Why does PerfectIt require a subscription?

When we introduced a cloud-based version of PerfectIt, we had to switch to subscription pricing because all updates and upgrades are automatically built in. Even though it is less popular than permanent licenses, it also offers significant advantages for all customers. That's because:

  • Support as well as all updates and upgrades are included.
  • The upfront cost is lower. For people new to editing or for people who only use PerfectIt occasionally, the cost is significantly less.
  • Improvements to the software are faster and more frequent. We no longer hold back improvements for the next major upgrade but have every incentive to include new features all the time.
  • Compatibility with all future versions of Word is guaranteed.

Our hope is to introduce subscriptions in a sensitive way that includes increased discounts for past customers and members of professional editing societies in order to ensure that, as far as possible, our biggest supporters are protected from the change.
