Reasons To Buy

What am I paying for when buying Active Query Builder?

  • Subscription: 12 Month Product Guarantee

    Active Query Builder is sold based on a subscription model. This means that when you purchase one of the Active Query Builder Subscriptions, you receive 12 months of free updates for the specified products from the date of purchase - be it a minor service update or a major new version. After the 12-month period and at your discretion, you can prolong it according to the terms below. If you choose not to prolong, you can continue using the last version you obtained or are eligible to use. The 12-month time frame is merely for new versions/updates and has no relevance to rights of use (as long as the EULA is not violated).

  • Subscription Prolongation Terms

    • The cost of 1-year subscription prolongation is 35% of the current retail license price.
    • By prolonging your subscription for 2 or 3 years you get the 10% or 25% discount on the prolongation price.
    • The subscription can be prolonged for 1, 2 or 3 years starting from the current expiration date, no matter if subscription has already expired or not.

    If the subscription is prolonged in time, that is, no later than one month after the expiration date, the additional 15% discount applies to the prolongation price making it less than 30% of the current retail license price.

    If the subscription has expired more than 3 years ago, it can not be prolonged, but renewed for the 80% of the current retail license price.
    The renewed subscription is issued for one year starting from the renewal date.

  • Priority Technical Support

    During the subscription period, all your support inquiries will be given top priority. You can be sure to receive answers from our support staff within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays), to have your bug reports processed foremost, and your wishes and suggestions to be placed higher in our to-do list.

We have been using Active Query Builder for over a year and must say that both the product and support have been outstanding!

We chose Active Query Builder due to its flexibility and features, but have been truly pleased by its power and hidden capabilities. ...

In summary Active Query Builder provides excellent components, great support and a very flexible feature set. It has allowed us to provide features to our end users that I did not think would be possible in the first release of our new tools and in a timeframe that was much shorter than planned. I would recommend that anyone dealing with databases in the .Net world should be aware of this component and its capabilities!
