There are two ways for Members of the DLMS UA to use the test tool.
Own the Test Tool outright
The first is to buy the licence outright – Companies that are testing multiple products on a regular basis should purchase the Test Tool. They can purchase the version of the Test Tool they need via a one-off fee, by purchasing the perpetual licence but they will need to then purchase subsequent updates and upgrades of the Test Tool as it is upgraded.
Alternatively, they can purchase it via a ‘Software-as-as-Service’ agreement, which is the solution that DLMS UA recommends to its members, and an ‘All Inclusive’ version. This means that an annual ‘subscription’ fee is paid, but the Licencee gets ongoing access to all upgrades and updates , and the Member automatically has access to the latest version of the Test Tool as soon as it is available. Also included as part of this licence model is free email support.
Licence the Test Tool via another Member in Good Standing
The second way to get access is to licence the use of the Test Tool from a Company that has already purchased the Tool, via a one off 30 day licence fee. For this use, a ‘licensing’ fee of €3’000 is payable to EuroDCS, on top of the costs for the Certification process that are payable at the point at which the Applicant submits the test file using the sublicensing right given to the Test Tool licensee.
Both the Compliance and Development tools can be used to complete the Certification process, and are available in either of the two licensing methods via our Partner EuroDCS who are responsible for the distribution of both the CTT and the DTT. Each licence can be registered on three devices, and you will need to download the software available via www.wibu.com.
Cost saving for a conversion to the All Inclusive Annual Licence:
CTT Conversion cost + CTT All Inclusive Annual Licence = 21’000€ + 6’000€ =27’000€
DTT Conversion cost + DTT All Inclusive Annual Licence = 42’000€ + 12’000€ =54’000€
Promotion 01/10/2021 - 31/12/2021 savings:
CTT Cost saving: 30’000€ - 27’000€ = 3’000€
DTT Cost saving: 60’000€ - 54’000€ = 6’000€
