As our backup and synchronization program, SyncBack, continues to evolve, we at 2BrightSparks have introduced a new payment model to provide our customers more value for less. In this article, we will look at what the new subscription model Upgrade Assurance is, and its benefits.
Upgrade Assurance is an annual subscription service in which subscribed customers get future upgrades to major version releases at no additional charge as well as priority support via our support ticketing channel.
Upgrade Assurance customers will continue to enjoy these benefits as long as they stay subscribed.
This subscription option is available to customers as an add-on item when they purchase new or upgrade versions of SyncBackSE/Pro at our webstore.
Subscribers of Upgrade Assurance get:
When subscribed to Upgrade Assurance, you will have peace of mind that future major and minor version upgrades and updates are free-of-charge. Subscribers only need to pay an annual fee that is a fraction of the cost for a SyncBack upgrade. In addition, subscribers will get priority support when they contact 2BrightSparks ticketing support channel.
With SyncBack upgrades, existing SyncBackSE/Pro customers who do not wish to subscribe to Upgrade Assurance have the option to pay for an upgrade to the latest SyncBack version if they want to continue getting minor updates and support.
As a subscription service, the charges are automatically renewed annually on the anniversary date of the Upgrade Assurance purchase. A notification email will be sent 2 weeks before the scheduled payment deduction.
Upgrade Assurance can be cancelled anytime via the customer account management portal.
Upgrade Assurance will be available for purchase if you have purchased SyncBackSE or SyncBackPro within the past 30 days. This is to allow customers who did not buy the Upgrade Assurance during the SyncBack purchase to do so within 30 days of their purchase.
After that period, customers will have the option to buy Upgrade Assurance during the next major version release when they upgrade their SyncBackSE/Pro license.
To see if you are eligible to purchase Upgrade Assurance as a stand-alone product, visit our Upgrade Checker page and enter your SyncBackSE/Pro serial number.
