Flexible Purchase and Rental Options
You can purchase PROKON modules or rent them on an annual basis:
- Annual rental: Programs expire after twelve months. During your rental term, you are eligible to free program updates and technical support. When you renew your annual rental again, you do not need to order the same modules again. The annual rental fee is typically equal to one third of the purchase price. This option provides the best flexibility in your license with minimal initial expense.
- Purchase: Permanent right to use the software. Free program updates and technical support (collectively referred to as software maintenance) is available for a period of one year. You purchase an upgrade at any time and extend the software maintenance again by another year. The upgrade fee is typically set at 20% of the prevailing price multiplied by the number of years since purchase or last upgrade. For best value, enter into a maintenance agreement -- continuous software maintenance at a preferential annual upgrade fee of 15%.
Each set of programs ordered has a number of workstations allocated to it. The number of workstations represents the number of computers that can simultaneously access the set of programs. One workstation, for example, can be used on one computer at a time. It can also be installed on a network server and accessed by a single user at a time. Similarly, two workstations can be used on two stand-alone computers, or on a network server and accessed by up to two users at a time.
When ordering multiple workstations, the second and following workstations may be eligible for a discount. With the exception of Padds, additional workstations cost only 40% of the normal price (i.e. a discount of 60%).
Note: Different pricing structures apply to Prodesk Suite, Probar 2D (formerly AutoPadds), Pronet and products supplied by Autodesk. Refer to the relevant product pages for more information.
