Companies on the perpetual license program have an opportunity each year to take advantage of an active maintenance plan. While not required to use Crate Pro, it is strongly suggested. Companies on the lease plan are considered to have active maintenance for the full term of the lease. Annual lease customers should be aware the program will stop functioning if the lease is allowed to lapse.


Operating system updates and hardware changes can make legacy programs obsolete,  nonfunctional and susceptible to corruption.  Updates to your utility software such as virus scanning software, can corrupt older applications and/or your business data. Keeping your software updated helps alleviate these concerns.


Your Crate Pro licenses include FileMaker licenses. The maintenance plan is only for updates and new versions of both Crate Pro and FileMaker and does not cover live support, ticket support or custom work. However, an active maintenance plan does offer many additional benefits and discounts as shown below. Your maintenance plan may not lapse to be eligible for renewal. 


Major Active Maintenance Benefits:


  • Free Crate Pro 6 updates with new feature and fixes: Some features will only function on most current FileMaker version
  • Free new versions of Crate Pro software
  • Free updates to FileMaker software
  • Free new versions to FileMaker software
  • Free Support Portal ticket support
  • Ability for customization: reports, styles, exports, etc
  • Discounts for live session support after initial support period as shown on your invoice
  • Special pricing for additional computer and concurrent connection licenses.
  • Access to SketchUp 3D CAD images: active maintenance is required to download CAD images
  • Special links at various times during year to take advantage of free live sessions for more training or tweaking software
  • Free live upgrade support: Requires that you are upgrading from an active version to an active version no more than 1 version behind
