Precisely announces Subscription Licensing for MapInfo Pro
Like many software vendors, Precisely has moved to Subscription Pricing and Licensing for all new licences purchased from 1st July 2021.
This is great news for new customers who would have been looking to purchase MapInfo Pro for £1,660 + VAT – as the new pricing is only £590 + VAT per annum.
What is more, is that it includes MapInfo Pro Advanced, new software releases and technical support!
If you are on a current Maintenance And Technical Support (MATS) contract with an existing perpetual licence, then you can carry on with that model and also add more licences in the usual manner. There is an option to switch over to the Subscription model for the same annual price that you are paying for MATS – and you will gain from having the Advanced version too. This means that you would lose the “perpetual” aspect of the MapInfo licence.
If you have dropped out of the annual MATS contract and want to upgrade to the latest version of Mapinfo Pro (maybe you are still on a 32-bit version), then you would go straight onto the Subscription Licence. This is also cheaper than the upgrade + MATS cost.
If you have any questions or need pricing (there is still discounts for multiple licences), then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
MapInfo Training has re-started
This pandemic has been a pain hasn’t it!
We took the decision to give up our training/conference room – particularly as it just wasn’t being used. We were also able to re-let the unit to a local business. In fact, Eccles Farm Business Centre is FULL. We weren’t expecting that 18 months ago!!
So now we have re-furbished the large room upstairs in the Farm House ready to start our MapInfo training courses again. Bruce and John are also going out to client sites to provide training in Covid safe environments. For those moving up from 32 to 64-bit MapInfo, our one day Transition course is proving popular for those getting to grips with the new interface and functions.
