New Corporate Pricing Program for AFT Products
Beginning with the release of AFT Fathom 8 in the third quarter of 2012, AFT will be offering for the first time ever a corporate purchasing program. This program will offer substantial discounts on new software licenses, SUM maintenance licenses, and training. The discounts will be based on the quantity of licenses with current SUMs. The SUM is a Support, Upgrade and Maintenance program AFT has offered since 2000.
Corporate clients can qualify for one of three levels: Platinum, Gold and Silver. Platinum corporate clients will receive a 40% discount on all software and training purchases from AFT. Gold level will receive a 30% discount. Silver level will receive a 20% discount.
The corporate level is determined by how many SUMs are currently maintained by clients and a point scale for each SUM.
Table 1. Points towards corporate licensing.
Clients achieve different corporate pricing levels by the total number of points they have with current SUMs as in Table 2.
Table 2. Point levels for each corporate level
For example, consider a client called Mountain Top Engineering who has current SUMs for 10 AFT Fathom licenses, 4 GSC licenses for AFT Fathom, 2 XTS licenses for AFT Fathom, 3 AFT Arrow licenses and 1 AFT Impulse license. Their point total is:
Table 3. Points for Mountain Top Engineering company.
Based on Table 2, Mountain Top Engineering with 74 points would be a Silver Corporate client and be eligible for a 20% discount on any future software purchase or SUM renewals. Platinum and Gold corporate clients would receive discounts also on training seminars. Software purchases (including modules) are eligible for discounts regardless of whether the client has purchased that product or module before. Discounts on leases are not available.
Discounts on training apply for seminars at client sites or at AFT hosted seminars.
