Multiuser (Group) License Prices

Braille2000 is available for group (multi-user or quantity) licensing at a significant discount. Each license unit comes with your choice of activation method (Key device of your choice or Internet service). Group license rates apply only to Budget and Premium licenses ordered in one new transaction. (We no longer give retroactive discounts based on accumulated holdings of license units, however see the new Incentive Program described below.)

To determine the unit price for Braille2000 when ordering five or more units at the same time (of any mix of editions), find the Quantity in the table below and then multiply the Single User price (including the cost of any options) by the Multiplier in the table, and then round to the nearest whole dollar. When figuring quantity for the rate table, do not count options units, i.e., count only those items whose part number takes a suffix. The group price multiplier is based on the quantity being ordered at the same time.

Part Numbers: for group license part numbers and corresponding prices, include the Rate category number in the part numbers of all items. For example, when ordering four units of The Document Processing Edition with the Math Feature and two units of The Basic Edition (six units in all), order four of B2KPE5P-U1, four of B2KPM5P, and two of B2KSE5P-U1 (these part numbers are for the plain USB Key device, use the suffice of your choice).

The Braille2000 Incentive Program (IP)

Braille2000 work groups holding 5, 10, 20, 50, or 80 or more current licenses are entitled to order any quantity of additional Braille2000 licenses at the group discount rates for 5, 10, 20, 50, or 80, when ordering Braille2000 software directly from CASC (rather than through a reseller). This is so you can order a few additional licenses at a discounted rate. You can also order using regular group licensing rates. Contact CASC for the part numbers to use with the Incentive Program (The Incentive Program replaces the now-discontinued retroactive discount policy.)
