Multi-user and additional licenses

We offer special discounts for multi-user licenses. Please note that these can constitute a mix of Classic and DIGE licenses.

Customers with a current maintenance subscription qualify for a discounted price on additional licenses they would like to purchase.

Software upgrades and support

When purchasing a perpetual license, a two years maintenance subscription is included during which all technical support and software upgrades are free. Upon expiration of this period, you can renew your maintenance subscription for another two years. If your maintenance is still active, you can download the latest software version.

In case your maintenance subscription lapsed, you can purchase an upgrade to the latest version that will include a two years maintenance subscription. Discounts for such upgrades will depend on the version you are upgrading from. Therefore, when requesting a quote for an upgrade, please specify the latest version you have a license for.
