The perpetual license program gives you the opportunity each year to take advantage of continuing an active maintenance plan. While not required to use Crate Pro, it is strongly suggested, not only for the benefits of receiving updates but for some features to function.

Regular operating system updates and hardware changes can quickly cause programs to become obsolete,  nonfunctional and susceptible to corruption if they also are not updated.  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 and avoid requiring you to maintain legacy hardware and software systems.

Some Crate Pro features require active maintenance to function.


The maintenance plan includes updates and new versions of both Crate Pro and FileMaker. While the maintenance plan does not cover live support, it does offer discounts for many support features. Maintenance plans must remain continuous to be valid for renewal rates.


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
