Continued Access To The Latest Software Updates

Our in-house development team has worked tirelessly to enhance the features, tools and performance of your Carveco software, through the release of 14 individual software updates over the past year.

Unlike other software providers, our ‘Continuous Delivery’ approach to development means that we deliver software enhancements quickly and safely.

This results in our customers having access to software enhancements as soon as they’re ready, rather than saving them up for a major version release.

Choosing to renew your Maintenance agreement ensures you don’t loose access to the latest software updates including any new tools, performance improvements, security patches and bug fixes we release.

Maintenance FAQ

Can i just purchase a version upgrade?2020-08-11T15:31:47+01:00

Unfortunately no. We’ve moved away from the older ‘Major Version’ cycle of releasing software, in favour of the more modern Continuous Delivery approach.

This approach allows us to deliver new features and product enhancements to our customers, as soon as they’re ready, rather than storing up the new features for an annual release in the distant future.

Can i pick up maintenance after a break?2020-04-12T16:21:31+01:00

You can choose to renew your Carveco maintenance agreement at any time. However, with significant gaps in Maintenance coverage, you may be obliged to cover the cost of Maintenance from when your plan originally lapsed.

Do I have to renew maintenance every 12-months?2020-08-11T15:31:24+01:00

No, continuing with maintenance is entirely optional.

We would always encourage renewing your software maintenance, as this allows you to stay up-to-date with the latest software improvements we release and access dedicated, priority support. But, we recognise that every Carveco customer is unique, with similarly differing needs and circumstances.

How Can I View My Maintenance Date?2020-07-27T23:24:13+01:00

Within your software, access the ‘Help’ menu and click on ‘About Carveco’. This should display your Maintenance Renewal Date and number of days remaining on your Maintenance plan (see highlighted).

How to view your maintenance date within Carveco
How much does it cost to renew my maintenance plan?2020-08-11T15:32:45+01:00

Every Carveco perpetual purchase comes with 12-months maintenance included as standard. Following this, you can choose to renew your maintenance plan yearly for £1,200 (GBP), €1,400 (EUR) or $1,600 (USD).

Every Carveco Maker Plus perpetual purchase comes with 12-months maintenance included as standard. Following this, you can choose to renew your maintenance plan yearly for  $250 (USD).

I’m on subscription, does this include maintenance?2020-08-11T15:33:56+01:00

Yes, subscriptions to Carveco and Carveco Maker Plus factor the cost of maintenance into the subscription price. This means that if you have an active subscription, you will always be entitled to the latest software updates and support for your software.

What happens to my software if I choose not to renew?2020-08-11T15:32:20+01:00

Nothing. Carveco will continue to work absolutely fine after your initial maintenance period has come to an end. You’ll still have access to all software updates released during your active maintenance period (your first 12-months for example), but any subsequent software updates we release after this time, will not be available to you.
