deployment
Nitro’s simple enterprise deployment provided a single enterprise key, giving Continental many options for rolling out the software to users as efficiently as possible.
The broad scale of Continental’s Nitro deployment has enabled the organization to reduce paper use and pave the way for a global paperless initiative.
The Continental team was impressed with the way Nitro approached the relationship from the start, treating it as a true partnership and always working to ensure the solution was a proper fit for the company’s needs.
