If you would like to have a support contract for your reseller program, please review our support contract information and ask us to quote you the type of support you would like along with your product quotation.
Reseller Subscription PlanIf you are a media/production studio, a transcription/dictation company or a telephony solutions provider you may qualify for our "Reseller Subscription". *Note BMS (in-store announcements) is no longer under active product development, but can still be purchased and supported in its latest release - please submit an inquiry form for more information, or just go ahead and download it from our website and trial it for 14 days.
The Reseller Subscription may only be used for sales supplied in conjunction with other products or services you supply to the customer such as telephony hardware or services, voice production services or transcription services. It may only be used for customers whom you supply directly (you may not supply through other resellers).
Under this option you pay a flat monthly fee to have a subscription to supply our software to an unlimited number of your customers in a fixed geographic region for that time period. The license that you supply to your clients is for the life of the version of software you supply them with. If the software version changes it is your choice as a reseller to charge an extra fee to your clients to upgrade to the newer version, but your subscription account must be current.
You can sell licenses to your customers for any price or on any basis (eg. monthly fees) or even free so long as the customer is located in your geographic region (e.g. territory, country, state, province, etc.), deals with you directly, and your products/service charges are higher than the NCH product SRP you are providing. You can use the NCH Software SRP ("normal price") from our website as a guide.
Please Note: Resellers must have a good working knowledge of the product before they commence with a Reseller Subscription. We do provide technical support to resellers but this does not extend to training on how to use the application. You should be very familiar with computers and have a working knowledge of how software is installed and interacts with a computer and it's components.
Qualifying Software Applications A limited range of applications are available under the Reseller Subscription scheme. These include IVM and VRS (excluding the Enterprise versions of each), Express/Delegate/Dial/Web/Pocket/Palm Dictate User licenses. Also included under the Reseller Subscription scheme are IMS, BMS, MSRS, Axon and ExpressTalk** applications.
Site licenses for Dial and Web Dictate as well and Enterprise licenses for VRS and IVM can be purchased at discounted reseller rates through our standard reseller program described above.
Reseller Subscription Cost Guide Costs of a Reseller Subscription are usually for one geographic region, whether that is one country or one state/province/territory. We do not, at this time, offer the blanket license for a continent (i.e. Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, North America).
Subscription plan payments are based on quarterly intervals. Discounts apply for payments 6 months in advance (10%), 12 months in advance (20%) or 2 years in advance (40%).
**Express Talk is only available when you are reselling a complete PBX package and is not available on its own under the Reseller Subscription.
Becoming a Value-add Reseller
Standard Customized Branding of Software for ResellersNCH Software can build a rebranded version for most of our Windows applications. This customization makes the software point to your business which is a huge benefit if you are trying to create a brand image for your business, and refers customers to your website for purchasing, and cross-sells and upsells. In order to keep costs of the standard customization down the process is streamlined and the build is a set of exact text and image changes per your specifications. Please see our customized branding page for more information. **Please note NCH software will not do "white label" branding whereby the product name is changed, and/or reference to NCH Software and associated copyrights are removed.
Affiliate ProgramFor resellers who would simply like to refer customers and earn a commission or list/host our products on their site and receive a commission per sale we offer two affiliate programs.
