Software as a Service (SaaS) Model

The annual license is also known as the subscription or software as a service (SaaS) fees which is billed annually.  Annual per-user-per-year fees is all-inclusive of yearly license, technical support, software maintenance throughout the year. The subscription fees will decrease with more users, usually on a tiered basis.
The benefit of SaaS licenses are:

The license fees are spread evenly over the life of the contract.

Low upfront costs – only implementation services and first year annual license

Annual licenses are purchased out of an Institute’s operational budget which can be easier to access than an Institute’s capital budget

License Model

This is the original enterprise software licensing model.  In the perpetual model of licensing, the client makes an upfront, one-time purchase of the Academia and then client owns the software.
The benefit of License Model are:

With a perpetual license, client usually has to decide on the number of licenses (generally linked to number of students) client needs upfront

The cost per license will decrease with more licenses, usually on a tiered basis

The major benefit of perpetual licenses is that client has to pay just once and they are set to use Academia for long time
