Buying Open Edge Directly from Progress

This question is not answered

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.
