  • ProTee Subscription Vs. Perpetual License explained

    We get a lot of questions about the Subscription vs. Perpetual License purchase options for The Golf Club Simulator.

    Perpetual License
    If you have strong feelings about the fact that you want to own the software you should buy a Perpetual license. The first investment is higher than a Subscription license but you can use the software as long as you wish.

    One time payment. Validity – Perpetual. Entitlement – Software license alone. Email support and updates are included.

    • You own the software
    • Software will never expire
    • Software can be transferred
    • Costs less over time
    • Higher up-front cost
    Renting software on a subscription basis, rather than buying a so-called perpetual license, is the newest model of software purchasing. Instead of paying a large sum up front, you’re billed annually in a contract that you can cancel at the end of a subscription period. When you are on an annual budget the Subscription license would be a better choice because the first investment is smaller than that of a Perpetual license.

    Annual, recurring payment. Validity – 12 months. Entitlement - software license, Email support and updates are included.

    • It’s cash friendly
    • Nothing is owned at the end of the subscription period
    • Software can not be used anymore when you cancel your subscription
    • Software can not be transferred
    • Expensive in the long run
    Subscriptions ("renting") have a lower initial price but cost more over time and stop working if you do not renew. Perpetual Licenses cost more up-front, less over time, and never expire.

    Which is best? The decision is entirely up to you. There is no difference in the functionality of the software for the two licensing methods or the support you get from ProTee.
