The AVA Development Plan provides customers with the following benefits:
Whether you lease or purchase the software, all of the benefits of the AVA Development Plan are typically supplied free of charge to all customers for the first 12 months of ownership of AVA software. Thereafter the decision as to whether to renew cover, as part of a lease renewal or as separate cover for purchased software, is yours alone. Many new customers start out intending not to renew DP cover on expiry of the free cover period but are convinced by the quality of both software development and support received during the first year to continue cover thereafter. Perhaps the most obvious reason for maintaining cover is a straight financial one – at an annual cost of 15% of the list price of the software covered, the DP is less than half as expensive than the alternative of depreciating and writing off software before replacing it after a maximum of, say, three years of useful life (as you would the machine which it runs on).
