Regula SDK can be used with Regula Hardware as well as with 3rd-party document readers. That is why we have two options for pricing and annual updates.
For Regula SDK deployed with document readers, manufactured by Regula:
Each document reader manufactured by Regula is supplied by default with a perpetual Basic SDK license at no cost to deploy and no update costs to a client. The deployment and annual update costs are associated only with licenses for VizOCR, AAC modules or Full SDK option. Based on customer’s needs, we can offer two licensing models:
- A perpetual license, included in the initial hardware cost, with low-cost annual updates, starting from the year.
- Annually updated fixed-cost license.
In either case, the cost of a license depends on the size of a deployment, modules to be deployed and terms of payment (semi-annual, annual, multi-year upfront payment).
For Regula SDK deployed with document readers, manufactured by 3rd party (new deployments or legacy products):
When Regula SDK is deployed with 3rd-party document readers, the only option available is the annually updated fixed-cost license. For such deployment, the annual cost is associated with licenses for all SDK modules: Basic, VizOCR, and AAC. The cost of a license depends on the size of a deployment, modules to be deployed and terms of payment (semi-annual, annual, multi-year upfront payment).
