  • Licensing: Customers with Perpetual

    Why subscription licensing going forward?

    With the launch of the OnePlaceMail App and roadmap for additional cloud-based offerings, licensing is provided on a back to back basis with the consumption model provided by Microsoft Azure.

    The subscription plans provide a single, simple licensing model for all our customers with defined plans, providing greater flexibility to mix the desktop software, OnePlaceMail App and add-ons to meet the varying and changing business requirements of our customers.

    What happens if I have an existing perpetual license?

    Customers who have previously procured perpetual licenses will retain these licenses. We’re not removing these licenses from our customers.

    Existing perpetual licenses count towards volume discounts under the subscription model and a single renewal date is retained for any additional purchases.

    For simplicity, your existing perpetual licenses will map to a subscription plan and any additional user licenses will be procured on this same plan.

    What happens if I cancel my subscription?

    Additional licenses puchased under subscription licensing will be deactivated. Your original user count of perpetual licenses will be re-instated for the desktop software. Therefore, you will have access to use you your original user count on a perpetual basis up to the current release as at the time of the subscription cancelation. You will not have access to technical support or any additional maintenance/upgrades provided under your subscription/support and maintenance.

    Can I purchase additional licenses on a perpetual basis?

    No, all new licenses are provided on a subscription basis. This ensures a single, simple licensing model moving forward while respecting any previous perpetual licenses purchased.

    Do existing perpetual licenses count towards volume discounts?

    Yes, volume discounts start at 200 users and increases as the volume of user licenses increase.

    Do I maintain a single renewal date?

    Yes, a single renewal and billing date is retained.

    How do I manage app users under subscription?

    • Licenses for the app are managed centrally via a single subscription key. A user will be associated with the subscription upon entering the Subscription ID within the app.
    • The subscription is bound to an Office 365 Tenant ID and therefore only allows users within this Office 365 environment to use the Subscription ID. If you have multiple Office 365 environments, Contact Us to allow additional Office 365 (Tenant ID’s) to be associated with your subscription.

    How do I update the app?

    Updates for the OnePlaceMail App are provided automatically as part of the centrally managed service in Microsoft Azure.

    How do I provide the subscription key to all my users?

    Each subscription has a unique Subscription ID. The Subscription ID must be entered once for each user and will be requested to be entered by the end user upon the first use of the app. Unfortunately, we don’t have a central mechanism to deploy a Subscription ID although we’re continuing discussions with Microsoft to make this easier.
