New PDXpert PLM System Breaks 10 Cents per Hour Barrier

Quick Payback with New Read-Only Client and Better Volume Discounts

CASTLE ROCK, Colorado, June 21, 2010 -- Active Sensing, Inc. (ASI) today announced new system pricing for its award-winning PDXpert® PLM 2010 Edition product lifecycle management software. By introducing a low-cost read-only client and more aggressive volume discounts, a typical perpetual license with 4 years of support and upgrades averages just 9 cents per user-hour. The annual subscription for a similar configuration of 10 full-function users and 20 read-only users is just 13 cents per user-hour.

To highlight the financial benefits of PDXpert PLM software, a return on investment (ROI) calculator has been added to the PDXpert website at Using proven industry metrics and conservative analysis, the ROI calculator demonstrates how PDXpert PLM software projects become cash-flow positive very quickly, often returning productivity savings of 10 to 20 times the license price.

The new read-only PDXpert client offers an easy and inexpensive way to expand access to engineering documents, quality specifications and production procedures. A read-only perpetual license costs only $196 (quantity 1), and volume discounts reduce this to just $96 per user. For the lowest possible entry cost, a read-only subscription is available for $7 to $12 per month, depending on volume.

As part of its drive to make PLM software affordable, ASI has also enhanced its discount structure for full-function licenses. Systems with as few as 5 users will see a $50 per user reduction, while the price for 10 to 19 users has been reduced by $100 per user.

PDXpert PLM 2010 Edition release 6.2 is available now at the website. Website visitors can immediately download a free, fully-functional trial version that models both full-function and read-only capabilities.
