Select

Our SELECT Service offers a fundamental level of support. Kyocera will collaborate with you, the customer, to optimise license usage and address licensing questions. 

Kyocera SELECT goes beyond the vendor’s standard provision, delivering incident support tailored to your specific configurations and implementations.

In the event that the effort regularly exceeds the estimated monthly volume, Kyocera will investigate root causes and work with the customer on potential solutions or service improvement strategies. 

Kyocera will ensure that as patches and upgrades are made available from respective solution providers, these are communicated and are made accessible to the customer organisation.  

Support is made available via Email or via the Kyocera Support web portal.

*Licence support

Perpetual Licensing:

Ownership: With perpetual licensing, you buy a license to use software indefinitely.

Subscription Licensing:
Usage Period: Pay a recurring fee (monthly or annually) to use the software.

In summary, with perpetual licenses you own the software, while with subscription licenses you are renting it.

Perpetual & Subscription Software assurance

Software assurance serves as a safeguard to uphold the software’s integrity, ensuring it remains secure and free from vulnerabilities throughout its lifecycle.

When considering Perpetual Licensing software assurance is provided with additional cost, which may themselves be applied on a subscription basis.

For Subscription Licenses, software assurance aligns with the license term or, in the case of Software as a Service, is inherently part of the license subscription.
