The aim of this document is to provide you with clarity around the options that you have available to you during this transition period. Rather than retire our FastTest solution, we wanted to provide you with the option to migrate to the next generation of testing and certification software. The new solutions that are detailed within, are available to purchase on subscription. This is a new way for Trimble MEP to offer software so read on for further details of the new software solutions and how they will benefit your business.
As a Trimble FastTest and Office customer what are my options now?
1. Upgrade to NAPIT FastTest
Your Office software also entitles you to a special introductory discount to the NAPIT FastTest solution. You are eligible to subscribe to NAPIT FastTest for £120 +VAT (£195 +VAT RRP to non-Trimble customers) per year, if you purchase on or before your Office service contract end date.
You may choose to replace all of your Trimble FastTest licenses (including the licenses within Office) with NAPIT FastTest at once in November, or you may choose to move the standalone FastTest licenses in November and the ones included within Office at the end of your Office support contract end date. Whichever suits your business needs better, Trimble and NAPIT representatives are happy to assist you.
2. Subscribe to the new Trimble Electrical Designer 2D bundle at a time appropriate to your business
Although renewal of Trimble FastTest support is no longer possible after 1st November 2020, you may still renew your Office bundle without the Trimble FastTest element. The other products within your Office bundle will continue to be developed by Trimble and will now be available to purchase on subscription too. If you would like to continue benefiting from the latest versions of ProDesign, Protect and SingleCable but with the simplicity of subscription and additional functionality, you can subscribe to Trimble Electrical Designer 2D, which contains multi-region versions of ProDesign, Protect HV and SingleCable Pro. The brand new multi-region feature enables you not only perform complex calculations compliant with the latest IET Wiring Regulations but also to IEC, VDE, ME (ADDC and DEWA) and NEN.
3. Continue to use your Trimble FastTest and Office bundle
You can of course continue to use Office and your data within your software, but it will be at your own risk if you do not renew support, as there would be no further data, content or software updates to Office after your support contract end date. You may decide to subscribe to NAPIT FastTest at any time but will not get the benefit of the special introductory Office customer price offer if you do so after your support contract end date.
What are the benefits that come with moving from my current software to subscription?
The move to subscription offers you a cost-effective route to continuous, supported access to the latest versions of the solutions and functionality that mean the most to your business. They are also delivered with new and enhanced features. So whether you prefer monthly direct debit or annual payment, subscription products simplify your route of access to software purchase, support, content and renewal, making the whole process more convenient for you.
