Maintenance is optional and provides you with priority technical support and access to all software updates during your maintenance period. This includes major and minor releases, which include new features, improvements to the documentation, bug fixes, and support for the latest versions of Microsoft Excel.
If you purchase an annual license, maintenance is included in the cost and terminates when the license expires. Therefore maintenance is not available separately.
If you purchase a perpetual (non-expiring) license, 1-year of maintenance is included with the initial purchase. You can extend maintenance for either another 1- or 3-years at a time, and we will notify you shortly before maintenance expires so you can renew. You can let maintenance lapse and still continue to use the software up to the latest version released within your maintenance period.
