From perpetual license to subscription, how it works

Going from a perpetual license to subscription is straightforward and easy.

You can either:

  • trade-in your current license to subscribe at a discounted rate,
  • or buy additional ones while keeping your perpetual license.

This will allow you to install the latest version of Modaris or Gerber AccuMark on the spot. There will be no need to re-adapt since your software will retain the same functional scope as your current one.

Additionally, you will no longer face the risk of losing and damaging your dongle, since you will be given a digital key for each new license.
