What you are getting
Types of entitlements
A permanent entitlement does not expire and you will always be able to upgrade to any future software version by purchasing a Maintenance Subscription (1st year included free with new permanent entitlements)
The Flexible Entitlement is our new, time limited option, varying from 90 days to 1 year. Set them up, install across your classrooms and labs, but only pay for the amount of time that you need them. Flexible entitlements combine all the benefits of the permanent entitlement and the maintenance subscription without the upfront costs of permanent entitlement.
How are entitlements managed?
The discounted products are exactly the same as our commercial products and uses our enterprise-class licensing tool, PFBucket. PFBucket is designed for system administrators to deploy hundreds of entitlements with ease. It is included in the purchase of software entitlements.
How is Support provided?
Technical support is included for the period of a flexible entitlement or for 12 months following the purchase of a permanent entitlement(renewable annually afterwards). Communication with our support engineers is through a direct messaging system built into the PFBucket application. Technical support covers setting software up, entitlements management and bug reporting.
Operational support is not included, and we cannot offer any support services directly to students of any kind. Students and lecturers can enrol at the PFAcademy for product specific training and addition are encouraged to join our LinkedIn user group to discuss topics, share tips and ask for help using our products in the field.
