Making sure your software is always up to date can be a time-consuming process. To make the update process easier, Siemens provides the Software Update Service (SUS). SUS is the fastest and easiest way to ensure that your SIMATIC software is up to date at any time.
With the SUS, you automatically receive all newly released version of your industrial software, delivered straight to your door or inbox. This includes all upgrades and service packs at no additional charge. By always having the latest software and updates, you have the ability to take advantage of the improvements and innovations that the Siemens team has made to their products. This will help you decrease your Total Cost of Ownership, optimize your engineering productivity, and improve your Overall Equipment Effectiveness.
SUS is available for an annual flat rate, which is significantly more cost-effective than purchasing single upgrades. By purchasing SUS, you’ll also improve transparency for better budget planning. The only requirement is a valid software license for the latest available software version. One SUS is required for each installed software license. If you have multiple licenses to support, we can help you to bundle all your SUS subscriptions into a single SIEPRO Technical Service Agreement.
Want a digital version instead of hard copies? Online Software Delivery (OSD) gets licenses and software into your hands even faster – whether it’s a new order, upgrade, or service pack. OSD allows you to download licenses and SIMATIC software online. It’s as reliable as shipping hard copies, but a lot faster and more environmentally friendly. When updates are issued, you’ll be sent an email that contains all the necessary information and instructions for downloading the software and files. You can be sure the automation software you’re using will always stay up to date, anytime and right away.
If you have the need to maintain older versions of the software for existing installations, the current license enables the current version as well as all previous versions. If you have any questions about any of these issues, please feel free to reach out to the SEA team.
