are the facts?
software industry has become notorious for achieving extraordinarily
high gross margins and locking its customers into long-term
version upgrades with excessive maintenance charges. Software
companies routinely quote list prices then quickly revert
to a discount schedule that runs up to 50% or more off list.
Do you have to haggle over all of your business purchases
in this manner?
know that it is difficult to plan your budget when hardware and
software upgrades result in unexpected new license fees and continually
increasing annual maintenance charges. It's even worse if your
business is unpredictable or expanding rapidly.
past few years, software companies have announced a wide
range of new licensing options that claim to move away from
high license fees and recurring maintenance charges. However,
there is always some form of "payback" either at the end
of the term or through quarterly or annual license reconciliation.
With Bradmark's announcement of the Enterprise Software Agreement (ESA),
there is now a genuine alternative. If you want to move away from:
seat or server based pricing
recurring maintenance charges
or annual license reconciliations
enterprise-wide agreement for all licenses
quarterly or annual reconciliation for the term of the
maintenance schedules with pre-agreed terms
to the latest technology for database and operating system
monitoring and administration
trade-in terms for existing competitive licenses
return-on-investment compared with traditional license
