Boston, MA (ACS Conference) – Hypercube, Inc., developer of the popular molecular modeling package HyperChem, announced a unique annual license offer for academic institutions in the Untied States and Canada. This annual license allows an unlimited number of users to have access to the software, from a single server for a period of one year. It can be renewed for the same price each subsequent year for a period up to three years. When the license is renewed for the third year the institution is then granted a non expiring perpetual license .
Currently available in US and Canada only, plans are to expand this program globally in the near future. Annual license fees for HyperChem unlimited use from a single server are shown below:
HyperChem Suite = $10,750.00
HyperChem Professional = $7,700.00

Annual maintenance is available for the perpetual license at 17 % of the combined 3 year license fees.
