A lot of companies and software developers have preceded us. From 1 January 2023, our PreCastOffice software will only be available through a subscription. PlanDesk 360, our web-based applications, are only available via a subscription model from launch.
For other software modules, such as AutoFloor and PlanDesk, we have been offering the option to purchase with a maintenance contract or a subscription for some time now. Many recent new customers have opted for a subscription.
A subscription model offers a lot of advantages. Firstly, the number of licenses can be handled flexibly. Capital investment normally required for the purchase of software is reduced, and costs can be spread over a longer period. Subscriptions are available on a quarterly and annual basis.
Licenses that were purchased in the past and for which a maintenance contract was concluded will continue to run as normal.
