Software Upgrade Policy
Posted by Jester Santos on 03 Oct 2013

Minor Updates:
When you purchase any of our Horizon DataSys software products, all in-version updates of your product are free. In-version or minor updates are updates of which the first version number has not changed. For instance - if you've purchased version 9.0, you can upgrade to version 9.1 free of charge. 

If you have subscribed to our annual support program (GOLD or PLATINUM) which is offered at the time of purchase - you will receive free major updates and upgrades as well as prioritized technical support. 
Annual support services can only be purchased at the time of purchase.

Customers that have not purchased annual maintenance will need to check back periodically at our website for any available minor updates.

Major Upgrades:
Major upgrades are indicated by a change in the product version number. So an upgrade from 9.x to 10.x is a major upgrade. Major upgrades usually have a significant amount of improvements and new features.
Therefore, you will have to pay an upgrade fee if you want to take advantage of a major update or version upgrade. For clients that have purchased annual maintenance (Gold & Platinum support) the cost to upgrade to would be as follows:
