Floating licenses

Network floating licenses allow any number of people, whether in a single office or worldwide, to share a copy of GWB 2021. Please visit our floating license page for pricing and further information.

Perpetual licenses

The software industry has moved away from so-called perpetual licensing, since software becomes obsolete so quickly. We are nonetheless pleased to still offer our customers the option of licensing GWB12 on a non-subscription basis.

Note that GWB12 is the terminal release in the series of biannual upgrades and hence does not provide an upgrade path. Please visit our perpetual pricing page for more information.

Before selecting a perpetual license to GWB12, we encourage you to consider whether a multi-year pre-paid subscription to the current release might better meet your needs.

To upgrade an old perpetual license to a convenient subscription, please visit our upgrade pricing page.
