Scaling Without the Stress

The Challenge
Replacing Adobe with a scalable solution
Assurance – a “Top 50” broker among the largest and most awarded independent insurance brokerages in the U.S. – experienced significant growth and needed a PDF editor that could scale with the company. PDFs play a critical role in the daily processes of Assurance employees, who spend much of their time working with policy documents and contracts. The company’s existing licensing agreement with Adobe® Acrobat® was too expensive, preventing Assurance from being able to expand their deployment.
The Solution
A more affordable alternative
Assurance equipped many workers with Adobe Acrobat, but expanding that access to accommodate the company’s recent growth was cost-prohibitive. VP of IT, Jim Maza, led the initiative to find a much-needed, reliable replacement for Acrobat that aligned with Assurance’s bottom line.

The Results

In 2016, Assurance significantly reduced their PDF editor spend by signing a strategic 3-year contract with Nitro to replace all Adobe Acrobat licenses across the organization.
Customer centricity and customized training programs
Nitro’s Customer Success team, who Maza describes as “transparent” and “having a listening ear,” has played a central role in Assurance’s journey.
Preferred user interface
Assurance employees have voiced a preference for Nitro’s Office-inspired interface over the Adobe Acrobat interface they previously used.
Better cost structure
By offering superior licensing terms, Nitro saved Assurance over $100,000 and enabled the organization to continue providing a critical tool to all employees.
One of the best parts of the partnership thus far has been working with Nitro's Customer Success team - they're helpful, attentive, and clearly dedicated to providing a great customer experience.
