Sinking Ship’s nearly 125 team members work at five locations across Toronto to create its award-winning shows. By standardising all creators on Adobe Creative Cloud for teams, Sinking Ship is improving both licence management and collaboration across departments.
Previously, managing versions, updates and software across locations was time consuming. Now, an administrator can assign licences from a central location. Everyone works on the same version of software, which eliminates incompatibilities that might slow down collaboration among employees.
“Managing licences and deployment is far easier with Adobe Creative Cloud for teams,” says Bishop. “We have more flexibility to adjust to the needs of each project and experiment with new apps. If someone is on the All Apps plan and wants to explore a new app, such as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, we can provide access without any additional risk or investment.”
The ability to create packages further improves the administrator’s ability to control licences and streamline deployment. People generally need different software depending on their department and role. Editors need Premiere Pro, Media Encoder and After Effects, while members of the art department need Photoshop and Illustrator. By creating different packages, the administrator can distribute the correct software with just a few clicks.
“Learning and fun are cornerstones of Sinking Ship, both in our shows and how we work,” says Bishop. “By using Adobe Creative Cloud for teams, we’re spending less time on management and more time being creative. It’s a true game-changer for us.”
