Purchasing multiple licenses

 

For schools, colleges, universities and other organizations who are purchasing multiple licenses, you are eligible for a cumulative pricing discount. The total discount increases with each license tier, so the more user licenses you purchase the lower you can expect to pay per license.

Table below outlines per license price for each tier. For example, if you are planning to buy 35 licenses for your school, you will pay $644 for each license code.

Single user license
$995
2-9 user licenses
$905
10-29 user licenses
$774
30-49 user licenses
$644
50+ user licenses
$514

 

Contact our customer service to purchase multiple user licenses by emailing info@bridges-canada.com or calling 1-800-353-1107.

 

Get the latest version of K3000 on a USB   

 

If you would like to purchase or upgrade to the latest version of K3000, but don't have access to a reliable internet connection, you have the option of a USB media download. You can purchase the USB by changing the product to 'single user license w/ USB'.

To upgrade your existing K3000 with a USB, contact customer service.

Note: You only need to purchase one USB stick. You can use it to download the software onto multiple computers, however you will still need to purchase multiple user licenses in order to activate each one. 

 

Upgrading to version 16

 

If you bought a standalone version within the last 90 days (March 8th, 2018 or later), you can upgrade to version 16 for free.

 

If more than 90 days have passed since you bought your K3000, or you have a previous version you can get V.16 for half of whatever cumulative pricing discount you are eligible for. Just have your license code/serial number on hand when you order. Contact our customer service by emailing info@bridges-canada.com or calling 1-800-353-1107.
You can download the new version by following the link: for Mac and PC.

If you would like to upgrade to v16 but don't have access to a reliable internet connection, you can purchase it on a USB by contacting our customer service. Note that you will still need to order the new license codes to activate V.16.
