    Licensing - Subscription or Purchase

    I am wondering if anyone has an opinion with regards to whether we should go with the newer paid subscription licensing or stick with the older buy once and pay for a support contract to keep the product up-to-date. To be more specific we have 1-FTViewSE Server, 4-FTViewSE Client, 1-FTViewSE Studio, and 1-FTHistorian licenses that we will need to upgrade to the latest versions and expand the screen count.

    Good morning @ktseifert,

    If you just need to upgrade to the latest rev, I would request a quote for a 12 month support contract on the licenses you need to update.

    From my perspective, the new "software leasing" program only makes sense if you don't already have the software.

    On a personal note, I have to add that I'm disappointed they raised the list price of their software to make the leasing options look more appealing, but even still the leasing prices are very expensive.

    Best of luck,
