Integration Manager is in the Customization Pack which is $10,000 and also includes the customization suite. The integration suite today is $5000. Existing Customers should purchase one of the suites before they move to Perpetual if they are going to need this functionality.
In order to get Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 you have to move to the Perpetual model. There is no charge to move. The protected list price remains protected and will not change and will transfer over.
Customers must be current on the Business Ready Enhancement Plan at the time they request to move to the Perpetual model. Since this is a pull model they have to request to go.
Scenario 1: if a customer is current on their maintenance when Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 ships and does not ask to move to Perpetual, if they drop off of maintenance they will not have rights to GP 2013.
Scenario 2: if a customer is not current on a maintenance plan, at any time they renew they can get Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013. They do not have to be current on a plan when we ship.
