Subscription licenses are loaded with advantages!
But you can still buy perpetual licenses. The choice is yours!
Get a subsciption license of our new electrical CAD software ELECTRIX and the benefit is yours.
From a financial point of view subscription licenses are an obvious choice: for the first seven (!) years the cumulated cost of subscription is lower than that of a perpetual license with maintenance. And subscription requires a lower initial invest than a perpetual license. So money that you would spend to buy a perpetual license becomes available for other purposes.
Subscription maximises profit
Perpetual licenses are capital goods and their depreciation period lasts several years. So if you are spending money today to buy a perpetual license, only a part of the sum is reducing your tax this year. Subscription licenses on the other hand are expenses that can be deducted 100% in the current year, therefore minimising your taxable income. We are happy to share a exemplary calculation with you.
Subscription licenses include software updates and upgrades. The maintenance of a perpetual license only includes software updates. And if you should ever need an additional temporary license, it is included for 4 weeks in your subscription. Also part of your subscription is a yearly online training because we want to make sure you know the latest tips & tricks in electrical engineering.
Five reasons why subscription is the right choice:
For a timeframe under seven years, cumulated costs for subscription are lower than those for perpetual licenses (purchase and maintenance).
Subscription licenses come with significantly lower initial cost. Cash flow becomes available for other purposes.
WSCAD subscription licenses are a profit maximiser: purchasing a software license requires you to depreciate the license over several years. In other words, you spent money today but you can only deduct it from tax over several years. Subscription licenses are operating expenses and can be deducted 100% in the current year, lowering you taxable income immediately.
Flexible license pool
We know that projects don’t always run as planned. So if you should temporarily need a second software license, you can easily get it for free, for 4 weeks. A temporary second license is included in your software subscription and you can use it at no extra charge for up to 4 weeks.
