Each license of our software comes with one year of software maintenance, which includes updates and electronic support. This maintenance is renewable at any time, and is optional.
Annual maintenance renewals cost roughly 20% of the license cost.
Be sure to keep a safe archive of the installation media for the version that you purchased and are using in your software. Only the latest version is kept on our website and only for customers with an active maintenance agreement.
We've been using software licensing technology since 1988. There are many very expensive systems out there that deliver far less than SoftwareKey. Protection PLUS is easier to use than the hardware keys we'd used for decades, implementation is faster, more key-based options can be stored, and it's less expensive on an annual basis than both hardware keys and many competitive software solutions we investigated.
Licensing is an unfortunate necessity to prevent theft. This solution saves significant time that otherwise might be spent programming individual hardware keys (dongles), and the responsibility of key programming has been off-loaded to accounting personnel rather than taking up time for engineering personnel.
We stand behind our products and services. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your Protection PLUS purchase and we are unable to remedy the situation, simply contact us within 30 days of receipt and we will gladly provide a refund.
