Why FineReader PDF was switched to the subscription model?
ABBYY is constantly improving FineReader PDF by adding new features, updating existing and developing new core product technologies, fixing bugs, and so on. These improvements are included in either minor or major releases of the software. By switching to the Subscription model, we make sure that FineReader PDF users are always using the most recent, up-to-date, and functionally rich product. All updates and upgrades are included in the subscription and are delivered to users without additional upgrade or SMUA fees. In addition, access to the Support service is also included for all categories of customers.
Subscription will help ABBYY optimize and focus our team efforts and resources on delivering the best possible software product to our customers and to maintain high standards of providing customer services throughout the whole time of the software usage.
