We offer optional support contracts in combination with a new product license, or to renew an existing support contract. An active support contract includes the following advantages:
technical support with short response times
all minor (maintenance) and major (functional) updates included
early availability of bug fixes
maintenance releases and technical support available until the end of a product’s lifetime
additional licenses can be purchased until the end of the product's lifetime
Customers without an active support agreement can only use the licensed version, but not any later maintenance updates. This differs from earlier versions where we offered maintenance updates on a voluntary basis.
For a detailed description of support benefits refer to our General License and Support Conditions. The support fee is 20% of the license fee per year.
Support contracts can optionally be renewed automatically every 12 months until the support is expressly terminated by the customer. In order to terminate a support agreement with automatic renewal please inform us one month before the support expires.
An update changes an existing license to a license for a functionally enhanced version of the same product on the same platform. An update invalidates the old license. A valid license key must be supplied with an update order. The following table indicates the fees for various update combinations as a percentage of the target product’s list price:
|To||PLOP 4||PLOP DS 4|
|PLOP DS 5.1||-||60%|
Volume discounts are available for multiple licenses of the same product according to the table below, provided all licenses are ordered with a single combined order.
