What is a perpetual licence?

A perpetual licence is the original purchasing model for software. Organisations pay for their software licence up-front, having the right to then use it forever.

Why is Lexacom Echo now available with a perpetual licence?

We have returned to offering this model for Lexacom Echo after requests from a range of customers investing in digital healthcare technologies, as it fits their purchasing procedures under the DHSC capital funding guidelines.

That is, with a perpetual licence, these customers can onboard Lexacom Echo as a one-off, capital expenditure (CapEx), rather than as an ongoing revenue expenditure item.

These customers are working within the NHSX strategy guidelines for digitising health services. That is ‘Digitise, connect, transform’.
