New Quark Volume Licensing Program Reduces Costs and Increases Efficiency of Purchasing and Deploying Multiple QuarkXPress Licenses
Quark’s New Initiative Offers Discounts on QuarkXPress Licenses, Complimentary License Management Software and Support from Two New Service Programs
Denver, CO — July 18, 2007 — Quark Inc. today announced Quark Volume Licensing Program (QVLP), a new licensing program that provides volume discounts and purchase and installation management for users who purchase or upgrade five or more QuarkXPress licenses. Designed for any organization requiring multiple QuarkXPress licenses, QVLP reduces overall costs, simplifies the purchase of volume licenses, and protects investments in Quark software through two new maintenance programs specifically designed for QVLP participants.
QVLP simplifies the purchase of multiple QuarkXPress licenses by basing cost savings on a tiered scale that associates the number of licenses purchased with corresponding discounted pricing. In addition to cost savings, organizations purchasing more than five QuarkXPress licenses benefit from:
Streamlined Purchasing: All QVLP purchases are tied to a single serial number and validation code
No Contracts: QVLP does not require ongoing commitment, ensuring that organizations can purchase QuarkXPress software when needed
Transactional Discounts: Purchases made through QVLP are not restricted to specific start and end dates
Free Quark License Administrator: QVLP includes complimentary license management software that manages licenses and tracks deployment to optimize an organization’s use of QuarkXPress
Sheldon Haselwood, IT manager for Final Film, a prepress and print service provider based in Los Angeles said, "We purchased our QuarkXPress licenses through the Quark Volume Licensing Program and it simplified the process for purchasing, installing and deploying QuarkXPress considerably. At Final Film we run QuarkXPress on a number of computers and must add the software to new machines fairly regularly. One advantage of QVLP is Quark License Administrator which allows me to install the software once and run on multiple computers without worrying about server conflicts or tracking a whole list of serial numbers."
In addition to QVLP, Quark introduced two new maintenance plans associated with the volume licensing program:
QuarkAssurance Maintenance Plan: QuarkXPress software maintenance program that includes premium technical support and free upgrades to the most recent version of QuarkXPress during the enrollment term
ServicePlus Maintenance Plan: QuarkXPress software maintenance program that includes new feature training, premium technical support and free upgrades to the most recent version of QuarkXPress during the enrollment term
“The new Quark Volume Licensing Program makes it extremely easy for corporate, government and small-to-midsized customers to deploy world class productivity software with maximum effectiveness,” said Cherie Walker, director of channel and educational sales for Quark. “We are excited to offer our customers a program that simplifies the purchase, deployment and management of QuarkXPress software licenses while offering the benefit of a volume discount.”
QuarkXPress licenses purchased under QVLP are run concurrently using Quark License Administrator (QLA). QLA is a server-based license management system developed by Quark to manage the purchase, installation and maintenance of five or more QuarkXPress licenses.
