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.

Some Crate Pro features require active maintenance to function.


The maintenance plan includes updates and new versions of Crate Pro. 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. Live session support and call support must be scheduled using the links provided for the Scheduler. Customers with active maintenance will be given a code for free or discounted live support during their active maintenance term.


Major Active Maintenance Benefits:


  • Free Crate Pro 6 updates with new feature and fixes: 
  • Free new versions of Crate Pro 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
  • Ability to purchase additional computer(CAL) , concurrent connection licenses (DAL) and/or upgrade to client-server configuration if on peer-to-peer.
  • 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 2 releases behind. End of life not eligible for upgrade support. Deprecated releases eligible for a fee.
