We make it as easy as possible to help you acquire the Dlubal range of products
You decide whether to opt for an outright purchase or a lease-to-own option. With these options, it's now possible to get entire teams up and running with RFEM or RSTAB quickly, without the large once-off capital outlay.
Note on purchases
Currently, all purchases are facilitated by Tessera with Dlubal GMBH. What this means for you is that a software purchase may take between 5 and 10 business days between order and delivery, due to international exchange procedures as well as the delays associated with creating the software license files and international postal lead times.
The Purchase option
This is your simplest option. You simply go to the Price Calculator page to select the options you want. You can select a module combination that is offered as a standard package by Dlubal or you can select the modules that you require.
Some things to remember:
RFEM or RSTAB always form the basis of a design package. RFEM is a finite element method (FEM) solver, whereas RSTAB is a general purpose tool for frame analysis. It must be noted though that RFEM can perform all the functions that RSTAB can and more, but is more expensive.
The modules found under the "Cross Sections" and "Stand Alone Modules" sections can be used without the need for RFEM or RSTAB. The "Cross Sections" module is integrated with RFEM and RSTAB however, in order to allow users to import custom sections back into the analysis packages.
Support and maintenance is included for the 1st year of purchase, thereafter you can decide if you wish to continue with support and maintenance. The service contract has options for basic or Pro support which determines how your queries are prioritised by Dlubal during periods when there may be a lot of queries. The service contract also entitles you to free product updates - these are tyically for bug fixes or feature enhancements.
Product upgrades are NOT included as part of the service agreement and you can decide if and when you would like to purchase a new release of the software

The Lease-to-Own option *
With this option, you can elect to pay for your software over a 24 month period. You simply go to the Price Calculator ** page to select the options you want. You can select a module combination that is offered as a standard package by Dlubal or you can select the modules that you require.
Some things to remember:
The same points to consider for an outright purchase apply for this option
This option is simply designed to assist companies with cash flow restrictions - by utilising this option you can have the software immediately but amortise the payments over a 2 year period. Your monthly payment can also be expensed directly, rather than be treated as a capital purchase with a large cash outlay, followed by depreciation over 2 years.
It must be noted that you will own the software after 2 years, and you will have the option to decide what to do at this point in terms of the service agreement. A service agreement is included in the quote for the lease-to-own option, for the duration of the lease contract.
Product upgrades are NOT included as part of the lease-to-own agreement and you can decide if and when you would like to purchase a new release of the software
* The lease-to-own option is subject to our terms and conditions. Clients will be required to provide company financial data upon application.
