Wondering whether to switch to INSYDIUM Fused Complete?

We talk you through the differences between our Complete perpetual license and our original Maintenance model.

If your perpetual license starts with XPL or IFL, you might be wondering whether to switch to INSYDIUM Fused Complete via the Complete Upgrade. Read on to decide if moving from Maintenance to full perpetual suits you.


Fused Complete Upgrade vs. Fused Maintenance: what's the difference?

INSYDIUM Fused Complete Upgrade

The Complete Upgrade will switch your license to a Complete license, which gives you permanent access* to the full INSYDIUM Fused Collection, including related Service Updates. You will not receive Release Updates–when a Release Update is available, you will need to purchase another Complete Upgrade to gain access to the latest version.

INSYDIUM Fused Maintenance

The Maintenance option gives you 12 months access to the full INSYDIUM Fused Collection, including all Updates. If you do not renew your Maintenance after your 12-month expiry, you will retain access to X-Particles only.

Why might I choose to stick with Maintenance?

If your license currently has Maintenance, the best option for you will depend on whether or not you intend to keep your Maintenance up to date and if you require access to Updates as soon as they are released.

If you'd like to keep your license up to date, we recommend purchasing Maintenance for your license as it would be more cost-effective.
