We have been hard at work for the last several years on the next generation of AFT software products. These new versions will extend AFT’s leadership in the global marketplace and offer engineers unprecedented modeling and user interface capabilities.
Many of our products have had no price increases for five or even ten years. Further, we will be bundling modules into AFT Fathom 8 and AFT Arrow 5 which in the past were offered at extra cost. US customers can see the new pricing at the links below. International customers should contact their distributors for new pricing information.
Second and additional licenses on the same order will receive a 10% discount. If a client has a current SUM and orders new licenses of a product, they will receive a 10% on all new licenses of that product.
SUM prices for AFT Fathom 8 will not change from current prices until October 1, 2012 at the earliest. Other SUM prices will go into effect when each new version is released.
For the first time ever, AFT will offer a corporate pricing program. Corporate pricing will provide 20-40% off standard prices. Details are discussed in a separate article here.
The AFT Fathom CST and NSL modules will no longer be offered as separate items but will be part of the core AFT Fathom 8 product. Similarly the AFT Arrow CST module will be part of the core product.
The AFT Fathom 8 SSL module will have some significant enhancements which will be announced at a future date.
Package discounts for buying modules at the same time as full licenses will be discontinued.
For many years AFT has offered quarterly leases. These will still be the same as before. For the first time AFT will offer annual leases.
Leases: prices for upcoming AFT products to go into effect at the release of each new version
Companies who lease a product can get credit for one full quarter towards a full license purchase if the order is placed before the end of the lease. Modules will no longer be leased.
