AnthemScore provides an option to upgrade to a higher edition after you purchase by clicking Tools > Editions > Upgrade. The price is the difference in cost of the 2 editions plus about USD $5, so you can save some money if you buy the higher edition up front instead of upgrading later on. If you upgrade within 24 hours of purchase, the price is discounted to only the cost difference plus $0.

Software Updates

AnthemScore Lite and Professional come with free software updates for 1 year. After that, when you update to a new version you will see a link to purchase another year of updates for about 75% of the normal purchase price. Purchasing new updates is completely optional. You can always continue to use any older version that you have already purchased and installed forever. Some, but not all, older versions are maintained on the site for download if you need to re-install an older version.

30 Day Free Trial
