 Perpetual License vs. Subscription

Which is Right for You?

What is the difference between a subscription and a perpetual license.

Purchase a Perpetual License

When you purchase Impact Suite you are purchasing an Impact Suite product license. Your perpetual license never expires.

For example,  if you purchased Impact Suite v6 two years ago, you can use it forever. Under this traditional software model, you purchase a license that provides your organization with the perpetual right to use the software. Impact Suite will work with the version of ACT! which was available at the time only. We cannot guarantee that version of Impact Suite will work with newer versions of ACT! as they are released.

Purchase a Subscription

For new and improved Impact Suite features, full compatibility with the latest releases of ACT!, Office and Windows, and/or maintenance releases when they come out, purchase a subscription instead.

The advantage of a subscription over a license is that you receive software updates automatically, so you have the latest and greatest version as soon as new functionality is ready and released. As the software becomes more efficient, you become more efficient too!
Along with updates, you receive technical support at no additional cost. A subscription includes complete access to the Durkin Computing Technical Support Team. This is not included in a license.

With a subscription you also receive a discounted price on training. Our Remote Training sessions are designed to fit around your working day. Learn Impact Suite from your office at a time that suits you. We have a selection of training sessions that range from our 2 hour QuickStart program to a block of 10 hours for your entire staff.
