TDS Classic is licensed per developer and can therefore be installed on your Build Server, multiple machines, and environments at no extra charge. Each team member using TDS Classic must have their own license to utilize the software. Each initial purchase of TDS Classic includes a free year of maintenance and support; after the first year there is an annual renewal fee of 40% of MSRP.
A TDS Classic license must be renewed or extended on or before its expiration date to keep the benefits of the Maintenance and Support agreement active (and to take advantage of the renewal rate – once a license expires it will be necessary to purchase a new license to reactivate the benefits). An expired license means risking compatibility with other required programs such as Sitecore and Visual Studio, and security risks may apply depending on your configuration.
New TDS Classic features and enhancements are released at least twice a year to ensure maximum compatibility with Sitecore, Visual Studio, Source Control, and build server products as they improve. They also include bug fixes and security patches.
Our world class Support Team is not only here to assist with any TDS Classic issue or question, but is also available for project guidance and product tips to ensure peak efficiency.
Once a month we send out an email newsletter containing the latest thought-leadership on TDS Classic, as well as tips, tricks, updates, and announcements for all the products in our Essential Collection. This email is an exclusive benefit for active license holders, and is often the first place that useful content is available to the public.
Early access to new products and beta releases
We want our clients to be the first to try new software offerings; renewing your license keeps you on the list for early access and beta testing licenses.
We do offer discounts for bulk purchases, including enterprise license options for 40 seats or more. Non-profit organizations and Sitecore MVPs are eligible for discounts as well. To request discounted pricing, please contact us directly.
