The ACUMEN Service Program ensures that you always
have access to our latest technology, have the information
you need to maximize your system investment, receive
professional, attentive support, and are able to fully
contribute to the future development of the ACUMEN system.
Most software vendors charge an annual maintenance fee
and sell expensive upgrades of new versions. The ACUMEN
Service Program is an excellent value because one monthly
service fee covers maintenance, support, and all
new ACUMEN versions at no additional charge. For pricing

A Publisher's Perspective on the ACUMEN Service Program
David Gray purchased ACUMEN in 1992, within months of founding his publishing
company, Gray & Co., which focuses on Midwest regional
guide and gift books. Here's what he had to say about
the ACUMEN Service Program in a recent unsolicited eMail
"One of the best parts of the ACUMEN package is the ongoing development. There is a monthly support fee, but you really get something in return. We don't have to wait for annual updates - there are new features and improvements being developed constantly. And there's a real openness to customer feature requests. They don't all happen, or even happen right away, but they are closely listened to and considered, and as they're implemented the software keeps getting better. I think of ACUMEN like our lawyer and accountant - an ongoing professional partnership, not just a customer/vendor arrangement."
