Validation packages are valid at the site level. They are purchased once regardless
as to the number of copies of the software you own at the same physical site. Each validation package comes with
unlimited updates to the revisions within the current version of the software product
you have purchased. Therefore, if you have purchased validation for QC-CALC RT 3.4.10 and
Prolink re-validates at revision 3.4.20, you automatically qualify for the latest revision
of the validation package without extra cost.
Upgrades to the validation package follow upgrades to the software which is being validated (specifically major or minor version number changes – i.e. 3.3 to 3.4 or 3.3 to 4.0).
When you upgrade your software, the validation for that new version must be upgraded also. If your software and validation is covered under a software maintenance plan
they will be upgraded at no charge.
Additional Software Validation Services
Also available but not included
in the validation price are implementation and training packages. These are typically 2-3
days in length and are charged at the regular daily rate.
Please see our onsite training
option on the training page for pricing. The daily
rate is the same whether we are doing training or validation.
