Why do we provide this service?
The PSG-E-3: Rental-to-License Transition service provides the best MBC performance test tool solution when the duration of a performance test project is hard to predict.
A test tool solution with monthly rental fees that initially looks very cost-effective may become much more costly than expected if the project time was grossly under-estimated.
The Rental-to-License Transition service has therefore emerged as a separate MBC test tool service to help our customers maintain a cost-effective test tool solution if the project time change.
Here we discuss the following frequently asked questions:

What is included?
A standard Our Rental-to-License Transition service covers:
Any MBC test tool configuration.
Reinstallation of test tools, if required.
Initial Test Tool Training for five participants per test system.
Gold support during twelve months.
For short-term performance test activities our Test Tool Rental service is the most cost-effective solution.
Depending on the test tool rental period, the rental alternative may become a less cost-effective solution at some point in time.
Any reimbursements of rental fees paid?
Yes, it does. A Test Tool Rental agreement has two price components:
The Test Tool Rental fees.
The Gold support fees.
The Rental-to-License Transition services will, depending on the rental period length, deduct 75-90% of the total Test Tool Rental fees (1) paid from Test Tool License fee.
This will make the transition to a license agreement easy and very attractive.
The Gold support fees (2) paid are, however, regarded as a consumed service.
