In the Orthotics & Prosthetics industry, lifetime and monthly subscriptions are most commonly used to acquire and process software.

Lifetime subscriptions generally lead to high fees the first year for the software license; then, a yearly fee to keep support, maintenance and updates.

The problem with this subscription is that you need to make an initial big investment, in addition to a higher risk of overspending because you overpay for what you are actually using.

The monthly subscription has no initial fee- you pay a set amount per scan whether processing 1 or 100 scans a month. Although these two methods allow you to monitor exactly how much you spend each month, it does not adjust to your sales, and can be challenging to manage cash flow.

Besides, these options are not adapted when you have multiple scanners or computer seats because your cost is multiplied by how many you have.
