Why choose the premium option?
Top Reason: With Premium Maintenance, you get a much greater value in free engineering consulting and discounted/free training than the amount you spend to upgrade! Using the example below, you spend $500 to upgrade and get $800 in included 1:1 engineering consulting and $1,100–$2,350 in training benefits.
If you anticipate the need for assistance from an experienced power systems engineer on your project and/or you plan to take in-person or online training, Premium Maintenance can be a great value.
Here’s an example to illustrate the benefits. Let’s say your license configuration is: ANSI Short Circuit, PowerProtector, ArcFlash, and SmartPDC, with a 300 bus limitation. You attend one 5-day training class and another person in the office takes the online training. You also need an experienced power systems engineer to review your one-line and discuss your arc flash results and the implementation of your safety program, which takes 4.0 hours of back and forth discussion and reviews. See the table below for a summary of the costs:
|1:1 Engineering Consulting Support||$800||$0.00|
Clearly the Premium Option can save you money, and there is no need to get a PO approved for the additional 1:1 support later when you need it.
- The standard level of maintenance is provided for the first year after purchase at no cost. You can upgrade to the premium option by paying the difference of 5%.
- You can upgrade or downgrade your support level when your maintenance contract is renewed.
- Consulting support hours must be used within the year of the maintenance contract in which they are purchased.
- Engineering time needs to be scheduled.
- Only EasyPower licenses are eligible for the premium maintenance plan.
