2017 Prices for Adminsoft Professional Practice Software


Adminsoft Professional Practice software is suitable for Windows 10/8/7/Vista/XP environments.  Licences are issued on the basis of the number of workstations on which the software is installed/run (in Local Area Network or Terminal Services / Citrix environments).  With the Time & Cost module, the number of personnel being administered (i.e. entering timesheets) also affects the price.

Copies of the software (and data) may be installed on notebook computers and used away from the office.  In such cases, a notebook simply counts once as a workstation - even though it may be installed to run the software both stand-alone and accessing the data directly on the office network (and could do this simultaneously).  The Transfer Facility is required if you want to change details or enter new data remotely, and synchronize this with the main network data.

Corporate versions of the software, that handle multiple offices, divisions and/or work-groups, are also available.   For firms with branch offices, the software can be run as a bureau (using Terminal Services or Citrix at the head office say), or run independently at separate branch sites.  In the latter case, the biggest office would have a "Full Licence" and other branches would purchase only a "Half Licence" (i.e. 50% discount off the normal price for their number of staff and network usage).  Our Transfer Facility enables monitoring by head office and consolidated reporting, and supports situations where specialist expertise at one office provides assistance to other branches.  The half-licence principle is also applicable for a group of companies (e.g. a consulting engineer company and a surveying / town planning sister company).

Please note the following:
  • All prices are calculated for the specified country and currency.  Sterling & Euro are identical to (i.e. based on) USA pricing.  For "Other" countries not specified in the list, you can specify the exchange rate from US dollars to your own local currency.  (However, firms in "Other" countries should contact our sales team, as we have special pricing for some parts of the "third world".)
  • New Zealand customers:  please note that all prices do not include GST.  You will need to pay normal GST on all transactions with Adminsoft.
  • For Australia, USA, UK, Europe, and all other countries, you will be invoiced as an "export sale from New Zealand", which means that it is exempt of NZ GST, and your own local GST, VAT, or sales tax is also not applicable.
  • With Leased/Rented software you are always entitled to receive software updates.  So you do not need a separate Annual Update Contract.  However, you will need a separate "User Support Contract".
  • Annual Update Contracts entitle you to upgrade your "permanent licence" to new versions of the software as they are released.  The contracts cost 12.5% (approx.) of the respective Licence purchase price, per year, and cover the ensuing 12 month period.  They commence at installation, and are renewed on each anniversary subsequently.  If Annual Updates are allowed to lapse, they must be brought up-to-date (i.e. also pay any missed years) before you are entitled to download and use new versions.
  • User Support for installation, training, and consulting is available on a "time and materials basis (at $180 per hour).  Travel costs for site visits, and other costs such as toll charges associated with User Support, are also normally passed on to the user.  After initial installation, configuration, and training has been completed, support can be covered by Pre-paid User Support Contracts which effectively give a significant discount. 
  • Various sized User Support Contracts are available.  They effectively let you purchased support in advance.  We then deduct support from "your account" as it is provided.  The larger contracts give increasing concessions on support charges.
  • Customised software development is also available, if required (for things like special reports, links to other software, etc.).

Software Lease/Rental Arrangements

We offer lease/rental arrangements for our software, for those who prefer this instead of purchasing it.  Leasing has the obvious advantages of lower commitment / risk (especially in the first year or so while you get to know us), and a smoother cash-flow.  In some countries (such as NZ) where software purchases must be capitalized, there is the additional tax advantage that rental payments can be expensed in the year that they occur.)

Price Calculation Form

The following form allows you to specify desired software licences for purchase or lease/rent, with their associated update and support contracts, and see their respective prices and calculated total price.  It requires Java Script to be enabled on your web-browser.  You will probably find it best if viewed as a large window or "full screen", or in a smaller "text size" (see the "View" menu in your browser).
At any stage, you can print this page, to give a hard copy of the results you create using this form.  You can also save this web page to your local hard disk, and use it off-line.

All prices are shown in US dollars.  There is a facility at the bottom of the form to convert the total to another currency of your preference.
Important Note:  If you are running Internet Explorer and it automatically restricts active content, you will need to "Allow blocked content" so that the Java scripts behind the form can run.  (These scripts calculate and display the respective prices and totals.)  Do this by clicking on the "Information Bar" in your browser, and selecting "Allow blocked content" from the pop-up menu that  is presented to you.  We categorically assure you that these scripts merely support this web-page, and will not "harm your computer".

Preferred Currency

Conversion to a currency you are more familiar with.   (You can fine tune the Exchange Rate)

Country in which you are based:  

Approximate Exchange Rate:
$1.00 local buys US$

Note:  Exchange rates are approximations only.  There may be a variation from the value shown, due to differences in the actual exchange rate at the time of payment.   (Even if your own credit card is in US dollar values, there will be a very minor variation (usually in your favour), because the amount will actually be raised by us in equivalent New Zealand dollars and converted to your own local currency by your own bank.)

Purchases and leasing by companies based within New Zealand are subject to GST.   All prices shown below are GST exclusive.
