What is an Enterprise Subscription?
Speed up your projects by subscribing your organization to an Enterprise Subscription instead of managing numerous one-off licenses. For a lower up-front cost your team can deploy any combination of FME Desktop and FME Server within your chosen price.
Benefits of an Enterprise Subscription
Lower Acquisition Cost
Add new FME licenses for a lower up-front cost as compared to our traditional licensing model.
Reduced Procurement Costs
Save your finance team time by opting for a single subscription instead of having to process multiple one-off requests.
Eliminate Time Lag on Projects
Easily add new licenses as needed, never again letting your projects get delayed waiting on necessary licenses.
Pay once and you’re covered for 12 months. Renewal only occurs once per year, regardless of growth.
Support and Software Updates
Get access to the latest features and software updates to FME as they become available.
Flexibility to Scale
As your use of FME evolves and needs change, simply adjust your deployment of FME products, making growth easy.
Use as many FME Desktop and FME Server licenses you want for a fixed price. Unlimited subscriptions are available for select industries and allow your citizens to benefit from the same technology as bigger cities or organizations. Pricing is based on the size of your population / number of customers.
I have an existing Enterprise License Agreement (“ELA”). Do I need to move to the Enterprise Subscription?
No, you are welcome to stay with your existing ELA. The Enterprise Subscription is another option to deploy FME throughout your organization.
I have existing FME licenses. What happens to them under an Enterprise Subscription?
You have two choices for existing FME licenses:
(1) You continue paying maintenance on your licenses separately. Choosing this option will not count towards your threshold asset value.
(2) Or, you can roll your licenses into the Enterprise Subscription and pay the annual flat fee. This will ensure that maintenance for all your licenses are included in your new cost.
I recently paid my Annual Maintenance. Can I get a credit towards the Enterprise Subscription?
Yes. We provide a prorated credit for the number of months remaining in your AMC total. This will go towards your Enterprise Subscription for the first year.
What prices are used to determine the price for the FME asset value?
The pricing displayed in the tiers are based on our list prices. Please refer to your regional price list for accurate pricing.
Can you guarantee the pricing and threshold of the FME asset value for more than one year?
Yes. The Enterprise Subscription gives you the option for two additional one-year renewals using the same Tier Level pricing grid.
Can we go past the threshold of FME asset value for a given tier?
Yes. When you cross the tier threshold you will pay the new tier rate at your renewal date.
There are a limited number of tiers. What are the options when we reach the top tier?
Contact the Safe Software sales team or your existing partner and we would be happy to discuss your Enterprise Subscription needs.
I have a project that needs FME for a short period of time, can I use this for a project?
Yes. You can subscribe to an Enterprise Subscription subscription for one year and use it for your project.
What is your support policy?
We recognize the importance of providing useful and timely support to our users and believe it’s part of what sets Safe apart. Learn more about our support policy.
What is the difference between FME licenses purchased individually and licenses used under the Enterprise Subscription?
FME licenses that are purchased individually have a perpetual term. This grants continuous use of your FME licenses, but in order to receive upgrades and support, you will have to purchase annual maintenance.
FME licenses used under the Enterprise Subscription will timeout at the end of the subscription period unless you renew. You will have full access to support and upgrades at no additional cost during the subscription period.
What happened to the old tiers and thresholds?
Previously you could only subscribe to an Enterprise Subscription at five different tiers. You now have more flexibility and can choose an Enterprise Subscription at any price above the minimum annual price.
