PROKON offers two easy ways to access the software

Subscription/Rental Licensing

Annual subscriptions are the most commonly used way to access PROKON software. Multi-year subscriptions are available upon request.

Perpetual Licensing

Perpetual licensing is available on individual modules. To benefit from any updates, ensure that your perpetual licenses are maintained. If your maintenance lapses, you will still have access to your

software; however, no other benefits will apply. Four years after purchase of a perpetual license or the last maintenance, all support or help from PROKON will lapse.
