No Server Hardware Required:
With FontAgent Pro CloudServer you don't need to purchase, manage and maintain expensive server hardware and software to manage your fonts and creative workflow across the enterprise. Instead of having to invest time and money on additional infrastructure, FontAgent Pro CloudServer provides powerful font management on a subscription basis. No server software installation or network configuration is required, enabling organizations to lower IT costs by using CloudServer to replace the complexity of server setup and maintenance.

* Automatically removes fonts from user workstations
* Provides and enforces consistent font usage across all users and projects

Simplicity and Consistency for CloudServer Users:
When users of FontAgent Pro CloudServer login for the first time, they install software, and fonts automatically download to their computer. Subsequently, FontAgent Pro automatically logs into the CloudServer and maintains their font collection, keeping it consistent with enterprise font licenses and the requirements of current projects.
The Power of Professional Font Management:
FontAgent Pro CloudServer delivers all the power of the top-rated FontAgent Pro font manager, which enables Mac and Windows to access, search, preview and print fonts as well as auto-activate fonts in top design apps including InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, InCopy, QuarkXPress and other Mac OS X applications.
Fast, Easy User Administration:
FontAgent Pro CloudServer administrators can authorize users, designate who can upload fonts to the server, and specify which fonts get automatically delivered to which users. The CloudServer also enables them to manage font licenses and track their usage in real-time.

After a free trial period, FontAgent Pro CloudServer is available by subscription and includes the use of the FontAgent Pro font manager, CloudServer access, free software updates, and access to web fonts, as well as centralized font storage and backup.
