Select your mix: flexible full-function and low-cost read-only user accounts

A full-function user account provides excellent flexibility for your product data contributors. It permits users to create new part, document and change records; add file attachments to the system library; review, comment on, and approve change forms; and configure the system through the administrator role. You can easily select (and edit) which permissions will be applied to each user account.

A read-only ("RO") account allows a user to view — but not create, edit or approve — data records and files in the PDXpert system.

When a user no longer needs access, simply delete the log-in account and re-assign it to another person.

All-inclusive subscription license

With a low upfront cost, our subscription licensing is a budget-friendly choice for starting your PLM system. A subscription license always includes a concurrent maintenance, support and upgrades (MSU) subscription.

Flexible subscription periods let you accommodate variations in your project staffing levels. For example, if you're starting a year-long project that will require less staff in the future, you may choose a 12-month subscription for the entire team, and then renew at the lower staffing level.

You can convert from a subscription license to perpetual license at any time, and we'll apply any unused portion of your current subscription.

Perpetual license with annual maintenance, support and upgrade

Perpetual licenses provide the best cost over the long term: purchase now and the license is yours forever. The perpetual license allows you to use PDXpert software on a single server for the licensed number of user accounts without any further payments or obligation.

An optional maintenance, support and upgrade subscription (described in the next section) allows you to install every new release that we publish during the subscription period.

Maintenance, support and upgrades ("MSU")

An annual maintenance, support and upgrade, or MSU, subscription includes all product improvements as well as technical and application assistance. Every user benefits from a well-maintained and upgraded system.

  • Maintenance responds to the ever-changing Windows environment. Maintenance activities include, for example, installers and application code for various versions of Windows; to support current SQL Server editions; to target 32bit and 64bit systems; to support Report Viewer, Office formats and other third-party components; and to respond to Microsoft security notices and service packs for Windows, SQL Server, .NET and Search.
  • Support provides assistance to administrators and other system users. This include questions about system installation, configuration and operation, as well as engineering data management good practices and process design trade-offs.
  • Upgrades add new features and improve performance and convenience. We typically publish between 3 and 5 releases each year that add new capabilities in response to product evolution and customer requests.

We recommend buying MSU for at least the first year to ensure that you obtain all of the setup and configuration support you may need, as well as valuable advice applying best practices to your environment.

Most people find our MSU to be quite valuable, as evidenced by the high renewal rate for MSU subscriptions.

Do you need both perpetual & subscription? No problem!

We can create hybrid perpetual/subscription licenses. These provide a "base" of perpetual licenses for long-term use, combined with shorter-term project-oriented subscription accounts. Please contact us for assistance.

No hidden license fees

Your PDXpert system always includes a PDXpert server license at no additional cost, as well as the free version of SQL Server Express that's appropriate for smaller systems. There are no premium-priced "administrator", "creator", or "approver" licenses — you can easily choose (and change) which permissions will be applied to each full-function user account.

Notes

  1. A named user account is one person who is assigned a unique log-in username (along with a security role and optional password). A license does not support concurrent, shared, floating or other multi-access user accounts.
  2. Calculations exclude government-imposed fees (sales taxes, import duties, etc.) and any optional services. All prices are subject to change without notice; refer to our standard sales terms and conditions.
  3. Each system requires at least one full-function account, which is assigned to the default "super administrator" user. In a single-user system, this user performs all configuration, data entry and change approval tasks.
