Program Datails

The initial OLP order will determine your discount level for the next two years. In the initial order, you select the products and quantities you want to purchase. Bonus points are awarded for multi-product purchases. You accumulate points based on the products and quantities purchased, and these points qualify you for one of four price levels - A, B, C, or D.

A discount schedule is associated with each purchase level, so the more points accumulated -- the greater the savings. The minimum purchase requirement is 40 points for initial orders, and 1 point for reorders.

Program Purchase Level

Point Range 40 - 249 250 - 499 500 - 1,499 1500+

Product Reorders

You also may reorder products at the your OLP tevel for two years from the date of the first license agreement. You just need to reference the License Certificate number, assigned with the first order, which indicates your buy-in level and the expiration date of the original OLP agreement. Customers can place reorders against this License Certificate number with a minimum of one point.

Points are not cumulative on reorders. If you wish to proceed to the next price level, simply place a separate initial order for quantities that would satisfy the desired level's minimum. Otherwise, you will remain at the initial buy-in level established with the first OLP order agreement.

Everything You Need in One Solutions Kit

With the initial OLP software sale, customers also purchase the OLP Solutions Kit for a nominal fee. The kit contains everything needed to install and activate licensed software product as well as evaluate other Workgroup and Advanced Edition products. This includes the most current version of all the OLP products available at the time of purchase, as well as a custom-generated License Certificate with your customized license numbers.

The License Certificate provides the right to copy products purchased through the OLP in the exact quantity ordered. The License Certificate includes a unique License Certificate “number” that is required for all reorders. It also documents the specific software product licenses purchased and the information necessary to unlock these products.

Try IT - Thon Buy IT !

The OLP Solutions Kit contains a set of trial product CDs for select Workgroup and Advanced Edition software products. Installed trial products can be unlocked to become full versions with the appropriate license key codes.

Upgrade Protection

Upgrade Protection is one of the easiest and most cost-effective add-on components for every OLP order. By allocating funds up front, licenses remain current, without the expense of additional license costs for new releases that become available. In essence, future product revisions are pre-paid, ensuring that products remain current for two years.

Customers may enroll in Upgrade Protection when they order. The Upgrade Protection period is coterminous and will expire on the second anniversary of the license agreement. Upgrade Protection is optional, and is specific to the licensed product(s). Should you select this option, it must be purchased for the same quantity as the product purchased.

When new product revisions are announced, the customer can obtain product updates at no charge. The kit contains trials of the latest versions of Workgroup and Advanced edition products. The customer’s OLP license is considered current once the new OLP Solutions Kit is obtained.

OLP Product Support

Free technical support is included for a period of 90 days with each initial order and for all reorders. During this 90-day period, customers may opt to escalate their calls from the standard to the priority support queue for an additional fee. Optional 24 x 7 support services are also available for an additional fee.

Return Policy. If for any reason a customer is not satisfied with their license purchase, they may return the order (including the Solutions Kit) unconditionally within 30 days of OLP program entry date.

OLP Order Process. The order process for the CA OLP is similar to that for the standard licensing of CA’s Workgroup and Advanced Edition products. Customers simply place orders with their reseller and a license agreement is procured by the reseller on your behalf. The program deliverables - Solutions Kit and License Certificate - are shipped directly to the customer or reseller partner in the same package.
