This is an expensive solution. Licensing fees are billed annually and there is no support included with what I pay.

All my clients are running under a special agreement using a client-server version of the DOORS product where they get a discount on the product and then only pay maintenance. They pay the maintenance on a yearly basis. They are mostly huge companies and this is partly how they were able to get this special agreement. It works well for them because we have informed the clients how they could reduce their maintenance costs.

It is very expensive. But, it depends on the project. The project must warrant the expense paid.
