Corel today announces it is offering customers access to a wide selection of its flagship applications including CorelDRAW® Graphics Suite X7, WordPerfect® Office X7, Corel® PDF Fusion™, Corel® PaintShop® Pro X7 and WinZip® via AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps.

AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps allows customers to easily provision cloud-based desktops that enable end-users to access the documents, applications and resources they need with the device of their choice, including laptops, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android tablets, and zero clients. By supporting this service, Corel can offer its flagship Windows applications to customers using alternative platforms. With a few simple clicks, enterprise and education customers can offer users a high-quality desktop experience at an affordable cost.

"We are pleased that Corel is expanding its product offerings to AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps. With the addition of applications like CorelDRAW and PaintShop Pro, AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps is giving IT departments a flexible and cost effective way to offer the power of full-featured creative and productivity applications from any device, at any time with Amazon WorkSpaces delivery," said Dave McCann, Vice President, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Web Services, Inc.

Education and enterprise customers will now be able to offer the full power of Corel's desktop software in a bring-your-own-device environment. AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps can reduce the overall costs of procuring applications and also provides flexible licensing solutions that can be tailored to the client's specific needs.

"Many academic institutions in the Midwestern Higher Education Compact's 12 member states are looking for a solution that will enable them to offer teachers and students access to standardized applications, regardless of their personal device or supported platform - Windows, Mac, iOS or Android," said Nathan Sorensen, strategic IT procurement officer, Midwestern Higher Education Compact. "Corel software is an important part of the institutional curriculum and we look forward to exploring the new choices that AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps now provides to customers."

"Corel has been on the forefront of its work with Amazon Web Services with the introduction of WinZip on Amazon WorkSpaces a year ago," said Patrick Nichols, CEO, Corel. "Building on this success, we're excited to be expanding our offering to include four additional Corel products. As more academic and corporate environments move towards a bring-your-own-device model, AWS Marketplace for Desktop Apps gives users access to the full power of Corel's desktop apps, from virtually any platform they choose."
