Genarts now offering Maintenance Subscriptions....
on Feb 10, 2014 at 7:05:50 pm

I received an e-mail this morning where Genarts is now offering a yearly maintenance contract similar to Cinema 4d.
----------------------
Stay Current with the Latest Version of Sapphire!

By joining the Maintenance and Support program, you can stay current with the latest version of Sapphire. For a yearly fee, you will receive the following:

- All upgrades and point releases within term of contract
- Upgrades to floating licenses
- Unlimited burn and render licenses
- Lower per license cost
- and Priority tech support

-----------------------------

Price for the upgrade (which many don't upgrade each year) for Sapphire Ae/Pr/FCP is $499, whereas this new model has it $306/yr. Rather a good deal, and it keeps users in a "subscription" type model yet able to opt out. Win/win....

Why can't Adobe do this "upgrade" model???

I did see something about that on their website. Does this mean you get the old school license after a set period and later can get out of the subscription? It also looks like a better deal as an outright license is more expensive. It has my interest.

Disclaimer says in order to start, one must have the most current version, either via upgrade or purchase. But that's fair overall, and they make a great product.
