The current price for a single perpetual license for Prism is $450; assuming a three-year life-span before upgrading, this equals $150/year. Purchasing 2-4 licenses lowers the price to $375/each ($125/year). This pricing does not include upgrades and is per computer.
GraphPad is migrating to a new pricing model based on an annual subscription, rather than a perpetual license. An annual subscription lasts one year but includes any upgrades that occur during the term. The price for a single annual license is $150/year, or $125/year with the purchase of 10 licenses.
UAB bulk-purchase pricing will depend on how many licenses are purchased, but is estimated to be between $75 and $105 annually per license if we can meet some higher levels of purchases/subscriptions each year.
Importantly, each license can be activated twice during your one-year term. If you choose to activate on two computers immediately, this is allowed. However, once you have used both of your activations, you will not be able to install Prism again on any computer for any reason (e.g. if a computer crashes). Using both activations up front reduces the effective cost as well.
UAB IT is asking interested individuals on campus for feedback/interest in participating in a bulk-purchase for GraphPad/Prism software. For more details and to provide your feedback please respond to this survey/feedback form https://uab.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_8pJ5bs6A4maKz8V
With the change to SAS and SPSS Campus Wide licenses you will no longer receive email renewal notices.
