Purchasing Options

Solutions that Fit


Ship designers and ship builders are unique and need solutions that fit their specific requirements.

SSI understands that shipbuilding and offshore design and construction have constant fluctuations in demand, not only within projects, but between projects and from year to year. SSI’s purchasing options provide the flexibility to help you manage change. This flexibility ensures that clients can make adjustments as and when needed to always maintain the most cost effective solution.

SSI can accommodate various sizes of companies, budgets, and project size. If demand is volatile or you plan to grow or diversify, the SSI solution has the flexibility to meet your needs.

Suites vs. Modular Licensing

Suites are groups of ShipConstructor products packaged together into a single license. These “packages” are far more cost effective than purchasing the same products individually for a single user. Modular Licenses provide for purchase at the most granular level.  When requirements are more certain, this can be the most cost effective purchasing option.
Benefits:

•    Allows the flexibility to work on multiple
     related engineering tasks.
•    No limitation on project size
•    Greatest flexibility

 Standalone vs. Network


The individual ShipConstructor products may be purchased as a standalone license for a single user or as a network license that can be shared by multiple people. The Standard and Premium editions of the ShipConstructor Hull Structure Suites and ShipConstructor Outfitting Suites are available as standalone licenses for a single user only. The ShipConstructor Suite Ultimate Edition is available as a network license that can be shared by multiple people.

Payment Time Period Options


SSI realizes that managing cash flow and the scheduling of project and payment schedules are an intrinsic part of shipbuilding and offshore projects.  Therefore, SSI offers multiple different licensing options corresponding to different time periods that will satisfy any need.

Perpetual License
- Perpetual Licenses offer time-unlimited usage of the software. Subscription and WorkShare are options.

Lease License
- Lease licenses allow clients to adjust the number of licenses and levels to their actual needs on a month to month basis. This is an ideal option if clients expect growth over the long term. 60% of the lease payments can be applied to the eventual purchase of Perpetual Licenses. Subscription and WorkShare are included.

Rent License
- Rental licenses are the lowest cost short term licensing options.  They are ideal for organizations with onerous cash flow demands, those with short duration projects with no expectation of future work with ShipConstructor, and existing clients who have a peak in demand but no expectation for sustained growth. Subscription and WorkShare are included.

Upgrades and Swaps


Both the type and quantity of work clients undertake can vary substantially from project to project. SSI also realizes that the needs of any client will not be the same tomorrow as they are today. This is a reflection of both constant changes to the clients business and of the new products and capabilities added with each new release of ShipConstructor.

To address these needs, SSI has now introduced a cost effective way for clients to upgrade or crossgrade (swap) their existing products, versions, or editions of products.

SSI recognizes the investment that clients have already made in ShipConstructor software. Upgrades and swaps allow clients to leverage that investment while acquiring different products.

Contact your local dealer to determine the best options for upgrading and/or cross-grading products to ensure that the software you have is optimized for your current requirements.

Subscription


Subscription helps you  maintain and maximize the power of your software investment, providing access to the latest software releases, technical support, and advance previews of new features.
