All Deskcenter usage and billing models at a glance
Buying and installing licenses, maintaining software, installing updates, running backups … Software operations used to be very one-dimensional. Today, you have very different options, on premises and from the cloud. Find the model that suits you at Deskcenter.
Software license purchase
Even though cloud solutions are becoming increasingly widespread: The traditional purchase of on-premise software licenses is still common. Here, you acquire a perpetual right to install the software in your infrastructure or the cloud, depending on the license type purchased, and to use it via your employees’ devices. There are no ongoing license costs, only an annual fee for customer support and technical upgrades. Additional licenses can be purchased at any time. The most important advantage of this model is that you can use the software indefinitely. This can bring you cost advantages over several years. The disadvantages are the commitment to the manufacturer and the comparatively higher start-up costs. If you like to “own” your software, you are well advised to buy a license. This license model is only available for end customers of Deskcenter. As a partner, you can choose from the following license models.
As an alternative to purchasing licenses, companies are increasingly opting for the time-limited use of software. The advantage is clear: the costs can be calculated in advance on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis – including customer support and upgrades. In addition, the scope can be flexibly adapted to your needs, depending on whether more or fewer assets need to be managed at any given time. It’s easier on the accounting side, too: no capitalization or depreciation is required on the balance sheet for clear-sized accounts. Even the change to another solution or software element at the end of the term can be flexibly implemented. However, this flexibility can lead to somewhat higher usage costs when viewed over several years. By making advance payments for the agreed term, however, it is often possible to achieve one or the other cost-saving effect. You can use the software in your IT environment or in the cloud, as you wish.
Pay per use for end customers and partners
With this modern form of use from the cloud, there are no limits to flexibility. There is even a billing model without any time or volume-based commitment. However, this model, known as pay-per-use, is associated with a corresponding surcharge to cover all the necessary setup costs.
Software as a Service (SaaS)
