The Cumulative Licensing Program (CLP) is a two-year licensing programme in which members place an initial order for Adobe Acrobat Pro 2020, Adobe Captivate, Presenter and other desktop software products.

CLP helps organisations that want to extend discount levels globally and to their affiliates and subsidiaries.
