What is the MagicINFO Maintenance Fee?

Samsung Maintenance Service is sold through authorized distributors and resellers. However, MagicINFO users cannot purchase it directly from Samsung

When a user purchases MagicINFO on-premise licenses from MagicInfo Services, they receive Technical Support, Access to Knowledge Hub, and Support for Past MagicINFO Versions. These are 3 out of the 4 components of the Samsung Maintenance Service. 

However, the option for ‘Major Version Upgrade’ is not included in the price of MagicINFO on-premise from MagicInfo Services. Hence, the company (ScreenCom/MagicInfo Services) charges a one-time flat fee of 42 euros per premium connection to migrate clients from MagicINFO On-premise V6, V7, or V8 to MagicINFO On-premise V9.

For example, if a client has a Premium license and has 13 connections to it then it needs 13 Maintenance keys, each worth 42 euros. 


What does MagicInfo Services offer to MagicINFO Premium on-premise users

Included in the price of the MagicINFO Premium on-premise license

  • Technical Support

The Service can assist in troubleshooting for MagicINFO. Samsung will provide a resolution, steps towards a resolution, workarounds, configuration changes, or a remote session in accordance with the customer’s available support environment. Samsung assumes no responsibility for data loss when asked to assist a customer with the remote session.

  • Access to Knowledge Hub 

The Service provides access to the MagicINFO Knowledge Hub which is an extensive library of technical documents for MagicINFO. This Knowledge Hub is designed to help customers to resolve issues on their own quickly without opening a case and provides helpful technical and general information regarding the MagicINFO software.

  • Support for Past MagicINFO Versions 

Samsung will make commercially reasonable efforts to support past MagicINFO versions up to 3 years from its original release date or Samsung’s official version support termination date, whichever comes first.

Maintenance license key available for an extra fee

If a customer has purchased MagicINFO Premium on-premise license from MagicInfo Services and wants to upgrade from MagicINFO On-premise V6, V7, or V8 to MagicINFO On-premise V9, then they must purchase a Maintenance license key for each connection.
