Most of our customers use our software for donkey's years. We even
have clients still working productively on QuarkXPress 4! Naturally,
QuarkXPress 7 is a whole different kettle of fish and our upgrade
paths are here to help you make that jump.
So, when it's time for you to upgrade, what are the options and
costs? There are a couple of 'ifs and buts' but we try to keep them
to a minimum:
- • We will only upgrade USB dongles. ADB and parallel licences
are now defunct.
- • All licences must be less than five years old to be upgraded,
including USB licences/dongles.
- • Sometimes it is impossible to upgrade a licence remotely
and the dongle must be returned - please factor in this extra
- • Upgrades do not include ODBC drivers (neither
do new licences). If you use a LinkUP ODBC version, then you will
need to install an
driver before upgrading.
Most ODBC driver suppliers have trial versions.
- • If you purchased LinkUP post 23 May 2006 (QuarkXPress 7 launch
date) then you are entitled to a free upgrade to QuarkXPress 7
compatibility - email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Contact us if you have any
queries about upgrades - please have your LinkUP Serial number handy
if possible, it starts LU4. Or for a personal quote and payment details.
We're looking forward to hearing from you.
PriceIt and LinkUP Pricing
If you were a user of our lovely old PriceIt software, there isn't
an upgrade route as PriceIt was dongle-proected and the software
has changed rather drastically since it was introduced in the 90s.
LinkUP Pricing is now provided electronically, and works from within
QuarkXPress. Find out how LinkUP
Pricing can help you.
Upgrade from LinkUP Pricing < 1 year old = LinkUP Workgroup cost
- LinkUP Pricing cost
Yes, that's right, we take off the whole cost of LinkUP
Pricing from Workgroup.
Upgrade from LinkUP Workgroup < 5 years old to current version:
£199, €295 or $375
Upgrade from LinkUP Workgroup < 1 year old: LinkUP Enterprise cost
- LinkUP Workgroup cost.
Upgrade from LinkUP Enterprise < 5 years old to current version:
£599, €885 or $1135.
If you want to change platform, Mac to PC or PC to Mac, our dongles
are platform specific. We do not charge for a different platform
version of the software, but the licence (dongle) will need to be
exchanged at £40 per licence plus courier charges.
Note that you may also require new ODBC drivers which are not supplied
with upgrades or full licences.
If there is a specific or complicated up/down/sideways/roundabout
upgrade, additional licences, platform changes or special situation
to discuss, please contact us
to see how we can help.
If you find something that LinkUP doesn't
do (rare), remember we can customise it to your specification.
Custom versions can cost more but are designed to ensure you get
return on investment because they are tailored to your workflow.
