Save money on FME Desktop, FME Server, and/or FME Cloud as compared to one-off purchases.
Instead of filing paperwork and requests for each license, do it once every few years.
As your project progresses, add new FME licenses instantly, eliminating costly time and project delays.
Your costs are fixed for the length of your term, giving you budgeting certainty over several years.
Most ELAs let you use as many FME licenses as you want, without paying extra, for the length of your term.
Instead of multiple contracts to keep track of, combine everything into a single, centralized agreement.
An Enterprise License Agreement (ELA) is a multi-year, volume licensing agreement. For a fixed annual fee you will typically have unlimited access to FME Desktop and FME Server software licenses with annual maintenance included. ELAs are ideal for customers who want volume pricing, who anticipate increasing their FME usage over the next few years, or who require special arrangements. ELAs are typically available to customers with a large number of FME licenses.
An ELA does not include extra cost plugins (e.g. MapTextLabeller; MRFCleaner,etc.) or plugins distributed by third parties (e.g. 1Spatial Gothic, Axpand, GRIPS, etc.).
A Safe representative will work with you to estimate your FME needs over the next few years based on your organization size and potential usage scenarios. Contact email@example.com for more information.
You can pay upfront or in annual installments over the ELA term.
A standard ELA term is three years.
Yes. A Safe representative will work with you to determine the number of active FME licenses your organization has previously purchased. The Maintenance for those licenses can be rolled into the ELA.
At the end of an ELA term, you have the following options:
A. Negotiate a renewal of the ELA based on your anticipated needs over the next three years.
B. If you decide not to continue with an ELA, then you can keep any licenses deployed during the term of the ELA by purchasing Maintenance for the following year. Your right to use these licenses will be converted to a perpetual license. If you decide not to purchase Maintenance for one or more licenses, then you are required to uninstall and stop using those licenses. You can always acquire additional, individual licenses at Safe’s current list prices.
Yes, but the terms may be slightly different so check with them directly.
