Types of Licenses

Contact your BASIS sales channel for pricing and availability.


The BASIS product license supports the entire BASIS technology suite - BBj®, PRO/5®, and Visual PRO/5®.

A duplicate license for backup servers whose type and user count match the production license.

New License Purchase Options

Perpetual Licenses

Perpetual licenses are purchased for a single host ID and are registered via the “Register and install a license automatically” option from the License Registration and Delivery Methods installation screen. Pricing for perpetual licenses includes the first year’s Software Asset Management (SAM) Plan.

SaaS (Annual Subscription)

The annual subscription license supports the growing trend of software rental while significantly reducing acquisition costs. This Extended Edition license is renewed annually and includes the SAM Plan which facilitates the fulfillment of upgrades at any time to take advantage of new features and function; operating system, hardware, and security updates.

Revenue Sharing

There may be use cases for a revenue sharing model. One example is for web applications where there might be an unknown volume of users or a widely fluctuating volume of users that are charged for the application usage on a transaction level. You may have another interesting use case for which the normal license pricing is an obstacle but which will deliver good revenues. We are always open to win-win business discussions.
