For some years we have offered online purchasers the option of buying a single Saxon Enterprise Edition license (product code EE001) at £360, with additional licenses (code EE002) offered at a reduced price of £180. In addition we have offered reduced-cost licenses EET01 (which excludes XQuery-related functionality), EEQ01 (which excludes XSLT-related functionality), and EEV01 (which excludes both).
Navigating your way around the online shop to select these options has never been easy. The software that we now use to create the online shop offers better ways of configuring our product offerings which we haven't been fully exploiting. From 1st December 2020 we will therefore be switching to a new product structure for individual Enterprise Edition licenses:
There will be a single product code that you order.
The headline price for a single license remains at £360 (you can also choose to pay in Euros or US Dollars).
If you choose to buy multiple licenses, the price per license drops to £300 when you buy 2 to 4 licenses, £270 if you buy 5, or £240 if you buy 6 or more.
You can get a 20% saving by excluding XSLT-related functionality, and/or 20% by excluding XQuery-related functionality The standard purchase gives you upgrade and support rights for one year from the date of purchase. You can increase this to two years (premium +50%) or 5 years (premium +150%).
These changes keep the base price for a single license unchanged. The discount for multiple licenses is reduced (for example, buying 5 licenses now costs £1350, compared with £1080 previously), and the discount for choosing reduced functionality is also reduced. But the cost over 2 or 5 years comes down if you choose to extend your upgrade and support rights up front.
The same prices will apply if you order offline via a corporate purchase order.
The price of other licenses (including Professional Edition, site licenses, and redistribution licenses) is unaffected for the time being. We will review these in due course.
We will no longer be accepting purchase orders for individual Professional Edition licenses; these will be available only through the online shop. Site licenses and redistribution licenses for Professional Edition remain available, and can be bought using a corporate purchase order.
