Mariner Software Introduces Unprecedented Upgrade Plan

Minneapolis, MN – April 28, 2004 -Mariner Software, Inc. today announced a one-of-a-kind plan to help with the industry-wide issue of rising costs of software upgrades: the Lifetime Upgrade Plan.

For a one-time fee of $49.95, per copy, per product, Mariner customers qualify to receive every major upgrade for the lifetime of the registered product(s), delivered automatically to their inbox on the day of public release.

“Our Lifetime Upgrade Plan takes every business concept about the software industry upgrade model and flushes it down the toilet,” said Michael Wray, President of Mariner Software. “At some point in time, a software developer has to look at helping the customer opposed to helping the bottom line. We think we’ve accomplished that with the Lifetime Upgrade Plan.”

Site license and volume purchase plans for the Lifetime Upgrade Plan are also offered.

The Lifetime Upgrade Plan, as well as the Mariner product line, are available for purchase. For more information, visit
