With the release of steadyPRINT 7, a lot has happened apart from the new features – above all in the segment of licensing.
New: Premium subscription
The price for the regular subscription (service and support) is still 18% per year of the list price. As an alternative, we are now offering a premium subscription including service and a 24×7 support for which an annual fee of 25% of the list price must be paid.
Subscription: Discount graduation
Both subscription models can be purchased for a period of up to five years. If a multi-year contract is concluded, the following discounts will be granted: 2 years = 10%, 3 years = 15%, 4 years = 20%, 5 years = 25%
The list prices remain stable, there are no changes.
The Windows CAL is still mandatory and constant in terms of price. The prices for the Branch Office CAL, the VPD CAL and the VPD Basic CAL (incl. vPrinter, vDirect and SecurePrint) have been standardized in order to simplify the licensing system. A new addition is the VPD vFlow CAL for the new workflow printer.
Moreover, a steadyPRINT Suite is available and contains the Windows CAL, the VPD Basic CAL (inkcl. vPrinter, vDirect and SecurePrint), the VPD vName CAL as well as the new license for VPD vFlow.
For an overview of all licences, please refer to our homepage.
Until June 30, 2018, you will be granted a 30% discount on all new steadyPRINT Suite User CALs.
