FileMaker Annual Volume Licensing and Annual Site Licensing

Budget friendly software from FileMaker

The FileMaker Annual Volume License and Annual Site License programs are a great way for your customers to get the software they need at a price they can afford. The Annual License cost is just 1/3 that of a standard volume license or a site license!

What are the benefits of Annual Licensing?
  • Predictable budgeting. The annual license is renewable on the same date every year.
  • Reduced expenses. The cost is 1/3 that of regular licensing.
  • Increased financial flexibility. Your customers can keep their cash and credit lines available for other uses.

In addition to these benefits, customers also get free software upgrades during their contract period, making this an affordable way to always have the latest version.

At the end of the Annual contract, your customers have 3 options:

  1. Renew annual volume license or annual site license contract.
  2. Buy standard volume licensing or site license agreement.
  3. De-install software.
