Buying Open Edge Directly from Progress

Posted by dlangschied on 27-Jan-2015 07:06

This may seem like a foolish post, but I tried to get sales information and Progress has not replied.

I have a small pre-compiled application that is stored into .pls.  I have a customer that will be new to Progress, so I will need to purchase the products necessary to run a database and the .r code.  There will only be 5 users and I am looking to keep the costs down.  What product will I need to get to make this happen?

Also, since I am not getting a reply from Progress at all, is there some way to purchase from Progress directly?

Need to understand a little bit more to properly help you:

What country are you located?

Are you currently a partner of Progress?

  •     If yes, have you sold to your customers in the past and who was the Sales Representative you've worked with?
  •     If not, is this the first time you are selling your application to a customer?  Who is/was your Sales Representative?

I have always worked with products that had Progress as part of the
purchase. The one time that i didn't I was in email contact with
Progress but the person is not returning my emails. I am so
frustrated about this. I am on the US.

To buy direct, you will have to be a partner.  I wold go here www.progress.com/.../progress-partner-plus and press the button and see where it takes you.

Oh, by the way, when someone leaves Progress, their e-mail turns into a black hole rather than being routed to a new person, so unless you know the person is still there, this could be the problem with your mails.
