IDM now has a subscription solution, but do you want to subscribe? There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to that question, but I’m going to try to point you in the right direction.
For personal use, what does your money get you?
Well… Pretty much everything we publish, plus some applications you’re likely to want to use for personal stuff too.
- All IDM apps (which, for Windows, include UltraEdit, UEStudio, UltraCompare, UltraFinder, UltraSentry)
- The mobility [USB] versions of UltraEdit and UltraCompare
- The Mac and Linux versions of UltraEdit and UltraCompare
- Complimentary access to upgrades for all titles and platforms as they become available
If you’re trying to do the math on the deal, start by considering how many computers you plan to use our apps with.
- For 1 PC, IDM All Access is $99.95/yr
- 2 PCs: No extra charge
- 3 PCs: No extra charge
- 4 PCs: No extra charge
- 5 PCs: No extra charge
So what is your particular situation?
“I have a bunch of personal computers and all I need is a personal UE/UC license.”
Let’s compare license options. IDM All Access delivers impressive bang for the buck. Even if you bought just one of IDM’s powerful programs, paying for multiple copies would quickly add up. Add a second IDM title and buy multiple copies of that… It doesn’t take much to quickly realize how cost effective the IDM All Access solution is. You get all five of our products! Installation authority on 5 machines, supported Mac and Linux versions, plus our mobility, for one low annual fee.
Of course, your subscription includes all the upgrades that come along throughout the year for all apps.
“I want the latest features as fast as possible, but I am averse to paid upgrades.”
The core of the IDM All Access subscription is a suite of great apps…but like all apps, they require updating. Any given year, IDM releases at least two and somtimes three upgrades per title to keep step with technology and computing trends. These updates give subscribers real-time access to our latest versions without the need to pay more for a conventional upgrade. With IDM All Access, upgrades are always included!
“I’m worried what will happen to my stuff if I stop subscribing.”
You can cancel your subscription anytime, and you won’t lose the documents you created. You’ll still be able to open your files in a boxed copy of any of our programs or other applicable programs.
For the enterprise: Time is money; IDM All Access saves time…and money.
“How does the All Access subscription save my team time?”
The size of worldwide data now doubles every 18 months. That’s a lot of data! To address that business need, IDM apps are fully integrated so your team can edit, modify, compare, sync, merge, track, find, and securely store/retire data… Fast and accurately.
If your team is not working on a common toolset, they are loosing time. Dissimilar tools slow the data review process. Dissimilar tools cause delays while discrepancies are investigated. Dissimilar tools slow down the operations between departments and worldwide locations. By using IDM’s suite of powerful fully integrated tools, your team, your managers, your departments, and your enterprise will be connected to your data seamlessly.
“How does the All Access subscription save my company money?”
If you bought shrink-wrapped copies of each individual IDM product, that would cost well over $400. Because staying current is essential in professional computing, annual paid upgrades to those applications would cost $100’s per year — and that is just for a single PC. IDM All Access saves you big bucks up front, substantially lowers your annual upgrade costs, and allows your teams to enjoy a common toolset, saving them time and increasing productivity.
Fortune 500/1000 companies trust IDM products to save time and money everyday, worldwide. For business, the IDM All Access is sold by the seat and generously discounted at published tiers. Companies have been enjoying the saving of SAAS models for years, that savings is now available for IDM’s corporate community. Whether you need 10, 100, 10,000, or 25,000+ seats, we have made the IDM All Access an irresistible proposition. Get your online quote here.
The bottom line: For personal use, IDM All Access is anywhere from a respectable deal to an aggressively excellent one. For business use, it’s a no-brainer!
No matter what license solution fits you best, it’s our goal to provide you the greatest value at the absolute most affordable price.
