When you invest in Waterloo Hydrogeologic Annual Maintenance Agreements, you ensure the continued success of your business initiatives by staying up-to-date with the latest software technologies, supported by professionals with the highest level of accreditation for, and knowledge about, our products.
It’s easy to forget how essential technical support services are, until you are up against a project deadline and require immediate technical assistance.

Additionally, keeping up-to-date with the latest software releases can be a time consuming process.
Why Purchase Annual Maintenance Agreements
Software Maintenance Agreements are designed to reduce the amount of time and effort required to keep your software up-to-date.
With automatic reminders of updates and upgrades, you will never have to wonder if your software is outdated. Additionally, with access to technical support services during the term of the Software Maintenance Agreement, you can obtain rapid resolution to all of your software-related questions.
- Reduces the time you spend researching upgrade information, allowing you to focus on what is important.
- Increases your technical knowledge by providing access to “advance-releases” of features that are slated for inclusion in future upgrades. These new features are only available to Software Maintenance Agreement subscribers.
- Software Maintenance Agreements reduce the cost of upgrading software, and provides free technical support, resulting in a significant cost savings.
Software Maintenance Agreements vary in price depending on which product you are purchasing maintenance for.
Your Maintenance Agreement begins in the month the product was purchased, regardless of when the product is activated.
