The new Performance Plans give customers more flexibility around purchasing software.
Amann Girrbach has announced it will be offering a new service that offers more flexibility and regular program updates. As part of the new Performance Plans, customers not only will have the option of buying software programs but also of renting them, according to a press release from the company.
The new Performance Plans represent an alternative to purchasing, and offer several benefits, such as lower entry costs, flexible selection options, and included upgrades. The prices for the software plans include the license as well as any upgrades. New upgrades are said to be made available on a regular basis so customers can benefit from new workflows to optimize processes, from new indications and materials, or from process optimizations, the company’s press release read. The number of included software modules can be adapted flexibly to the respective requirements. Additionally, customers will have the choice of different plans for hardware maintenance and repair.
"The idea behind the new Performance Plans is to offer our customers an all-round carefree package,” explains James Rushton, head of global service at Amann Girrbach. “Our customers should always be in a position to use our system optimally and be up to date at all times—the flexible solutions tailored to their individual needs make this possible while at the same time keeping entry costs low…Customers will therefore be able to decide for themselves whether they wish to buy or rent the CAD/CAM software license. By doing so, Amann Girrbach is following the cross-industry trend towards subscription models.”
