Easier and lower-priced, too: Upgrades to SoftMaker Office 2006

Some things become more affordable over time... We have cut through the forest of upgrade variants that we have been offering for SoftMaker Office... and removed close to HALF of the variants!

Not only does this make it easier for you to find which upgrade package is right for you, but it also means a significant reduction in price for many users: No customer will pay more than up to now, and many customers will save up to US$ 15/EUR 15 with the new price structure.

The model is very simple now: Every "regular" upgrade is just US$/EUR 34.95, and every "combined" (as in: Pocket PC + Windows, for example) upgrade is US$/EUR 49.95.

This is especially interesting for Pocket PC users, as they can now get the full SoftMaker Office for what they paid up to now for TextMaker alone!
