Software licensing


Perpetual vs Subscription licensing

Perpetual Licenses is how traditional software has been acquired until now. Perpetual licensing includes the initial purchase cost, plus an annual maintenance fee that entitles the owner to all updates and helpdesk support. 

Software Subscription is a payment structure that allows a customer to utilize the software for a specific period of time for a set price that usually includes maintenance and helpdesk support.

Remain Software offers both subscription and perpetual licensing for our signature change-management solutions, TD/OMS and Gravity. Whichever option you choose, we’re invested in your best interest. Both options offer the same software functionality; and if you obtain a perpetual license and at some point discontinue maintenance, the solutions will still function even though you would no longer be entitled to helpdesk support and updates.
