Q. How can I get pricing information?

Prices vary based on region. Contact your local sales partner for more details, or complete this form.

Q. Do you offer Enterprise License Agreements (ELAs)?

Yes, enterprise license agreements are available to customers with a large number of FME licenses. An ELA is like an all-you-can-eat buffet. You pay an annual fee and for the length of your agreement (typically three years) you can use as many FME licenses as you wish, with annual maintenance included and zero cost increases. ELAs are ideal for new or existing organizations who want volume pricing and customers anticipating increasing usage or who require special arrangements – e.g. customized training or support. For more information, please contact your account manager or local partner to discuss your needs and how an ELA might work for you ( or +1-604-501-9985 ext 287).
