Upgrade Policy

If replacing existing licences, customers will be eligible for a 60% discount if renewing up to 12 months from the initial purchase date. This reduces linearly to a 20% discount over the next 12 months.

Customers are eligible for any major upgrades (e.g. 2.x to 3.x) in the 12 months from the initial purchase date.

Customers are eligible for minor upgrades (e.g. 2.8 to 2.9) in perpetuity. A licence therefore covers maintenance of the software up until a new major release. If a support request is made against an earlier major version than the current major version, it will only be fixed in the current major version. This may require the customer to purchase an upgrade.

To receive your discount, please contact us with your customer identifier and details of the licences your are upgrading.
